Trend Alert: Baroque is no joke

The Baroque time period (1600-1750) was a time of emotion and extravagance. Royalty and church leaders were focused on being the best and brightest and showing off their finest things–especially their fashion. Jump a few centuries and Baroque is back. From sparkling tops to ornamental accessories, fall’s fashion is all about rich embellishment (even the word “embellish” dates back to the Baroque period!) The luxury of this trend is in the details: lace, velvet, and fur trimmings. Look for lush colors and intricate detailing, anything that seems luxuriously romantic will keep you on-trend this fall. Find Baroque inspired fashion during vivre.com’s fall preview.

Multi-tasking trends!
