Rock Baroque

It is almost impossible that you have not yet heard, seen or read about a specific fashion trend for this upcoming winter. It derives from a former, royal time, where Kings and Queens ruled over Europe in the most opulent, bright and exaggerated outfits of fashion history. The era we are talking about is Baroque and in winter 2016 we are going to rock this style. 

Rock Baroque On The Runways

International Designers interpreted the Baroque Style differently, each in their on way. The typical materials, like used in the old times are velvet, lace and brocade, the colour palette reaches from Gold over Bordeaux to Forest Green. Much attention gained again the military (velvet) jacket, a garment that has been interpreted by Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Saint Laurent (to name just the most important ones). Another big thing is the collar bow, which pops out under jackets, dresses or vests.

…And On The Streets

On the streets we see the approach to the Rock Baroque Trend very casual, easy and subtle. The best way to incorporate it into a simple daytime look is, to either go for one trend piece a time or to pimp up an outfit with Baroque accessories. Therefore denim works great as a modern contrast that brings the ‘Rock’ to the Baroque. Big, golden jewels, like rings, collars and ear rings or brooches work as great as precious clutches or embellished ankle boots. By adding the military jacket the Indie Style is perfect.
