Style Watch: Baroque Beauty

It’s bold, beguiling, opulent and… everywhere. A quick scan of the high street will tell you that the Baroque trend is taking centre stage amongst high street retailers, having graced numerous catwalks of the season. As one that channels Elizabeth I meets super-luxe, meets gothic princess, this trend can be tricky to work and certainly isn’t one for the faint fashion hearted. Not just that, but pricey too. As retailers coin in on the ‘maximalist’ aesthetic, we’re left with bags full of rich jacquards and heavy embellishments, and empty bank accounts to prove it. Likelihood is you don’t have regal budgets, so our advice? Don’t over-do it. To avoid looking like an extra from The Tudors, work this trend through one statement piece (not four!), and accessories that are thoughtfully considered.
