Baroque Trend - Translating Runway Style To Everyday

My favorite bloggers have already explored the beauty and decadence of the Baroque trend in the past few weeks. As most of the world heads into the cooler months it is quite fitting that this should be a Fall 2013 trend but I'm in love and can't wait to swaddle myself in some of the trends luxurious elements even though we're heading into the Australian Summer. So here are some ideas on how we can capitalize on the look and get an extra season out of the trend ;)

Dolce & Gabbana gave us an army of beauties lavishly decorated in black and gold. Look for details such as embroidery, lace, sheer panels, applique and anything ornate. For jewelry stick to gold and regal gemstones.

This Golden Garden Dress available at Modcloth embodies the trend perfectly with it's gold embroidered overlay. Coming in at a teeny tiny $74.99 it's perfect for a wedding or that office cocktail party over the holiday season. Come Fall 2013 layer it up with a luxurious velvet blazer and opaque stockings. A few dollars well spent!

If black and gold is too strong a statement for you or you feel the color scheme is too heavy for Spring / Summer D&G gave us the option of luxurious fabrics such as heavy laces and pretty and rose prints that can be worn through Fall and into the warmer months.

Every lady simply MUST have a lace dress in her wardrobe! There is something about a cream or white lace piece that screams luxury and I personally find the color allows the detail of the lace itself to take center stage. This Anna Sui lace dress is an investment piece in it's classic color and styling. Even with it's long sleeves it's still a great pick for the cooler Spring evenings here in Melbourne and will easily see you through into Winter. Pair it with striking gold accessories for an opulent look.

Take a light and fresh approach to Baroque with this little strapless rose pattern dress from Asos. Another example of how this trend can be cross seasonal. This piece would be perfect on date night or pair with a light cardi and pointed toe pumps for a special Christmas lunch. But wait...throw on some sky high strappys and a striking red lip and you're ready to party into the New Year. At $114 it's a great alternative to the little black dress ;)

I can't wait to get my Baroque on! Will you be wearing this trend through the warmer months as well?
