Baroque Beauty

Fresh off the runway, Dolce and Gabbana's Fall 2012 Collection presents their take on the grandiose Baroque period. Spreading throughout most of Europe during the 17th and 18th century, these ladylike silhouettes, exaggerated patterns, and regal colors are making a comeback this fall in full force. Infused with a more modern twist, the giant poofy skirts of the past are replaced with more fitted styles to show off one's femininity in a slightly more futuristic way. Look for pieces adorned with Baroque filigree for a great statement piece. Go a step further by adding a hint of glam with metallic touches in regal gold! Embrace this trendy blast from the past by incorporating this fun trend into your back-to-school wardrobe. Think how perfect it would be to pay homage to the Baroque period in your trendy ensemble while sitting in your history class!
