Fall 2012 Style Inspiration: Baroque Flair and Ornate Embellishments
By Claire

I’ve been having so much with these Style Inspirations, I decided to keep ‘em going with another one of Fall 2012′s hottest trends: Baroque and Ornate Embellishments.
It’s all about gilded curlicues, jacquard, and embroidery.
Check out my splurges and steals:

The first look is a splurge circus with a $3,478 Emilio Pucci Beaded Milano Stitch Viscose Jacket, $1,502 DSquared Stud Pumps, and $1,300 Bottega Veneta Sequined clutch:

I admittedly got a bit carried away, but brought it back with this $40 Baroque Cardigan by River Island (you might remember it from our 2 Chainz concert style inspiration):

I toned it down with $84 Leigh Jeans from Topshop and Zara’s $159 Studded Ankle Boots, but added an irreverent twist with a $28 snakeskin hat from River Island and a $14 New Look Baroque Beaded Clutch:

If you’re more of a dress girl, get into Clover Canyon. I’m a huge fan of their $237 baroque printed dress:

Add a chic touch with $1,695 Nicholas Kirkwood Metallic floral-embroidered mesh sandals and a $2,165 Alexander McQueen Unicorn clutch:

The last look incorporates a save: Rare’s $63 Baroque Skater Dress.

Head back to Zara for their $90 Court pumps, and complete with a dash of red lipstick.

What do you think?
Which would you wear?

  21. Nikkibellaray says:

    I love it! Awesome post!

  22. Suri says:

    Imho, all the looks are way too busy, from the clothes to the accessories. The first look for instance: The jacket should be the focus since it’s a masterpiece. No need to go heavy with the necklace and the earrings. The second look is too much as well. Way too busy and overstyled.
    But all the pieces individually are gorgeous.

  23. Chris styles says:

    Love the looks but you should’ve includedsome affordable options also, but good inspiration. SN: Tom Ford must be smoking! $48 for one lippie!? Not I…
