Upcoming Trend: Baroque & Roll

Baroque & Roll

We first starting seeing this trend last year, with designers like Balmain and Cavalli showing luxe rock looks for fall 2010. Well for fall 2011 more designers like Jason Wu, Alexander McQueen and Anna Sui hopped on the Baroque & Roll train - a crazy mix of opulence (I has it), boho and rock that somehow works.

The recipe is quite easy: add in two cups of rich fabrics, such as velvet, brocade, tapestry or jacquard, add in a dash of shiny metallic (all of a sudden lamé doesn't seem so dated!), simmer until slim and slinky, sprinkle on a boho accessory or two and you're set! Think Versailles meets Mick Jagger. I think the trick is to be inspired by male style icons such as Jagger, Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards - you'll look bad ass and somehow accidentally sexy instead of trying to be sexy.
