Balmain, Balmain, Balmain… You’ve done it again. I simply adore their collection for Fall/Winter 2012, full of beautiful symmetrical patterns and intricate, feminine details. Balmain, forever known for their glam rock style, incorporated these prints into high hemlines, silver and gold, and altogether glitz. Of course, other high-end designers also incorporated this trend into their collections, such as Andrew Gn, Givenchy, and Dolce & Gabanna. Unfortunately, if you are like me, you probably don’t have thousands of dollars to shell out on some designer baroque-inspired apparel.
Oh, but do not fret, my friends! I have listed below various ways to incorporate this trend into your fall wardrobe, without breaking the bank.
Wear this black and gold pencil skirt with minimal accessories and a smoky eye for an evening out. You can purchase it here.
This ASOS shirt is reminiscent of Balmain’s ornate flower pattern, and yet is only $26. Find it here.
Here are some baroque-printed denim shorts by Pink Mink. They’ll only set you back $82 and are available for purchase here. These are great for the remaining weeks of summer, and can be worn with a pair of black tights underneath for when the temperature cools down.
Harem pants are quickly becoming a wardrobe staple, with their effortless chic style. This lovely pair by YesStyle can be purchased here.
This Clover Canyon dress is reminiscent of Givenchy’s latest scarf print, and you can snatch one up here.
What do you guys think of the baroque-inspired trend, and how would you wear it?
Reminds me of the Elton John album cover:
