One of the biggest trends for Autumn Winter 2012 is baroque. Gold, black and bold jewel shades flooded catwalks, while floral and elegant curling patterns appeared on trouser suits, t-shirts and structured dresses. Here at Littlewoods we love the baroque look, but there are a number of ways to take this trend and make it your own, especially for curvy women. Our So Fabulous partywear range for this season takes baroque’s key colours of black and gold and adds a modern twist with studs, foil print and figure-flattering shapes.
A statement dress is the perfect garment for your Christmas wardrobe – easily dressed up or down; it’s great for the office party while still being suitable for a formal dinner or dressed down for a lunch date. The So Fabulous Mesh Top Studded Bodycon Dress in bold pink has slimming black side panels, a mesh neckline and edgy gold studs; it’d look gorgeous with the Holly Willoughby Cassidy Strappy Platform Shoes. The So Fabulous Nikki Stud Cutwork Dress is another good addition to your partywear wardrobe – team with black tights and ballerina pumps for day or statement heels for a night out.
If you prefer something a little more tailored, then for the ultimate showstopper dress try the So Fabulous Gold Rush Cross Front Dress with its distinctly 50s feel and pretty bow detail at the waist. A deep V-neck is flattering for women with larger busts, while the sparkling gold fabric is bang on the baroque trend. Another core baroque colour (and one that’s super fashionable for AW2012) is purple – so how about the So Fabulous Sequin Neck Dress in a rich berry shade? Pair with the Clarks Drum Beat4 Jewel Court Shoes and chunky gold bangles for a relaxed but glamorous look.
Finally, if you prefer trousers and t-shirts to a dress, don’t worry – you can still channel the baroque trend! The So Fabulous Dipped Back Art Deco T-shirt, with its pretty gold foil print, looks great worn with the So Fabulous PU Front Leggings; try some black suede-look boots like the Love Label Flat Over the Knee Boots with the outfit for a contrast. The finishing touch is the softly tailored So Fabulous Stud Jacket, which looks just as good over a cocktail dress as over jeans and a shirt.
How will you be wearing the baroque trend this season?
