If you want to land up right in front of the fashion curve this season, seek inspiration in art history. The bold and dramatic baroque trend has made a glittering back, and Bollywood fashionistas are sporting the trend with resplendent attires.
What is baroque
From minimal baroque to head to toe ornate attires, divas such as Sonakshi Sinha, Karisma Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, and Anoushka Sharma have been recently spotted making a baroque statement. Designers say baroque is perfect when you want to stand out in a party.
“A major hit globally, the trend is all about indulgence and grandeur. It make a strong fashion statement,” says designer Kapil Arora.
You too can work the look if you keep it non-costumey. Since it is a over-the-top look, choosing a baroque outfit can be a tad tricky. “Let one element be the highlight of your dress,” says designer Nida Mahmood. A no-accessories and minimal makeup teams up best with baroque.
Baroque fashion is inspired by the Roman and Italian art movement of the 16th and 17th century. A revolt against minimalism, it is marked by dramatic, over-the-top outfits spruced up with gilded laces, embellishments, filagree, embroidery, and appliques.
