One of the most exciting autumn/winter trends to me personally is the undeniably dramatic Baroque trend, possibly because of its rebellious attitude towards the concept of less is more in the economic downturn! It neatly ties in with rich, warm autumnal colours and is a look that simply oozes decadence, exuberance and the height of sophistication. The very minute the Dolce and Gabanna models glided down the catwalk in Milan in their sumptuous baroque gowns, we knew that this look was going to be HUGE! At Walk in Wardrobe we have remained bang on trend and have sourced the most gorgeous baroque inspired dresses at unbeatable prices to ensure that you can look every inch the baroque queen when you go to your special occasion!
This look is all about embellishment, shimmer and gold EVERYWHERE, reviving the regal trends of the 17th century, being ornate, intricate and completely utterly gorgeous. This style largely concentrates on black and gold, and looks amazingly fabulous with matching black and gold accessories from the dramatic chandelier earrings to sparkly bangles and gorgeous clutch bags. However, although this look is very much about the blacks and golds, don’t be afraid to add some colour to your baroque outfit. Claret reds, cobalt blue and royal purples can continue to give you that expensive, opulent baroque feel. Regardless of how you wear your baroque look, there’s only one thing to do now – get shopping and get that look!
This year I seem to have blinked at the crucial moment when summer arrived in the UK. My circle of friends have been very disappointed with the summer this year, but here at Walk in Wardrobe we believe that there is always a silver lining, this particular silver lining being in the shape of an opportunity to start experimenting with a new line of autumn fashion trends! There has been so much excitement amongst the fashion circles as this autumn’s fashion promises to be uniquely different from previous autumns of late, being bolder and more blingy! Here are the key autumnal fashion trends for 2012:
Bold colours: The autumn fashion this year has moved away from traditional autumnal shades of browns and dark greens. Instead, designers have been picking out the boldest colours in their colour pallet, in particular the most luxurious shades of cobalt blue and royal purple. One noticeable hot trend on the autumn runway was to mix cobalt blue with black. This look can be achieved with one of our gorgeous little cobalt blue dresses and accessorising with our sparkly black bangles, fascinators or sparkly alice bands. Team this look up with a killer pair of black heels and voila! You’re ready to go!
Shimmer and lace: That very classy look of shimmer and lace are in this autumn to give you that elegant and chic evening look. These lacy accents look gorgeous over the neck and back, and lace overlays have the most stunning, show stopping effect. These lacy adornments are not only there to glam up a dress, they can also be very flattering for ladies who want to cover problem areas such as their arms. Lacy sleeves can stop an outfit from looking frumpy and maintain a glamorous look whilst still giving you confidence.
Cinched-in waists: This can only mean one thing – the much-favoured peplum is still in! These flattering dresses have a unique ability to cinch in the waists of all body shapes whilst also elongating the figure and giving you that iconic silhouette! At the boutique we have the perfect dress in stock which will kill two fashion birds with one stone – the royal purple peplum dress!
Bling: Sparkly accessories will be all the rage this autumn, cheering up the autumn weather with a bit of glitz and bling! We have so many twinkling little gems at the boutique at the moment from bangles to hair candy to shoes to complete your autumnal look.
