Baroque Inspiration

In the arts, Baroque is both a period and the artistic style that dominated it. The Baroque style used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in fashion, sculpture, painting, literature, and music. The style started around 1600 in Rome, Italy and spread to most of Europe. A new liberalism was reflected in looser-fitting, unlaced and more casual clothes for both men and women. Large feathered hats and plumes became popular, together with often impractical, large, soft-leather boots, or highly decorated shoes. The Elizabethan farthingale was rejected in favour of looser, layered skirts (often of satin or silk), allowing much greater freedom of movement. Contours are softer and colours more vivid and sensuous than in the previous generation. Lace is finer and more elaborate. Embroidered floral decorations are popular in fabrics worn by both sexes.
I think Baroque style is timeless. I find it very sexy and powerful us a fashion style. It’s offers you plenty space of imagination. So match pieces as you want and how it is suits on you. Here below you can see some of my finds on www.asos.it and www.motelrocks.com. Have fun and keep sexy!

Have a wonderful week,



  1. imi place barocul din pozele astea.Ciudat, la prima vedere toate lucrurile astea par nepotrivite, pe cand in poze e cu totul altfel

    1. stilul e foarte generos in culori, forme, imagini, tesuturi...iti lasa teren de creativitate. Libertatea imaginatiei :)
