Go for the Baroque look to glitter like gold
(NC) – Fashion, romance and drama are in the air this holiday season. From cocktail dresses to accessories, true style is all about drama.
Classic black is still the go-to choice for special occasions, but this year be sure to add elegance with gold accents and fashion jewellery that makes a statement, especially bold brooches and pieces featuring coloured gems.
Play with metallic embellishments, leather accents, bold, jewel tones and patterned textiles to bring on the bling. Sumptuous and sparkling gold accents and accessories found at retailers like Sears reflect the timeless era of Baroque styling with a decidedly modern twist. This is also a season for embroidered touches of gold that complement basic black for maximum impact. Cynthia Florek, the trend director for women's wear at Sears says: “This Baroque look places its emphasis on textured fabrics, prints and ornate detailing.”
Menswear is also on a more elegant track for the holidays. “Velvet is a key fabric,” says Nancy Dennis, trend director, men's wear at Sears. “A velvet blazer is sensational and it can really add drama.” Complete the look with a touch of shine, perhaps from a watch or from a button detail, and any man can count on making an entrance in a look that's unexpected.
