COLLARS IN FASHION: Baroque


Dating back to the 1600's in Italy. Baroque was an era of artistic style that was filled with the arts as well as riches. From music to architect, everything was to the highest standard with every single detail covered. 

Fast forward to the 21st century, Baroque is back thanks to Dolce and Gabbana's A/W 12 catwalk. Packed with jacquard prints, ornate jewels and gold, who can't resist a bit of glamour? Especially since the Christmas season is round the corner, parties will be taking place everywhere and the perfect place to wear your version of the Baroque trend. 

Now I realise wearing lots of gold embellishment and large jewellery suits a night out. So to be more appropriate for everyday attire, Miss Selfridge's Baroque inspired Collar is perfect for sprucing up any basic outfit! For ideas, team it with a leather skirt, knitted jumper and some ankle boots or combine with a basic skater dress to add texture. 

Since I love collars (as the blog name suggests) and they're fashionable items at the moment. Over the next few weeks I'm thinking of doing a post on Collars in Fashion like this one. It will cover, outfit ideas as well as key prints and pieces for the trend. 
Do you have any suggestions of particular trends? I have a few ideas but what trends would you like to see?
