This look is all about making an impression and subtlety goes right out the window!
Dolce & Gabbana set the tone for this trend on the catwalk, but there’s no need to break the bank as there are plenty of great baroque dresses on sale on the high street. Here’s my top 5 baroque dresses for Autumn 2012, with a few different variations on the trend.
71. Black And Gold Baroque Sequin Shift Dress (River Island)
A beautiful gold baroque pattern, overlayed in sequin on a black dress. Accessorise with River Islands black pearl cross dangle earings (£15) for a look that’s sure to leave a lasting impression. I love this one!
Available for £60 at River Island
62. Baroque Print Midi Bodycon Dress (Topshop)
Not enough gold in that last dress? Well how about this baroque print midi bodycon dress from Topshop, which features a gold baroque print covering pretty much every available inch of the dress!
Available for £45 at Topshop
53. Club L Belted Lace Dress (Republic)
If you’re not a fan of gold then this belted lace dress from Republic might be more up your street. Tasteful silver and black adornes the dress, which features a striking swirl print baroque pattern. A great look for a night out on the town.

44. Elliet Velvet Baroque Print Bodycon Dress (missguided)
If you’re looking for a bargain and a more subtle take on the baroque theme, then this baroque print bodycon dress is currently half price at missguided. The black bodycon dress features a velveteen baroque print design and keeps you on trend with a modern twist, which looks great with platform heels. This one has been added to my shopping list!

3Baroque print gown (Mango)
Back to gold for the last dress on my list and another busy design, which features a gold baroque print overlayed on royal blue. This dress from Mango also features a detachable belt with decorative tassle endings, adding to the decadent theme.
Looks amazing in the picture on the left combined with the gold embossed choker (£17.99, also from mango).
