Is the Baroque Print for You?

One thing I’ve learned in our plus size fashion community is that just because one of us falls in love with a trend doesn’t mean we all do. Mind boggling isn’t it? This past week I was reminded of that when I dismissed a horrible pair of printed pants only to find that everyone else loved  them. Everyone thought they were Versace inspired…me on the other hand? I thought they were grapes. 

I know I’m weird.

It seems like every week there’s a new fashion trend to keep up with and this week it’s that baroque print and I’m just not sure how I feel about it. It’s not horribly ugly, but I’m just not sure if I would wear it.

In case you’re wondering, the baroque print is an artistic style of the 1600′s that represented drama, luxury, and exuberance. From far away it looks OK, but then I try to imagine it on me and it’s just not working. Wonder if it will grow on me?

I’m super curious…

Do you own any pieces with this print? Why do you love or hate it?

    I am loving that DP dress as well. I am in the maybe category. Sometimes it can be too much and too trendy, whereas I cant see it coming back next fall, but other prints kind of look pretty. I guess it depends the piece of clothing and the type of print. The DP dress is a bit more subtle, but then again it does combine two trends in one (peplum and baroque)… I wonder what our children are going to look back on our styles and think..this one in particular…. weird or fantastic….

      That Dorothy Perkins dress is pretty hot! And I agree about it depending on the clothing the print is on.

    I’m really not all about it either. It reminds me of a persian rug. Which i wouldn’t like to wear :D

    I love a bold pattern and its nice to see an option that’s not floral. I ordered that skirt skirt from ASOS but was not happy with the quality so I’m still looking for my baroque piece.

    • CURVESandCHAOS

      Me too…that sucks about the quality though! Booooo! lol

    I do not own any baroque print, but I do have floral prints and paisleys in my wardrobe! Awesome post! :-)

      Thank you Isabel! This is definitely a print between the two.
