Baroque is one of fall’s top trend categories and it’s a great way to look like a million bucks (without spending a million bucks)!
Its richly textured fabrics and ornate designs instantly make you look and feel empowered at work. Don’t be afraid to wear lush velvets, intricate jacquard prints, or even a little bit of glitter to the office. You’ve got permission this season to go for it!
The secret to its success is making one baroque-style piece the focal point in your outfit and have all other clothing and accessories support that piece. This way, the style will not wear you. For more specific tips, see above.
Is it important to you to look confident at work? If so, do you ever use clothes to help get you in the mood?
