Women's Fall 2012 Sweaters

Mixed Separates Monday: Brocade Beauties

In the mood for adding some luxe items into your fall wardrobe? Baroque-inspired pieces are just the way to accomplish that goal. Brocade prints are richly decorative woven fabrics, often made in various silks coupled with the use of gold and silver threads.

Designers like Jason Wu, Dolce & Gabbana and Balmain all captivated the runways with their Baroque-inspired collections for Fall 2012. These collections mixed shimmering, satin jackets with opulent, printed pants and eye-catching velvet pieces. I personally loved the way that Dolce & Gabbana combined brocade prints with lace details on cocktail dresses and corsets creating the most elegant ensembles.

Here are a few of my favorite Baroque inspired picks for the season. What do you think of these picks? Have you added any Baroque pieces to your fall wardrobes?
