If you want to talk about sophistication, excess and luxury in terms of fashion, talk about baroque style. Born around 1600 in Rome, Italy and spread shortly around Europe, baroque style is all about emotion and drama. So if you are looking for an elegant evening gown, a black one with golden embroideries will make you look like a million dollars.
Spiraling details, golden colors, lace and velvet prints sometimes combined with leopard and flower prints are features of this fashion style, a style to be adopted by those who are not afraid to be noticed.
If it’s elegant, it doesn’t mean it has to be boring, take a look at these wonderful colors in the pictures below, you can almost see Michelangelo adding a sophisticated touch to their clothes.

Baroque is also about flower prints and colors, as I already pointed out, and you’ll see a lot of it this summer because this style inspired the high-fashion designers, but low-end brands are up-to-date as well, so you won’t have to sell your car in order to buy a baroque style inspired clothing item ;)
