Fall Fashion Trend: Baroque Accessories


Baroque Trend

Want to add some dark yet elegant pieces to your wardrobe? Look no further than baroque accessories.

These must-have accessories are ornate, rich and perfect for fall and winter. They add an almost Tim Burton-esque vibe to any outfit. When adding a baroque accessory (or two!) to your wardrobe, be on the lookout for unique pieces that are dark-colored, detailed and look like they came straight out of the Victorian Gothic era.

Here’s some fabulous accessories that will easily give you some baroque style:


Whether you like rings, necklaces, bracelets or brooches, there’s a baroque-inspired option out there for you. Be on the lookout for really intricate and uniquely detailed pieces in either a rich gold or gunmetal.

If you want to rock some baroque-style shoes, look for vintage-inspired pairs, especially of the lace-up variety. Boots are a great option, as well as sturdy heels.

    I love the Baroque Items you found and in fact have just ordered the Lion/Tassle Earrings! Thinking about the Victorian Wedge Boots as well! This is truly a look that I can go crazy with!

    I love these accessories! It adds a bit of vintage glam to any look… I am seriously considering those tall lace-up boots from F21. I just worry that they might look cheap in real life.

    I would have liked to see some sample outfits, but otherwise, great post!

    i dont know why, but for some reason I really dont like this… i think maybe the ring or scarf would look nice, but i’m really not digging the rest. guess everyone has different tastes! :)

    I adore this style! I have mixed feelings on the tights, but besides those all your choices are fantastic, especially those gorgeous lace heels.

    I like this style :) however, I believe the Baroque age and the Victorian age are quite different – Baroque was roughly the 1600s and the Victorian age was roughly 1800s, if my art history course is serving me right. Both of these are great periods though – I’d love to see fashion inspired both of these time periods respectively :) my favourite of the pieces are the lace booties and the gloves! so elegant

    I love how interesting all these accessories are, but can you show us how to fuse them with a more current outfit so we don’t end up looking to gothy.

    This trend is perfect for fall! I agree with Dominique though, I would’ve liked to see sample outfits.

    This is my favorite trend…I love pairing it with unexpectedly grungy things to mix it up.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    Sarah- I found a pair of similar boots here. They’re about $20 more expensive, but ASOS does offer free shipping if you live in the US!

    This is the most beautiful post I have ever seen on CF – Brava! (Despite the fact that the Victorian and Baroque eras are vastly different times, there are aesthetic similarities in terms of the dark and richly dramatic.) I want all of these, and the cutest are the black, lace-up heels from Urban Outfitters, though of course they don’t come in size 5, because pretty shoes so rarely do. :(

    I’m mildly obsessed with 17th century France/court of Versailles, so I am so excited that this is becoming a fashion trend.

    If anyone needs more inspiration, watch the movies Le Roi Danse or Amadeus. =)

    This IS baroque style fashion-wise!!! True, the things look like they are from the Victorian/Edwardian era, and they do not look like the Baroque and Rococo architecture and art which featured elaborate cherubs and gilded everything. But art is not being discussed here. In fashion parlance this is a baroque look.
    I also love all of it except those weird tights. I don’t think they are baroque, I think they are boho, and they are odd. No offense. Great post!!

    I really love the scarf in the top left under other accessories. I like dark edgy items like these :)

    This is one of my favorite fall posts so far, and it came at the perfect time. Just wanted to let you know that this was the major inspiration for my fall/winter accessory shopping. You chose beautiful pieces and it was a wonderful jumping off point.

    Ooh I adore this kind of stuff. I’m always super happy when these things become trendy because that means I can snatch up a ton of cute stuff for my Gothic Lolita wardrobe without spending a ton of money.
