Just when you thought minimalism was still at its peak, luxurious prints and opulent embellishments are reigning supreme for F/W 12.

From gilded filigree and appliques to heavy brocades and lavish fabrics, adopting the Baroque look will ensure that you make an impression this fall.

Dolce and Gabbana laid out a sumptuous feast of rich golds and velvets and ornate florals, while Balmain and Mary Katrantzou showcased decorative, architectural pattern and embroidery.

The look has been presented in a number of ways with varying degrees of brilliance. For the bold, adventurous types, flashy chain prints on animal prints intertwine with ropes and other regalia, on just about everything. For more minimalist girls, swirling gold flora and fauna adorn pencil skirts, trousers and dresses.

The trend isn’t strictly for clothing either, with accessories getting in on the act too. Decorative motifs adorn everything from shoes, bags and even sunglasses.

You’ll look utterly decadent from your head to your feet with our top picks to savor.

Fall and winter are sure to be the ultimate “la belle epoque!”
