I think one of the fresher feeling trends for fall is the awesomeness that is baroque. Every September fashion magazine was sporting gilted goodness and I was tooootally drooling over this look. I guess I just think it’s pretty fabulous to walk around looking like a Fabregé Egg :D.

I’ve been keeping my eye out on ethical option for this trend for all of you when I stumbled on ASOS Africa’s A/W 2012 Collection.

ASOS Africa Tunic with Print Detail-$66.84
ASOS Africa Shirt in Mirror Print-$70.36
ASOS Africa Peplum Dress $105.54

I am loving the ASOS Africa A/W collection and it totally fits into the baroque trend! I also love that ASOS Africa is made by fair trade cooperative SOKO based in Kenya.

But in case you’re on a tighter budget I also thrifted some great baroque options for you under $22 :).

  1. Royal Blue Vintage blouse-$20
  2. Baroque Scarf-$12
  3. Baroque Circle Skirt-$20
  4. Needlepoint Embroidered Bag-$18
  5. Baroque Tee-$22

If you think that this bold bold pattern is a bit difficult to wear, I would have to beg to differ friend. I happened to thrift a baroque printed dress over the summer, so voilá baroque and me :D.

The baroque print actually works really nicely into my wardrobe! The boldness adds a lot of style to my basics and the gilded baroque print I think works as a great pop under neutral sweaters or blazers.

So what do you think friends?!? Diggin’ going baroque?
