How I Style: Baroque

Baroque seems to be everywhere this winter, and I'm not surprised. I didn't actually realise how much I had in this style until I sorted my stuff out the other day and voila! Lots of baroque! Who knew! Anyway, it's been forever since I've done anything fashion related and it's a nightmare to try and do an OOTD at the mo, so I decided to go a "How I Style" post instead... Hope you enjoy!

Birthday Outfit
I actually have this outfit... well, the skirt and top and books just like it. The top is a basic black peplum which is a must have it any girls wardrobe nowaways and the skirt is a jersey pencil skirt, black with a bronze/gold design from New Look (unforutantely not available anymore). Team together and it's the perfect match. Sometimes I have tucked the top into the skirt and hidden the peplum (Adam prefers it like this) and it's great both ways. Just team with a chunky gold necklace and some black ankle boots and you have my birthday outfit!

Shopping Trip
You can't really go wrong with a blazer and jeans and this cute little peplum is the perfect example of how to jazz up the baroque trend - it doesn't all have to be black and gold! Not only that but it's only £12 in Dorothy Perkins - bargain! Jeans and blazer are from Toppers. I've tried to bring the purple out with these gorgeous slipper-esk pumps from BooHoo and then a basic black bag from H&M to carry all your credit cards in!

Lunch with the Girls
I love teaming cute dresses with chunky knits at this time of years. It's a way of looking cute and smart, but staying warm n chic. I fell in love with this Oasis dress, fitted and in the sale in House of Fraser. Pop it with some classic black tights for a timeless feel and this gorgeous tan cardigan to bring out the golds in the dress. Finally top it off with some cowboy ankle boots to keep your feet comfy.

How would you style these items?
