Baroque style in clothes

The Baroque style is a style of luxury and wealth that are not shy and want to be flaunted. But such posturing should be built with the mind. The style has an incredible attractive brightness, it also shines with gold, and its incorrect application can turn you not into a refined beauty, but a Christmas tree.

  • Like any historical baroque style, it was due to contradictions and the desire for change. In this he did not become an exception. Given the time of its appearance( the 16th century) and the unstable, even bloody, European political background of that century, it becomes clear that Baroque was an outlet for the nobility. The classicalism that reigned at that time was too much in the making of society, and he wanted to breathe freely. Italy was the first to take such liberties.

    It began spreading the style, but it took root and reached unprecedented reincarnation and flourishing already in France, especially during the reign of the "sunny" King Louis XIV.

    Cosmetic was irreplaceable. The style of baroque in makeup was characterized by pale powdered faces, supplemented by a piquant spice - a fly on the face.

    Historical style in modern

    Baroque today and Baroque in the past are two practically different styles, but they have preserved the common distinctive features of the historical trend.

    If historical style often turned a woman into a kind of cumbersome, voluminous creation, then modern, on the contrary, seeks to emphasize in women femininity and beauty of natural lines. But, what really both are similar, is the quality and high cost of the materials and fabrics used.
    Now this style is most often associated with the tandem of couturier Dolce-Gabbana.

    To form an ideal image within the requirements of the current Baroque, it is necessary to clearly define the purpose of this image: for what place it is needed, for what reason.

    Most often the evening image of the Baroque implies a dress as the basis of the ensemble. But in recent years, designers have diluted it with elegant costumes. Hair in this image should be collected in a modest hairstyle and decorated with indiscreet accessories. Dissolute them can be left only under the condition that each hair will be smoothed. Make-up can choose a classic evening with an emphasis on the lips.
