Wednesday's Look for Less: The Baroque Dress

The brocades and opulent embellishments of this season fall under the veil of one big trend, the Baroque movement. It's always nice as the holidays approach to sling a little bling to punch up your everyday look. If you intend to indulge in this year's baroquialisms, then just know that you have lots of options when it comes to your budget. 

The two dresses below represent this trend perfectly but are at two very ends of the price spectrum. Which one do you think is the splurge and which the save? 

The dress on the right is a Topshop bargain that rings up at only $72! The very similar piece on the left is by Clover Canyon and costs almost $250. The great thing about the Baroque trend is that you can wear the patterns at any age- a young gal might pull on her moto boots and a parka with a dress like this while the more mature would veer toward black hosiery and patent leather pointed toe heels. For that reason, it could be worth investing a bit more in a Baroque piece as you'll be sure to love it in years to come. But if this look is purely experimental for you and you're not 100% sold, then save on this one. Maybe in a few years you can really go for Baroque...
