As you’ve been flipping through your favorite monthly fashion magazines, you’ve probably noticed one big trend popping up again and again: neo-baroque. Embroidered dresses, lavishly embellished jackets, and ornate jewelry are splashed all across the winter fashion scene, and for good reason; this trend is all about embracing the ultra-luxe and having fun while doing so!
The neo-baroque trend looks great with luxe, oversize gold jewelry: think statement pendant necklaces, oversize triple drop earrings, and gem-heavy cuff bracelets. This season we’re seeing the trend done to excess, so don’t be afraid to pile on glitzy gems over an elaborate outfit. The more over-the-top, the better.
One of your smartest neo-baroque jewelry buys this season is a heavy pendant necklace with oversized stones, like Zariin’s NPS114M, which features a thick gold link chain (also very trendy this season) and a large cluster of multi-colored rough stones around an orange agate pendant. Wear a piece like this over a very luxe neo-baroque top or dress, or use it to add a touch of the trend to a plain top or dress.
If you prefer earrings, try Zariin’s ‘Beauty Mantra’ gold earrings, with a triple drop of red quartz, labradorite, and carnelian. Again, while these earrings would make a striking companion to a lavishly embellished outfit, they’re also versatile enough to dress up a plain tee and blazer in your wardrobe. And once you’re ready to move on to another trend, the classic design will enable them to transition easily to a new set of outfits.
Founded in 2010 by sisters Mamta and Vidhi Gupta, Zariin jewelry has quickly become one of the most coveted jewelry brands in the fashion world, receiving rave reviews from Harper’s Bazaar magazine and being featured at the 2012 Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai, India. Zariin’s bold designs fuse contemporary style and feminine aesthetics with bold colors and raw, uncut stones for a truly unique collection of bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and cocktail rings. Named one of the top three must-have Indian jewelry brands by Harper’s Bazaar, Zariin now sells worldwide at high-end boutiques like Anthropologie and through zariin.com.
