Okay, all together now: Going for Baroque! If it ain’t Baroque, don’t fix it! Two Baroque girls! Baroqueback Mountain!
Now then, if that all seemed a bit over the top, maybe a little too much silly fun, perhaps you have not yet fully embraced the spirit of this spring’s Baroque accessories.
One of the great joys of dressing simply—the exquisite little black dress, the gorgeously tailored trousers paired with (finally, you found it!) the perfect pristine white shirt—is that, right now, in the dead of winter, these austere classics cry out for a little sartorial slap and tickle, a dose of cold water—or champagne!—to counter all that (dare we say it?) boring good taste. (Remember when our old friend Diana Vreeland said, “A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste—it’s hearty, it’s healthy, it’s physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I’m against.”)
So grab that jeweled minaudière! Fear not the spangled stiletto! And if you really want to be the girl everyone talks about on the way home from the party, maybe even toss a golden crown onto your head. Because when our founding fathers abolished the notion of the divine right of kings, what they were really saying was, Everyone is a queen! Even—especially!—you.
Above, some of spring’s best Baroque bonbons.
