Baroque for 2013 is a sleeker, lighter, and more modern look than what you wore for your Christmas festivities. And, there are simple and inexpensive ways for all of us to get a touch of Baroque without storming the castle keep to loot the gold supply. Just, pick up some embellished items from time to time whenever you see them on sale. Look for easy-to-wear things like these:

A Black and Gold Purse:

It's easy to add a little pop of Baroque (or Rococo) whatever you want to call it... it's pretty much the same unless you want to get into a technical debate with some intellectual wonk. Modern culture uses the two words interchangably... anyway, if you add a black and gold purse to one of your chic, but dull, black outfits in your closet, you'll be way ahead of most Boomer Chicks when it comes to style.

It's interesting how a few small details can trigger the image of "Baroqueness" in the minds of so many people. Is it because we've seen these types of images in movies. Is it from our ideas about Marie Antoinette and Versailles?

An Ornate Golden Bib:

This type of inexpensive little neckpiece can be used to transform all kinds of outfits. Wear this baby with a plain white top or a silky black dress, and add a purse like the one above for an easy, happy change of pace. A bit of embellished "bling" like this will transform your work outfit (and you) into something fun and witty.

I don't know. Is it just me? Or, do you get tired of wearing the same old provincial clothing as every other woman in the neighborhood? I say, "Burn that tired old jogging suit. Slap that baseball cap off your husband's head. It's time to get some tickets to see Santana in Vegas and rock it up and live it up and dress it up."

Okay, get your notebooks out, because it's time to get back to our art history lecture. No matter how many times you look at those Dolce & Gabbana models posing on the catwalk, black velvets and gold swirls aren't the only beautiful images to come out of the Baroque period. (Article continues.)
