If visions of brocade coats, boots, skirts and dresses are dancing in your head at night, you can thank the runways of Missoni, Dolce and Gabbana, Marchesa and Jason Wu for your sweet fashion-filled dreams.  This fall, designers took page out of the Baroque era and saturated their catwalks with finely woven jacquard coats, overly embellished pencil skirts and metallic laced dresses.  Transitioning from the runway to the red carpet, we’re taking cues from our favorite celebrities, who have been sporting brocade inspired looks all over town.

Starlets donning the trend are showcasing everything from the luxuriously chic head to toe look to the subtle hints of these intricate prints.  For those daring to be drenched in brocade, mimic the stylings of Dakota Fanning, who made quite a statement in her Proenza Schouler jacket and skirt, or Jamie King, who paired her Stella McCartney jacquard blouse with the identical print A-line skirt.

If you want to take a dip into the Baroque trend, but don’t want to overwhelm your closet with loads of luxe prints, opt for classic pieces with a twist, like foil print blazers, textured dresses and patterned shoe boots.  Twilight star Kristen Stewart kept it edgy and cool wearing a Roberto Cavalli pointed blazer over black leather pants, while Dallasdarling Jordana Brewster goes for a ladylike elegance in her peach Dolce and Gabbana ensemble.

For the working girl, choosing a look like Alexa Chung’s, who paired her youthful Christopher Kane dress with a white button down blouse, can easily transform the brocade print from sexy nighttime attire to perfectly office appropriate.

With all these celebs inspiring us to channel the Baroque era style, it’ll be easy to transition from the floral ethereal prints of the summer into the darker, brooding tones of autumn, because brocade is taking a firm hold on our fall wardrobe and we can’t wait!
