When Dolce & Gabbana did baroque for winter 2012, everyone sat up and took notice.

In a sea of gaudy floral prints in candy shop shades, D&G's lavish and brooding collection gave us a brief reprieve from the colourful noise.

Sure the print was still busy, but this was an Italian-mama busyness, an ornate and royal look that made us feel glamorous well-bred, and expensive.

Watch out for baroque prints and shapes popping up not just in clothing, but in accessories as well.

Here on the Antipodean shores, a number of designers have taken baroque designs and reworked them into pastel colourways.

Kate Sylvester gives us an elegant peachy number, while Maurie and Eve gave the baroque print a party touch with short hems and zippers.

Classic black and gold baroque is best worn paired with black or white, and accessorised with nothing less than bold gold jewellery.
