I appreciate Balmain’s baroque inspiration- done right, this oppulent style can find its way in my wardrobe. An embroidered velvet jacket… Dream! If you know what I mean.
That said, you can do baroque badly and cheap. This girl took dramatic florals, the sort you would encounter on vintage drapes, and wore them with fuchsia sneakers, black tote and pigtails.
Yes, pigtails. A sort of “not just a girl, not yet a woman” combo. A mess from head to toe, if you agree.
Wouldn’t it have been better if she paired it with ankle boots, a satchel bag and a braided side tail?
