Metallics, embroidery, brocade, bedazzlings; the Fall/Winter 2012 runway lustered with rich, ornate looks from designers like Ralph LaurenDolce and Gabbana, and Oscar de la Renta among many others. To rock the modern take on Victorian inspired fashion this season, look for pieces with intricate embroidery in the form of gold lace detailing, shining hardware adornment or jeweled and sequined decoration. To ease into the trend, try an embellished collar necklace, sure to add the perfect glistening trim to everything from your basic sweater to LBD. Work up to a full-on embellished ensemble, pairing a brocade dress under an studded cropped jacket in a complimentary shade. Don't be hesitant to go over with the ornamentation; there's no room for subtleties in this trend.
