Cool-Girl Gone Baroque: Asos Channels Opulence With Statement Prints and Texture For Fall '12
If Marie Antoinette lived today, we suspect Asos's Fall '12 collection would be her go-to wardrobe source. With an eye for trends that's made Asos a go-to shopping destination, the brand zeroed in on some of Fall's key pieces, albeit with a decidedly decadent slant. Rich and colorful textures were utilized on pieces ranging from outerwear to party skirts, and there were also the cooler fare via playful patents and slick leather skirts, dresses, pants, and shirts. Sequins and sparkle also had their moment as the collection veered toward a girlier, more playful side in floral-sequined trousers and a pair of gold hot pants. The details also reflected fun Baroque-era references in velvet heels and a glitzy pair of drop earrings, then in tougher pieces with lug-sole boots and a camouflaged knapsack. Wallflowers, be warned: this collection was made to make a statement — even the classic button-down is finished in patent. Click on for a taste of Asos's ultravibrant, totally opulent Fall '12 collection.
