Gold: How to Shine in Style
Gold is a color that exudes opulence and contributes sophistication to an outfit. Whether its packaged through jewelry, a handbag or a piece of clothing, a touch of gold can instill elegance without being ostentatious.
As with any prominent color or print, to maximize its impact and make a fashionable yet classic statement, less is more. Otherwise, an abundance of gold can easily cross the line over to Vegas showgirl.
Featured above is a casual everyday look that gets a much needed lift with subtle touches of gold and turns it into a memorable yet very wearable outfit. What I love most about it, is that you don't need to layer on several pieces to make a statement. It's all about choosing the right parts -- a blouse, pair of shoes, bag, that may seem understated but when brought together create a fashionable impact.
Emma Cook's Owl Silk Top ($460) is bold with an oversized owl and intense eyes. Paired with slim fitting black Levi's Made & Crafted ($185), it may seem natural to throw on a pair of black heels to keep with the outfit's color palette, however, adding a pair of muted gold heels like Elie Tahari's Tonie Lace Bootie ($498) draws out the colors found in Cook's Owl Top and allows the you to easily incorporate other colors, rather than sticking with black. Shaesby's Geometric Gold Earrings ($265) are simple yet inject interest while Lanvin's Happy Shoulder Bag ($2,110) nicely complete the look.
