How To Wear Gold

One of the biggest trends for the fall season is metallic colors that sparkle. While metallic shades of red, blue and green are beautiful, the look of gold will always be dazzling to and beloved by most, if not all fashionistas. While few people can get away with wearing head to toe gold, everyone can show off this glam color and make it their own. Here are a few tips on how you can wear gold and look brilliant in it.

Chain It Up

Thick gold chains were all over the runways this fall. You can wear one that’s fitted and close to your neck or opt for a longer chain that you can wrap to create a layered look.

Create a beautiful smokey eye makeup look for a night out on the town. Gold eye shadow will look great with any eye and hair color as well as any skin tone. However make sure to try out a few different shades to find the one that best highlights your eyes.

Mix Textures

Mix and match different textures to create a whole lot of eye candy. If you’re wearing a simple black dress try a hammered bracelet to give it dimension. If you’re holding a reptile clutch you may prefer a chunky smooth gold bangle.

Get Rich

While pastel colors look pretty, when accessorized with gold dark colors they look stunning because of the contrast between shiny and dark. Some great fall colors that you can try out with gold are orange, brown, navy and black. This fall, purple and hot pink are worth giving a shot as well.
