Glamorous Gold

The fashionistas have spoken and the verdict is in: this year’s bridesmaid trend colour is GOLD! It was all over the awards carpet this year in all textures and tones: from flashy organza to sequins, and matte tulle. Gold is an original, welcome splash of shine and colour.
Gold actually flatters many skin tones and adds a luminescent touch. It’s an easy to wear colour as an accessory or as a dress. As a dress, gold can be matched with crystal accessories, powerful gem-tones such as emerald and sapphire, and for a very chic look, pairing different metals, such as silver and brass. Shoes best suited for gold are peep-toe or sandals with a shimmery element.
Not all golds are bright and blinding (blindingly beautiful!). Depending on the material, the gold can be less overpowering than one perceives it. On a jersey dress, the gold will appear more matte with a sparkle , whereas chiffon will add the bijoux-blitz factor.
