Embrace gold fashion trends

For years, silver ruled the accessory world. Whether your cool-hued metallics were the result of platinum, sterling silver, white gold or silver threads and sequins running through your clothes, yellow gold hid in the shadow of silver. Maybe dreams of Olympic medals are on everyone’s minds, but gold has quietly made a comeback. This year gold accessories, clothes and shoes are taking over fashion trends.

Why gold accessories shine

The warmth of gold is a lovely way to brighten your skin. For many skin tones, adding gold earrings or a chunky gold necklace to an outfit is almost like adding a bit of blush. Skin looks warmer, more radiant — and maybe even a little younger!

How to add gold to your wardrobe

Gold jewelry is simple to incorporate into your accessory wardrobe. You can find necklaces from delicate, everyday staples to bold statement necklaces that work for any budget. If you don’t feel like gold flatters your skin, you can still stay on trend. Grab a gold clutch instead of your typical black one. Gold shoes add sparkle to any outfit from a little black cocktail dress to a breezy maxi dress — we’d rather be walking on the beach than through the snow. Something as simple as adding a gold belt to a dress or cardigan can update your look from traditional to trendy.

Colors that work with gold

Gold stands out against black fabric but works well with neutrals, too. Warm camel shades are enhanced by gold accessories. When pairing gold with colors, look for ones with warm undertones. A perfect color to pair with gold accessories is Pantone’s Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. The rosy tones in the purple shade will look rich, deepening the color and making it even easier to wear. Browse some of our favorite Radiant Orchid fashion finds and choose one to be the perfect canvas for your new gold accessories.

Don’t be afraid to mix metals

Your years of curating the perfect silver accessories weren’t wasted, even with gold returning to the fashion scene. Mix your metals to create accessories all your own. Choose pieces deliberately, like a jumble of gold, silver and copper bangles or thin chain necklaces in various metals and length. Not only will your accessories seem new again, it’s an easy way to stretch your fashion budget.

Do you have more gold or silver in your wardrobe?
