Twofer Tuesday- Golden Goddess, Fall Trend Alert!

Gold clothing is by no means a new idea for the Fall 2012 season. It was an extremely popular choice for full- length evening gowns in the 1970's, actually. Trends are almost always recycled. However, for this season we see gold clothing in interesting silhouettes like close-fitting low-cut maxi dresses, and in many different shades- from shiny and dramatic, to muted and matte.

On the runway we saw tons of gold for the upcoming season, and all of the looks were dramatic. But for the real girls on the street, we can mix a shiny gold piece with more muted and understated pieces for a fashion-forward, eye-catching, yet completely wearable look. Check out the runway inspiration and real-world affordable gold pieces I've found for you!

  1. Love gold fabrics! Especially in some of the gold Elie Saab gowns. Need more of this trend in menswear =)

    1. I agree completely! I'd love to see some men in gold. Thanks so much for the comment :).

  2. I think we can all use a bit of gold goddessness in our lives, surely! Except maybe those leggings.... but that's just me and my legs :-)
