It takes a lot of confidence to wear a gold outfit, and even more if we are talking about sequins or embroidering. Sequins are the ultimate “look at me” trend and are perfect for wearing to parties or special occasions; on the other hand, embroidery got that vintage-love touch capable to raise your style to the top.
No matter what you pair, a gold piece is a show-stopper so let it shine and don’t pair it with other items that fight for attention. It’s best to keep the rest of your outfit simple and classic.
There are a few practices you should better avoid:
- -Match a gold dress with a big necklace is none a god choice, Keep your evening accessories simple.
- -You should makeup yourself soft and muted. If you wear smoky eye avoid bold lips, and the same back. Wearing heavy -makeup with gold has the same effect as over-accessorizing.
- -Don’t match your outfit with other metallic like pewter, silver or bronze.
Ok let’s see a few examples about how GOLD could rock or day and night.
You can wear during the day a gold top and clutch with skinny jeans. (And a pair of black wedge shoes will be the perfect accessory.) You will look casual but very fashionable.
