Maybe it’s the impending olympics, but gold appears to be a thing right now. Case in point metallic nails are everywhere .. and no one’s complaining. 🙂 Metallics were once a hot pick for winter and restricted to the evening, but that seems to be a thing of the past. Gold can (silver and sequins get their own post 😉 ) effortlessly translate from day to night and how!

1. The trick is to simply treat it as any other solid piece in your wardrobe. Rephrase: Treat it as an other solid piece in your wardrobe albeit with some caution!;)

2. Marry a neutral piece with gold and there.. you don’t look like you belong on a Christmas tree 😛

3. Patterns surprisingly work well with gold, especially stripes or dots! Ensure the patterns are simple and set in a neutral background. 

4. If solid gold is not your thing, pick out a more burnished tone. Something that is mixed with black, so it is duller.

5. Still not sure if you wanna traipse around in gold? think of “gold queen” Anna Dello Russo, take a deep breath, pile on those gold bracelets and start practicing 😉
