Go Gold This Summer: Add the Midas Touch to Your Wardrobe
The metallic trend continues to rule our closet, giving it that glamorous touch. Following this trend, international designers such as Badgley Mischka and Jason Wu have showcased their gold collections. Here’s how you can rock the trend without looking like Bappi-da.
Start Off With Gold Accessories
The easiest way to add gold to your look is by adding accessories. Wear a chunky metallic belt, stacked bangles, a hair accessory, neckpiece or glittery shoes along with a gold clutch. Take your pick of gold accessories, bags and shoes at InOnIt, Fashos and Voylla.
Get Bolder With Prints and Patterns
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, go for dresses, tops or shorts with gold prints. Get this dress in black here for Rs 3,599. You can also check out gold apparel at FabAlley.
Pick From 50 Shades of Gold
Bright gold is not the only colour out there. Choose from shades such as rose, dull, oxidised and gold with silver undertones. We adore the outfits available at Overstock.
Play With Fabrics and Textures
Want to try a head-to-toe gold look like Katrina Kaif or Deepika Padukone? Explore different fabrics such as sequins, satin, brocade and art silk. You can also play around with textures like checks, faux leather and abstract designs. A gold maxi dress or skirt can add a divalicious factor to your closet. Jabong has a great collection of dresses.
How to Wear Gold
a) Pair gold with solid colours. Bling in combination with black, white and other neutral shades tones it down, while still giving you a chic look.
b) Wearing gold is all about the right fit. Opt for either a completely bodycon look or a dramatically oversized one. Get fab metallic clothes at Pernia’s Pop-Shop.
c) For an edgy look, pair your gold clothes with a black leather jacket and spiked boots.
