Subject: Gold details for fall
If you’re anything like me, then you’re probably just as excited as I am about all the little details you can add to your look this fall. My detail of choice this season, gold accents. That’s right! Good old fashioned solid gold! From jewelry, to jackets, and more, I cannot get enough of the warm tone of the beautifully colored precious metal this season. Because gold has such a warm undertone on every skin tone, it, in my opinion, is an ideal color to pair with your favorite looks this time of year.
I’m also opting for creams and prints to off set my gold details. I think the two classic colors paired together create a very clean and classic look for fall. This is certainly the season for doubling your prints and layering with perfection, so make sure you add small touches of gold and other clean neural colors to keep your look balanced.
Let your accessories make a statement this fall. Don’t be shy with those fabulous shoes and handbags. Quality shoes and handbags are the pieces that will help your look stand out. Styling quality or high end designer handbags and shoes with some of your favorite pieces, will give you that expensive chic touch you need to create that ultra rich look every fashionista aims for during the fall/winter season. Fall is definitely the best time of year to add unique touches of luxury to your style!
Whoever said light colors were only meant to be worn in the spring and summer are clearly living in the 1950’s. It’s a great idea to pair your favorite cream blouse and bag with a pair of your favorite dark denim pants and great chunky sweaters or blazers. As you can see, even some of your favorite celebrity fashionistas are opting for softer and lighter colors this season. Cream, pale pink, and light gray are just a few examples of some of the lighter colors trending this fall.
This year during New York and Paris Fashion Week we saw in almost every designers fall/winter collection showcased, prints, patterns, and textures. So clearly, they aren’t going anywhere, any time soon. So pull out those animal print jackets and floral printed pants from last season and feel free to have a field day, I know I will!
