Gold is the decadent, luxurious shade in high demand as a serious fashion trend for Spring 2016. Metallics have been hot for a while, but gold had off late lost its fervour. But its back now and how! It makes a strong statement, and leaves no doubts about breaking the bank.
Whether seen in a shiny gold leather jacket, a slinky gold gown, or a mini beaded dress in gold sequins, designers couldn’t get enough of the rare metal.
Seen mostly at dressy affairs, the material screams modern elegance, but can be paired with a little denim for a hip contrast. The 2016 Golden Globe Awards red carpet had the best gowns we’ve ever seen. The high-shine color gold was much more subdued than seasons past, but each dress was so ridiculously sleek and polished.
What to wear it with
The spring collections showed that gold in both big and small doses transcends season and the time of day. Better yet, when paired with austere hues like army green or khaki, the shades becomes even more brilliant.
As a color it goes with every thing that reflects light but creates the maximum drama when paired with black.
