Going for Gold

Going for Gold feature

It’s a sporting summer here in Britain and, here at Debenhams, we’re showing our support for Team BG by going for gold – in the fashion stakes at least…

With so many parties to attend throughout the summer months, it’s easy to glitter and do glamour all the way through the season. Who needs a medal, when you’ve got a gorgeous gold gown?

At Debenhams, we have plenty of styles to dazzle from brands such as No. 1 by Jenny Packham and Special Edition for Red Herring – both offering floor length and fabulous, to short and sexy styles at Quiz and Phase Eight. Whichever you prefer – race to Debenhams and snap it up.

When it comes to accessories, golden glamour is breaking all records in the style stakes, with designs from Butterfly by Matthew Williamson and Jonathan Kelsey for Edition flying high on our wish list.

While we may be excited for all the sporting action, we’re definitely more into spectator sport ourselves and would therefore choose to hold a gorgeous clutch over a javelin or shot-put any day of the week. Luckily for us, shot-puts are in short supply at Debenhams, while we can’t quite decide between the gold clutch option from Warehouse or Coast…

If you’re opting to flee the summer of sport and are beach-bound instead, then Lipsy do a range of swimwear sure to out-shine even the sun. Gold and embellished, or in an eye-catching snakeskin pattern… again, we’re quite spoilt for choice. We may not be paying direct attention to our Team GB but, by donning gold, we’re channeling positive thoughts in spirit.

Even with beachwear, accessories can be dazzling; gladiator sandals are all the rage at Nine West, with Beach Collection offering more golden print in the form a zebra beach bag. Looking to reflect the rays? Red Herring is ‘sporting’ a pair of gold aviators in the current collection sure to make you feel, and look, like a winner.

With the British summer sun on its way out (yes, we blinked and missed it too) and Britons themselves disappearing off abroad, you might want to make sure you’re first in the queue, when shopping these golden items.

After all, there are no prizes for second place.
