Golden Hour

Whether by way of sequins, lurex or lamé, gold is the most opulent and noticeable way to emulate ‘winning’. 

Winning at what, you ask? Winning at life – what else? Gold is all about high-octane glamour and confidence in the vein of Jennifer Lopez and Anne Hathaway. We can’t help but associate gold with being a champion, and what better way to crown yourself  exactly that at the end of 2014?

If there’s one time of year when you’re allowed to go a little OTT and brighten up in the fashion department, it’s the holidays. Going for an LRD is one way to do this.  While head-to-toe gold can be a bit brash, it looks chic with black, navy, and neutrals. Beware of mixing the metallic with primary colours – it will be gaudy. Even if you’re just not the high-octane type, you can infuse your look with a smidgen of sparkle – a sophisticated gold clutch or a statement bangle.

Whether you decide to work a full-length gold gown for a formal party or have one key glittering accessory, don’t go overboard with the rest of your styling, allowing the focus to be on your accolade –  your gold piece.
