The IT-it: Going For Gold

One could rationalize that getting dressed during the holidays is just like any other time of year. The only problem is that the generalization is very wrong. Besides the cooler temperatures (in many places), getting dressed during the holiday season always calls for more glitter and sparkle.

Over the span of late-November to early-January, you can get away with almost anything that has glimmer and shine. Hey, is there really anything wrong with stringing yourself with holiday lights? Well, yes. LED is just a little bit over the top but there is nothing wrong with reaching for gold.

Ever since the Met Ball, this past Spring, we have noticed how 'Oscar' gold has become a winning color. When paired with muted tones like army green or khaki, gold offers a relaxed brilliance. Have you noticed how nicely gold jumps off the red carpet. No further commentary necessary!

Below are some of our favorite ways to wear gold this upcoming holiday season:

Equipment black & gold top ($228)
Herve Leger gown ($2390)
Alice & Olivia minidress ($1200)
Jenny Packham gown ($5275)
Gold Converse Chuck Taylor ($95)
Loren Steward 14k gold safety pin earrings ($275)
Stella McCartney gold knit turtleneck ($820)
Prabal Gurung gold sequined tee ($1095)
