Take some advice from Miss Jill Scott and ‘live your life like it’s golden’… literally! Gold is THE trend to wear this autumn, bringing out the beautiful warm glow of our Island skin! Gold was hot on the catwalks of Milan, Paris and London, with shimmery sequins, detailed prints and embellishments, and a glittery, metallic sheen all round.
Favourite picks from Fall 2012:
It’s all about sexy and slinky gold dresses, bangin’ gold jewellery, stand-out accessories and of course blingin’ nails. Rihanna literally had gold on her nails at the Grammy Awards, courtesy of a limited edition of ‘Amor 24′ nail polish. The polish is made of 24-karat gold and retails at a whopping $5000!
The ultimate golden goddess is Beyonce, who consistently and flawlessly pulls the trend off with class! Take note from B and keep hairstyles and accessories simple, to draw attention to the golden centrepiece!
Stacks of gold jewellery is a hot trend to try to bring alive an otherwise plain outfit. Layer gold necklaces and bangles with a heavy piece of jewellery such as a cocktail ring or thick gold chain. M.I.A. and Santigold are the go to girls with this trend, mixing heavy accessories with quirky clothing and make-up.
