Gold is the metallic shade of the season as witnessed everywhere from YSL to Christian Dior. It’s never too early to start thinking about all those fabulous parties you’ll be invited to this upcoming holiday season so start planning now so you’ll know exactly what to wear. Make sure to choose slightly muted gold tones to avoid looking like a giant Christmas decoration.
This strapless party dress by Adrianna Papell isn’t overly flash and is perfect for that first date at a fancy restaurant or intimate cocktail party. It has ornate caviar beading embellishments and a removable metallic ribbon to tie at the waist, or if you’re well endowed, just under the bust. Available from Nordstrom for $158.
If you want something a little less feminine and flirty, and a little more edgy, check out this Jacquard Shift Dress by Hamish Morrow. This peach and gold silk blend jacquard hits just below the knee. Wear with leggings and black long sleeves as shown here or wear on its own and tie a black satin sash around the waist to give it a bit of shape. This is perfect for those with a boyish figure and is similar to the YSL dress – sans bow of course – as above. Finish the look off with a belted trench coat, styled to perfection to reveal just a hint of metallic peeping through. Available from Net-a-Porter for Â£423.83.
For those in a sexy mood and killer legs, this Sophie 3/4 Sleeve dress by Foley for Foley + Corinna is a must buy.

Girls with curves and a bust to boot should showoff in this backless number by Massimo Danieli. This figure hugging dress is sure to dazzle at even the glitziest cocktail party. Available from Yoox for $276.12.
