The Golden Touch for Fall Dressing

2 Comments 07 September 2009

Gilt is a good thing this fall. Yes metallics are with us again this season. In addition to the metal stud trend is the appearance of warmer shades of gold and bronze.

Metallic leggings are one version of the many styles of skinny leg coverings for fall. We love these Helmut Lang metallic stretch leggings ($275.00 at Saks.com). Go for muted shades of metallic leggings such as bronze of antique gold. Metallic bronze leggings pair nicely with black boots. Lamé fabric is a great way to infuse metallics into your wardrobe with a softer more romantic look. One example is this Milly dress made of silk with a botanical print ($415 at Net-a-Porter) .

Gold metallic accessories are eclectic and bold. All of the pieces shown are statement pieces combined or alone. The organic shape of the Emilio Pucci bean-shaped clutch ($1,385 at Net-a-Porter) makes it one of the top obsessions for fall. So unique, it an object that can set the tone of an entire look. Missoni’s square link bracelet is a hybrid of a chain link bracelet and a cuff. Bold and offset with a whimsical tassel, this bracelet will look gorgeous set against either sleeveless black sheath or black cashmere turtleneck. Oscar de la Renta’s grommet platform sandal’s elasticized straps are a bold contrast of black and gold with a dramatic contemporary design ($675.00 at Neimanmarcus.com).

Top off your metallic look with a subtle hint of metallic eyeshadow such as Bobbi Brown’s metallic long wear cream eyeshadow ($22 at shop.nordstrom.com)

    For the more cost-conscious, H&M (of course) has metallic gold leggings costing $25, at least at the San Francisco store. I love them with a black micro-mini and sparkly top, or a tunic / long top, or for a more informal “rock&roll” look, under well-torn jeans (check the back of your boyfriend’s closet).

    Those platform sandals are gorgeous, I’m in love! I wish I could afford $675 shoes!
