Gleaming Gold Fabrics Take Over The Fall 2016 Runways


While the holiday season is still several weeks away, fashionistas can always illuminate their autumn wardrobes with the perfect dose of sparkle. If you’re bored of neutrals and reluctant to curl up in knits, try slipping into silky golden fabrics instead. This season, shiny metallics officially take home the gold on the runways, and come in first place as sartorial must-haves. For fashionistas who are unsure of how to sport this iridescent trend, here’s how to dazzle in gold all week long.

Casual Chic

For a low key weekend look, draw your sartorial inspiration from the Tibi runway. Step out in a shimmering navy blue and gold blouse, paired with a loose matching skirt. The flowing silhouette of your ensemble helps to keep the style looking chic and wearable. Meanwhile, a pair of ankle boots brings a rebellious edge to your glitzy style.

Work Wear

If you’re wondering how to rock gold in the boardroom, take your cues from the Suno catwalk. Slip into a long-sleeved pleated dress emblazoned with an ethereal print in a celestial golden hue. The look of a preppy collar, cuffed sleeves and dainty accordion pleats bring a finishing touch, while strappy black flats seal the deal.


As day turns into dusk, step out in a sheer black and gold maxi dress (as spotted at Rachel Zoe). See-through panels, contrasting metallic embellishment and a flowing full hem wrap up your style. For a sultry effect, pair a flimsy sheer frock with a lacy black bandeau top and prepare to stun!
