Golden Goddess, Fall 2012
Move along, silver! Gold tones are back in full force! From actual golden hues, to soft rose gold, there is no denying the fact that this metallic beauty is hugely influencing trends for fall. I've paired together some of my favorite items to show the modern Golden Goddess look for both day and night. Although the tan grecian woman wearing a toga might be the first thing you think of when it comes to a goddess, here are two new ways to rock the trend!
I love mixing rich golden colors, like this a-line skirt from Modcloth, with delicate offwhite pieces. It really helps the golden yellow stand out, without being too overpowering. I found these gorgeous shoes from Seychelles and felt that they would pair perfectly with the outfit, especially for fall! The orange and brown leather are the perfect fall shoe for a California girl, especially since it's still far too hot for boots! Finally, top off the look with a bit of gold accessories, like this Kitsch golden necklace and earring set.
For night it's time to amp up the look and make it a bit more wild! I would leave gold mainly as an accessory color for rings and nails. Don't be worried about mixing the metals either! Yellow gold, rose gold, it's all one happy family. Find a statement dress with a pair of nude heels (since it's fall I went for suede) and you are set for a lovely evening whether it's with friends or a hot date! I adore the wine colored, backless dress I found. Backless dresses steal my heart every time! (Just make sure that you aren't overexposed, it's supposed to be a very classy sexy).
Moral of the story? Golden Goddess is all about accessorizing with sensational gold tones!
How are you working Golden Goddess into your own wardrobe??!
