While metallics were seen in many colors including the icy pale ones, gold was a major trend on the runways. Gold details were seen on fabrics from brocades, velvets, leather and animal skin to satin and silk. They were spotted in the form of paillettes, beading, sequins, spikes, pleats, drapes, 20s and baroque motifs, chains, links, gilded finishes, embroidered details, embossed effects, spray painted feathers, shiny high-finish metallic effects, fluid liquid effects, gem stones and shimmery threads. Metallic gold colors were spotted on bow hairbands, embossed floral sunglasses, star hair clips, brooches, sleek neck cuffs, bobby pins, belt buckles and other pieces. From rose gold and olive gold to yellow gold, there were many tones of gold to choose from. You can always add a few accent pieces to your winter wardrobe if the thought of adding too much gold scares you.

Would you add gold to your winter wardrobe?  Which was your favorite gold piece from the fall runways?  

Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.

    Gold, always thought of together with luxury. these are beautiful images. I like it with white for the summer, and with some black and more baroque designs for winter!
    Happy week.

      We do have similar taste. Seems like you are one of my pinterest soul mates 🙂 I love black and gold for winter but some of the white and gold pieces in Alexandre Vauthier and Paco Rabanne were gorgeous.

    I definately would add gold to my wardrobe for this winter,it looks so luxe,elegant and glam,I personally love to combination and contrast of black and gold! my fave.
    I love all the stunning designers you have picked out,hard to pick a favourite as I love them all,and fond them so inspiring. Dolce&Gabbana are one of my most favourite designers,always has a essence of glam and sex appeal. But I have to say that gold cardigan (I think is a cardigan) by Ralph Lauren is beautiful.
    Fab post and thanks so much for your lovely comment,hope you have a wonderful day x

      The gold cardigan was one of my favorites from the Ralph Lauren collection too. It is gorgeous. 🙂

    I love the way women have changed the code of fashion over the past few years–it’s now cool to wear metallics both day and night now. Albeit, I like to do this in small doses . . .

    • August 15, 2012 at 10:36 pm

      So agree on that! It’s interesting to see this color used in day time looks. I like it small doses too. Same with animal prints. I was never a gold person but they do go well with all the fall looks. 🙂

    I love metallics for their sparkle and I consider them to be a neutral of sorts. I’m definitely looking forward to incorporating this trend into my fall wardrobe.
