Don’t look so gilt-y! This week, Polyvore members have really been going for the gold. We’ve seen the shade popping up everywhere from accessories to casual wear, and it doesn’t look like the trend is disappearing anytime soon, especially since it’s the perfect accent shade for this fall’s rich, moody palette.
But this isn’t your grandmother’s gold; the new ways to wear the hue are sophisticated, edgy, and unexpected. Geometry-inflected pieces like the Oscar de la Renta Cara clutch and Rag & Bone’s chunky Farah sweater have a funky, futuristic edge, while Valentino’s metallic brocade shorts take advantage of this season’s mania for all things baroque. Even lamé, once solely the province of Vegas showgirls, has gotten a gorgeous and ladylike update from Mulberry. Right now, we’ve all got a golden opportunity—so don’t miss out.
