I have never really been a fan of gold-toned accessories. I used to think that it looked gaudy therefore I tried to avoid wearing gold jewelry or, God forbid, gold-toned clothing; and for some reason, I find the trend a bit too 80s for my taste.
Until recently. Suddenly, I'm so into gold accessories and clothing and not just because there were quite a number of gold pieces that recently made an appearance on the runway. My falling in love with the trend happened way before that. I just never got around to actually acquiring some accessories (you know, the faux gold ones), but maybe this time I'll put it high up on my never-ending list of things to have. Especially the long gold chain necklace I saw from Aldo (I'm still kicking myself for not snapping that one up when I had the chance. And no, it's not on the site either which is a bummer).
But just because I developed a sudden love (or obsession?) with gold, does not mean I'm going to go crazy and bedeck myself with all the gold I lay eyes on, like a christmas tree. Of course not. I still find it quite a tricky trend to pull off, but I guess in moderation, it's possible to look classy rather than trashy.
If like me, you also want to incorporate gold in your outfit, but don't want to overdo it, you can try the subtle approach by adding touches of gold-toned accessories with neutral colors (which is the safest way). Of course sometimes it's also good to throw caution to the wind and just have fun with it.
