Gold is a colour that seems to hit all the right notes, all of the time. As a summer trend, the opulent shade is always hot. And — thanks to its party-ready panache — whatever you buy now can be worn again fresh during any party season, from the F1 to X’mas.
Fashion in gold, of course, harks back to the 1970s and the disco era. And the sparkle never loses its shine, as our list of dresses proves. Choosing to wear an outfit in gold says “I look expensive” like nothing else can. But avoid tight, low-cut bodycon styles of liquid gold. While you (well, you girls with magpie-eye tendencies, anyway) might be attracted to the dazzle and flair, that kinda style makes you look more trash than flash.
Instead, opt for shirt dresses and down-to-the-floor maxi gowns. The key to playing with this metallic hue is to go for styles that surprise. Wear our picks to evening cocktail hour, and well beyond.
