AW12 Trend Report: How to Win When Wearing Gold
We’re only interested in one colour today here at My Style Companion, and that’s GOLD! Yes today Team GB have won their first gold medal thanks to rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning. Well done girls – we knew you could do it!!! Go Team GB!!
So we’re having our own little celebration in honour of London 2012′s first GB win with our top gold fashion picks and advice on how to wear them for AW12.
The Winner’s Dress
The first is a stunning drop dead WOW lamé dress from Rochas, available from online fashion store thecorner.com Nothing more is needed with this dress apart from a stunning pair of heels and a confident Olympian strut. This is a dress for winners!
Rock that Baroque
We are in love with these statement Trinity trousers from Reiss - talk about luxury – a perfect reflection of one of AW12′s decadent fabrics trend. With jaquard trousers as bold as this you want to keep the rest of the outfit simple and clean so pair with a black or cream silk tee or vest and Chanel style jacket for this season’s take on tailoring with metallics.
The Olympian Hero Jacket
If you’re struggling to stretch to am embellished Balmain jacket this season – a key piece for AW12 then why not try this jaquard gold jacket from ASOS - just pair with a simple pair of skinny jeans to rock baroque!!
In 2012 prints have been huge, and the trend continues in to autumn 2012 with florals and geometric prints all over the catwalks. Go all out by wearing prints head to toe with a patterned suit. If you’re not feeling as daring choose a jumper or tee featuring a print you like and pair with jeans and a leather jacket for an effortless weekend look, such as this gorgeous gold Peter Pilotto jumper from Selfridges.
Best foot forward
If you’re a girl who likes her flats these classic Tory Burch Reva ballet pumps in gold from Shopbop.com go with just about everything – and comfortable to boot! But if you want to update your wardrobe with the seasons must have boot – the chunky boot, paired with a skirt and bomber jacket as seen at Proenza Schouler – these Dune Pekas boots may be the way to go for a winning outfit.
