Despite current economic reports of dread, Fall 2010 will bring fashion dripping in gold. With shimmering possibilities from shirt to shoe, you may find yourself pondering the title of “Queen Midas”.
While this may seem a familiar choice, I would be completely remiss if I did not mention Christian Louboutin’s gold-studded bootie. The body of the shoe is covered in round studs and spikes, all in amazingly shiny gold. As if this were not enough, the heel exudes such brilliance that eye protection may become necessary in looking upon this beautiful shoe.
Speaking of shades, if the eyes must be protected, golden accents will flatter like no other. The average gold-rimmed sunglasses can be found anywhere from bargain outlet to high-end boutique. However, you will have a much more shining effect in shades like these from Chinese designer, Zhu Fei. The very definition of unique, these glasses feature delicate nature inspired cut-outs in brilliant gold. Whether you can actually see much is another story, but the look itself is utterly amazing.
Shoes and accessories aside, a true necessity for any golden queen involves a beautiful frock complete with gold beading. This off-the-shoulder number from Herve Leger adds gold and black beading to the famous bandage dress, creating dazzle that is fit for royalty.
This fall, do not be afraid to unleash your inner queen on a drab world. All of that shine may just do some good for humanity, let alone your wardrobe.
