Be a Golden Girl

A few weeks ago, I raved about the wonders of gold makeup and how it can give you an instant glow during the winter season. Just like gold makeup, gold clothing can have the same effect, warming up the look of the skin with its metallic hue, while making sure you are the center of attention.

The trick is to not go so overboard that people can see you shimmering towards them from miles away. Too much of a good thing can make you a fashion don’t. When wearing a gold dress, skip the gold shoes and opt for something a little less flashy. Emma Watson (left) paired her gold Burberry minidress with sexy black platforms.

Similarly, if you choose to wear gold shoes or carry a clutch, pair it with a solid colored outfit. You don not want to outshine the sun, but you do want to be the reason a room shines.
