Go for the Gold!

August 20, 2008

You know it’s almost Fall when the phone book-thick September fashion magazines are on the newsstands. Believe me, I hate giving up my flip flops and simple summer dresses, but it’s always exciting to start thinking about a crispness in the air and beautiful coats. It’s also the right time to look back at the Fall 2008 runway shows that debuted in the spring and see where designers’ collections are leading us. One of the big trends: gold jewelry. 
Designers are heavy into separates for the season, and structured clothing that feels more ‘Mad Men‘ than new millennium. Looking above at the image from Badgley Mischka‘s ready to wear show, you can see that long gold chains are the perfect accent for a skirt suit. Phillip Lim (for his 3.1 label) also used long gold necklaces in a look (below) that was accented with oversized color block accents. 
Gold metallics were not even just in jewelry. At Oscar de la Renta, below, a model owned the runway in a gorgeous gold embossed coat. This continuing trend of metallics in clothing means that gold jewelry will be a perfect compliment come Fall. Luckily, this week’s home page theme is focusing on our huge selection of gold jewelry, from 24-karat to white gold.
