5 Stunning Ways to Go Golden for Holiday Parties

Gold is the color of luxury and also a symbol for wealth. Gold colors can highlight your cheekbones and your body. Although some people think the color gold drowns out their skin color, or only works well with certain skin-types, I promise someone has made a shade of gold that will work for your skin tone. If you don’t trust wearing gold colors, then give gold a whirl with your accessories!

My first feature is a paisley design. Paisley is still hot and it looks beautiful with this tall skirt. Plus, the stretchy material and gorgeous pattern makes this an unbeatable option. The color scheme is stunning and seductive, which makes it a perfect holiday accessory. Whether you wear this over leggings or just as is, it’s a great way to enter a room.

Do you remember the Oscar-looking dress I featured a couple weeks ago? This next showcase is similar, but a bit different. This floor-length jaw dropper is a powerful way to make the grandest entrance. The discreet design, shimmer, shine, and gold color all combine to make this a very appealing dress. Although you can’t show off your skin while wearing it, this dress still allows you to show off all your assets in major classic, yet fun style.

Ordinarily I advise people to keep their toes warm during the colder months, but don’t forget to let those little guys come out of hiding for the occasional special evening event. There is no better way to let those toes come out of hiding than with some glam stilettos that embrace your ankles like a pencil skirt embraces curves.

Up next is a golden studded suede bracelet. Try staying that five times in a row… It’s a sassy bracelet that will keep your accessories above the rest. It’s stylish and easy to slip on, and the suede gives this bracelet an edge. I love the combination of texture with the punky studs.

Now some of you may think this next feature is outdated, but I don’t. I think with the right outfit and flair you can rock this any year. Although I believe designers killed bib necklaces last year, I also believe this one is too cool to pass up. It is beaded, studded, a hot mess, and I want it. Try wearing this over an old sweater with a seriously cut blazer or whatever your heart desires, because I promise your neck will take a liking to this bib.
