With summer quickly coming to an end and the fall months soon approaching, it is now time to dive into the back of our closets and to start to bring out some of our highly coveted fall pieces. All Fashionistas/os want to walk into their first class of the year with a great sense of confidence and that self-assurance all starts with the outfit we choose that morning. The pairing of black and gold has always been seen in great array on the runway and is simply a classic choice. This Fashionista follows in suit, with a back-to-school ready ensemble, choosing to rock a black top and black, fitted skinny jeans with beautifully accessorized gold pieces.
This look is very polished and clean, yet chic at the same time. It hinges on the more casual side and is appropriate to wear to class, yet could also be worn to a casual dinner date with the girls. Her perfectly tailored black skinny jeans add a bit of formalness to her look and their fitted nature complements her loose black top.
With the simplicity of her all black ensemble, it is her gold jewelry that completes and brings together this Fashionista’s look. She dons gold jewelry from head to toe with a layering of gold pendants, a gold cuff bracelet and small, gold dangling earrings. Each of these pieces of jewelry do not overwhelm the other, which is something very important to keep in mind when choosing the right accessories for a look. This Fashionista also chooses to pair sandy leather sandals (really bringing out the ardent pinkish color of her pedicure), which pair perfectly with the warmness of her gold accessories. She also chooses a bright magenta for her lipstick color, which brings a boldness to her look, in the same fashion that her gold accessories do next to her black blouse.
As we now make the transition from summer to fall, choose the statement color pairing of black and gold in your ensemble. There are so many different gold hues to choose, from glossy to dull, and can be used in any Fashionista’s jewelry, headbands, handbags, belts, shoes or even in makeup and nail polish. Fall in love with gold this fall season!
