ACCESSORIES REPORT: Classic Black And Gold

Accessories Report

Black and gold—two of the most timeless colors on the color wheel and probably two of the most flattering colors on anyone. This Fashionista wears her cutout black maxi dress with the two simplest, yet chic accessories that keep this daring look casual. Black and gold rimmed aviators make her look beachy yet sophisticated and ready to embrace the California sun while running errands on a lazy summer day. The black and gold wallet is not only cute but also practical. She uses the wallet to store her phone and a couple of things that every Fashionista/o needs in a wallet. It’s convenient because she can slip her keys onto the wallet and take it anywhere she goes when she’s in a hurry and doesn’t have time to pick out a cute bag.

Only in California would I see someone wear something so edgy and have the ability to make it so casual. This is an outfit far from what you’d typically see on the East Coast, where running errands would require boat shoes, chino shorts and a blouse. But in the Golden State, fashion veers far from preppy, even though aviators have become a universal fashion accessory. Street style doesn’t have to always involve looking comfortable though. This Fashionista says this is her favorite outfit to run errands in because she doesn’t have to worry about too many pieces, even though the dress looks much fancier.

Sometimes, all you need to dress down an outfit are simple accessories. To make this outfit more upscale, try adding some gold cuffs like these from ASOS, and some nude sandals.
