Style Guide: Gilt Trip

Everyone knows that gold is on the rise, but for spring fashion, it’s gone through the roof. Designers are gilding everything, from dresses and tops to bags and shoes, and of course, jewelry is loaded with
anything gilt.

Francesco Scognamiglio’s gold lame pants and printed gold metallic jacket are two of the season’s biggest successes. Elizabeth and James also created a beautiful gold print that is spread throughout their Spring Collection in pants and jackets as well.

Donna Karan New York’s Lucite wedges scream golden girl with gold dripping from the top inside the wedge. And Marchesa’s gold tassel envelope bag is so bright, it’s enough to make Fort Knox a little jealous.

Jimmy Choo’s perforated leather sandals with gold details are a perfect way to add a little bling to your wardrobe, and adding Kelly Wearstler’s brass cuff to match makes the look even more savory for spring.

Other classic gold pieces to add to this trend and make good investments for your fashion future include Cartier’s gold and diamond nail head necklace, David Web’s chevron gold, diamond and black and white enamel ring. Reed Karkoff’s bold gold cuff is also hot enough to melt this metallic trend.
