Gold Fashion for Summer

Metallics have been seen all over the Spring Summer 2017 runways, so it only makes sense to try to embrace this show-stopping trend. When it comes to the metallic shades, nothing quite beats a glamorous gold for the summer months, so here are a few pieces that you could invest in.

Pleated Gold Midi Skirt
Although the summer months may be warm enough to bare more skin than usual, there are always those occasions when you do not want to flash quite so much leg, making a midi skirt a great way to go. The pleated gold midi skirt from Zara is made from a frayed metallic fabric, giving it an edgy, down-to-earth vibe, but it still swings and flows in a way that is delightfully feminine.

Gold Loafers
Traditional loafers are a classic, and are being seen just about everywhere this summer. While your go-to black loafers may be looking slightly tired, a pair of metallic gold loafers, such as the style from Tod’s, will never fail to brighten up your day. Whether you wear them with cropped denim jeans or dark workwear, gold loafers will add a slightly futuristic edge to any outfit.

Gold Sandals
For those who are still not quite sold on the idea of wearing gold, trying this trend out with a pair of understated gold sandals is a great way to get your feet wet. Marc Jacobs has a pair that is perfect for this, as they are made from a cracked metallic leather and feature a covered heel and a buckled ankle strap, making them casual and perfect for lazy summer days.

Gold Swimwear
If you have been wanting to buy a new swimsuit for this summer, try on a few gold swimsuits and see how much the color flatters your skin tone. Gold works with just about every skin color out there, making a gold swimsuit the perfect way to stand out on the beach this summer. From Melissa Odabash to Topshop to Martha Medeiros, there are so many brands out there that have their own stunning version of a gold swimsuit, so do explore all of the options.

Sequins and Crystals
With everything from sequins and crystals to beads and Art Deco motifs, the gold Patty Silk Chiffon Mini Dress from Alice and Olivia is perfectly suited for the summer. The dress boasts a plunging neckline and a flared silhouette, and would work well when paired with a clutch bag and some strappy summer sandals.

Rose Gold
If the idea of gold is still too bold for you, give rose gold a try instead. With its pinkish hue, rose gold is much more subtle, but just as on-trend. For a rose-gold dress that will soon become your go-to number for special occasions, take a look at Herve Leger, who have a figure-hugging metallic gold bandage dress that will beautifully accentuate your shape.

The subtle shimmer that metallic shades give to your outfit are enhanced even more by the bright summer light, making this the perfect trend for the summer months. Whether you opt for gold shoes or a gold skirt, these are some of the gold must-haves for your wardrobe this summer.

Five Must-Have Memorial Day Fashion Picks

Memorial day

Memorial day is just around the corner, along with the three-day weekend that this brings. No matter what your plans for the holiday may be, here are five must-have fashion picks that promise to inject a dose of serious style into your weekend.

Maxi dress

A Printed Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are always a go-to item in the spring and summer months and are able to flatter just about every body shape. While there is nothing wrong with choosing a dress in a solid color, a bold print will never fail to brighten up your day, while giving your outfit a strong focal point. Try to find a dress that is made from a lightweight material, with comfortable and secure straps and sleeves, as this makes it more versatile, and means that you will not have to worry about accidentally showing too much skin if there is a breeze in the air.

A Wide-Legged Jumpsuit
A wide-legged jumpsuit, in a neutral color, is a great piece to have for Memorial Day, as it can easily be taken from day into night. Whether you dress it down with some flip flops and daytime accessories or dress it up with a pair of stylish heels, this is a garment that will give you plenty of freedom to move around in, making it perfect for everything from a day of sightseeing to a night of dancing.

Sandals

Comfortable Sandals
No matter what you may have planned for the weekend, it is likely that there will be quite a bit of walking involved, which is why your footwear needs to be comfortable yet fashionable at the same time. Sandals are ideal for the warmer weather, but, if you plan on spending your weekend around the beach or pool, make sure that they can hold up to the water. A low heel, as well as good arch support and a cushioned footbed, may be necessary if you plan on staying active, so make sure that you take all of your plans into consideration before choosing a style.

A Chambray Button Down Shirt
If the weather forecast for Memorial Day weekend is warm and humid, then you will likely not need a jacket or sweatshirt. Instead, opt for a chambray button-down shirt, as this can be worn on its own, or as outerwear to give you a bit of extra coverage and warmth.

Woman with backpack

A Leather Backpack
Backpacks are bang on trend for this season, and, unlike many of the other accessory trends you have likely experienced, this one is extremely practical too. Rather than opting for a cool tote to cart your belongings around in this Memorial Day, go for a chic and durable leather backpack instead.

Long weekends do not come around very often, so you are likely to want to enjoy your time rather than worrying about what to wear. By planning all of your Memorial Day outfits in advance, you will be all set when the weekend arrives to simply kick back, unwind, and make the most of the three days.

The Cutest Fancy Sandals for Your Hawaii Vacation – OROGOLD Reviews

With the intense heat that you will experience in Hawaii, it is important to give your feet the opportunity to breathe. OROGOLD reviews the cutest fancy sandals for your vacation in Hawaii.

The Cutest Fancy Sandals for Your Hawaii Vacation

Metallic Leather Sandals
Opting for a metallic leather is a great way to jazz up a pair of flat sandals that would have otherwise been slightly boring, and will add a touch of glamour to even the most casual of looks. OROGOLD loves the Raffia Horsebit Espadrille from Gucci, in a metallic gold, with a braided cord base and a horsebit detailed strap, adding a slightly sporty edge. If you would prefer slightly more height, Gucci also have a pair of metallic silver sandals with a wide, one-inch heel, featuring Swarovski crystals to give you that extra bit of sparkle.

Floral Wedges
Wedges are the best type of heel to wear during the day when you are on vacation, as they give you the most support and, unlike thin heels, will even allow you to walk on sand, something which is inevitable in Hawaii! OROGOLD absolutely adores the range of printed brocade wedge sandals from Dolce & Gabbana, and there is an amazing range of floral prints to choose from. Charlotte Olympia also have a pair of printed floral wedges, with a print that is even more abstract and fascinating to look at. For something slightly more toned down, take a look at the Alice + Olivia espadrille wedge sandals, which feature a more subtle, color block print, and are available at Bloomingdales, either online or in store.

Crystal-Embellished Sandals
Crystal embellishments are always cute to wear, and when you’re somewhere as sunny as Hawaii, your sandals look extra special when the crystals glitter with light from the sun. OROGOLD loves the Rene Caovilla snakeskin sandals, embellished with Swarovski crystals. Snakeskin is very much in trend when it comes to sandals, and you are likely to see snakeskin in every shoe shop. Rene Caovilla have a whole range of jeweled sandals that are worth checking out if you like their style. Dolce & Gabbana also have a printed pair of embellished flat sandals that would really stand out on the beach, and reflect the bright colors of the Aloha state.

Floral Design Sandals
For flat sandals that have flowers winding their way over your feet, take a look at the Rosario sandals from Charlotte Olympia, crafted from a green calf leather that will stand out against all skin tones. The pink flowers add a delicate and feminine touch, and are a great choice for somewhere like Hawaii. As great as flat sandals may be for the day, Hawaii is full of entertaining night spots, and you are likely to want some fancy sandals for a night on the town. OROGOLD recommends the climbing rose sandals from Dolce & Gabbana, which features a four-inch stiletto heel with a rose climbing its way up.

No matter how long you visit Hawaii for, you are bound to be kept busy by all that the state has to offer. These cute sandals will help to pull any outfit together, making packing for your vacation much easier!
