Create Your Own Black Gold Magic


December is the month of celebrations; and actress Bipasha Basu, who is also the face of a newly launched fashion and style portal, believes that the look for the season is black and gold.  A black and gold glitter clutch in hand, a gold cuff and wedges in place—the actress is ready to party.

Black is hot. So is gold. And together they make a deadly combination. Gone are those days when gold was the star attraction of only expensive weddings. Don’t be mistaken; it still is. However, nowadays gold is creating its own niche in the world of fashion. Celebrities and models are teaming gold jewellery with western outfits to create quirky combinations and set off new fashion trends.

Team an LBD with some chunky gold pieces and voila, you are the star of the party. Be it a simple gold necklace or a heavy embroider piece, gold jewellery, in all in its size and shapes, can add to the beauty of a black dress. For a night out to a club with friends, bring together chunky gold bracelets and a black maxi dress to get the perfect look. On that note, here’s a tip from the experts—the more the better!

An elegant black evening gown teamed up with exquisite gold jewellery or a pair of black and gold wedges is guaranteed to make heads turn at any dinner party.

Gold jewellery, against the backdrop of a simple black dress, helps to build a mysterious and classy image of the person wearing it. Throw in a funky gold clutch, gold embellished high heels and neutral makeup, and the look is complete.

Some words of advice while experimenting with gold jewellery:

  • Let the gold pieces be the highlight of the day. Keep the dress simple so that it does not take away the attention from the jewellery.
  • If you are opting for lesser jewellery, team the black dress with sleek black pumps with gold-tipped pointed toes to keep the gold quotient intact. A minaudiere made of black and gold is a must-have accessory.

The perfect look never comes easy. The idea is to keep trying with different combinations. So, wait no more. Go, shine!
