    AWARD SEASONS- GOLD FEVER

    29 January 2020

    Milan,

    By Franco Lorenzon @nonsololook

    Party coming up? Gold fever is "rising", the most contagious trend that makes any outfit shine. Many designers have come up with proposals, and all of them agree that everything should be gold... what shines. In the evening, make a sparkle and treat yourself to the sunniest of metallic shades: aim for GOLD. 

    THE SEQUINED DRESS AND THE PLEATED SKIRT

    Everyone loves them all; if it's a festive occasion, the gold sequins become the choice even for those who have them in their wardrobe. The highlight? The dress is entirely covered by these iridescent little wonders, and their sparkling charm is absolutely irresistible. A great comeback dictated by the latest catwalks, where to look fabulous, it is a must to wear a dress that impresses everyone. The advice is to choose a dressy model. Evaluate carefully according to your physicality, a length: mini, midi or maxi. Undecided about which accessories to wear? There are two main trends; the first involves black bags, shoes and jewellery; the second plays on the total look, from head to toe for a fun and sunny mood. Are you among those who do not like to dare too much? Treat yourself to the contemporary elegance of a gold pleated skirt. Pair it with a black cashmere wolfhound, a bronze and gold velvet corset, or just a beige silk shirt. You'll be equally cool but with that touch of measured elegance that sets you apart. 

    THE EXPERT'S CHOICES

    An A-plus, the mini dress by Elisabetta Franchi, with half-bodice neckline and half long-sleeved shoulder. A rich drape and a drape on the hip create a motif worthy of a star. 

    The pleated maxi skirt by Primark, made of technological fabric, is perfect to give a special twist to any award seasons party.

    WEAR SHOES AND BAGS ONLY IF YOU ARE ON THE RED CARPET

    It's the favourite game of influencer and fashion addicts, to leave everyone amazed with "Wow" effects. Of course, if you don't belong to this crowd of fans of trends and avant-garde styles, willing to do anything to appear, be strategic: unlined one or two gold accessories to show that you too can compete with the most hardened fashionistas. Whatever you wear, there are three hot pieces: the jeweled sandal, the rock/glam ankle boot and the precious little bag, with a transformative appeal. Don't you believe it? That's what our stylist suggests.

    THE EXPERT'S CHOICES

    This year the classic sandal with heel and ankle strap looks sexy and sparkling thanks to original jewel applications in all shapes and sizes. Loriblu focuses on the glow of gold mirrored leather accentuated by three maxi rectangular stones set in the front band on the fingers. Divine!

    For those fashionistas who can't resist breaking pre-established and consolidated dictat patterns, the right shoe is an ankle boot in gold colored stretch fabric with a toe and stitching reminiscent of a contamination between cowgirl and rock/chic styles. The top proposal? Guess suggests it with the model that immediately takes us to the disco for an 80's revival disco night. 

    It's definitely one of the evening bag models that in recent decades has had the most success among female buyers. Its size (not too small but not too big), with shoulder strap, allowing several wears: shoulder, hand or crossed on one side. N21 scores points with its LOLITA made of gold craquelé leather. 

    THE DETAILS THAT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE? BRACELETS, WATCHES OR A PAIR OF GLASSES

    Models know all too well the "power" of accessories and bijou on any outfit. The same sheath dress, worn in the morning for the office, is transformed with a few golden details when the lights go down for an aperitif with friends or a sudden business dinner. If then your choice has fallen on the color par excellence of luxury, gold indeed, everything becomes simpler.

    THE EXPERT'S CHOICES

    It seems to be the model preferred by millennials, the one with a masculine shape but made with ultra-feminine materials, just like the one created by Swarovski, Octea Nova, with a Milanese mesh bracelet and gold pvd. Chic by day if worn with nude or classic colors, super glam by night if combined with red or total black outfits. Needless to say: simply cool when worn with a total gold look.

    As already mentioned, jewellery also plays a decisive role in enhancing one's dress code. Have you already decided on a sparkling dress? The jewel should be there without weighing it all down. Emporio Armani has created a lovely steel bracelet with an EA logo pendant with mother-of-pearl detail. That discreet but always present touch that gives a unique twist.

    For those who want to make their triumphant entrance, copying from the most famous influencers, the advice is to wear a pair of glasses worthy of an international celebs. Rihanna, Lady Gaga or Beyoncé, teach us that without a pair of star glasses, it is impossible to live. Chloé Eyewear, with AYALA, the golden spectacles with matching half-moon lenses, manages to give the wearer a "smashing" look. What do you say, do they captivate you?
