As you all know, what we see in stores is driven by what is seen coming down those famous runway shows that happen twice a year, featuring some of the worlds oldest and most loved runway brands. Trends this winter have gone really dark (you know in that gothic, rocker type way), and black is coming through quite strongly in leather, velvet, denim, and all. But i thing black with gold detailing is key!
There’s a certain kind of fierceness with the combination of black and gold, I think it’s the stunning contrast, the way the gold stands out even more against the black; and although the trend has more of a punk rocker inspiration this season, I find if done right, this combination can be quite chic.
So when it comes to accenting your black outfit, try work in a touch [or better yet a chunk] of gold for a lovely update… be it studs, skulls, spikes, sequins, just about any gold sparkly detail will do.
