With the 2012 Summer Olympics in its second week and metallics being a big trend this upcoming season, we couldn't think of a better style trend than gold.
-- Metallics and gold can be an intimidating color to embrace if it isn't in the form of an Olympic medal. Start off easy by a chic pair of gold earrings or even gold platform sandals. Or better yet, pair the two together with a neutral colored outfit. These little touches will make a big impact without being overpowering the rest of your outfit.
-- If you are ready to go for the gold in a big way, try a metallic gold pencil skirt like the one below from Donna Karan. Pair with a white v-neck t-shirt for a casual look or a chiffon black button down for a more elegant and polished look.
-- A great necklace is always the perfect addition to any outfit so why not try a multi-layer gold necklace. This will catch everyone's eye, trust us.
-- And remember, try to avoid wearing too many gold items at once. Jewelry is always a safe bet but if you start pairing it with clothes, shoes and other accessories your look will go from chic to overwhelming.
