Are you a gold, silver or bronze? We’d all want to win gold in the Olympics, right? But which of the Olympic metallics would you prefer to wear? Gold, silver, or bronze.
Gorgeous gold is the winner in the Olympics, and maybe the winner in the Olympic metallics choice for you. Sparkles, sequins, metallic, patent, leather, and, well, more sparkle. We love gold. It looks fantastic on all skintones. It works in summer and winter, and it can look classy and uber-casual. Team with denim, more gold or browns to bring it out at the top of the podium, its rightful place.
