Gold—The Season's Hottest Commodity

Worn properly, the vivid shade is a great way to set yourself apart.

Three Golden Rules:

1. A little goes a long way, so wear only one gold piece (whether it's a jacket, socks, or trousers) per outfit.

2. Unless you're trying to look like a dandy, pair it with neutral shades like white, gray, and navy.

3. In addition to wearing the color as a solid, try it in patterns—like a blue-and-gold-striped university scarf.


A black tee will help counter the brightness of a gold sweater.
