Black And Gold Fashion

From clothing to accessories, you can black and gold fashion finds seem to be popping up all over.  And that is perfectly alright with me as I love the combination (and not just because I am an embarrassingly diehard Steelers fan).  There is something regal about the these two shades together and who doesn’t want to feel a bit like royalty?!  Clearly, I am very excited to see the combination making such a huge impact on fall fashion.

One of the reasons I like the combination is the drama.  I am a big believer that metallics are neutrals.  Of course, black is a neutral as well.  But these neutrals have impact and strength.  And together they make a statement that is truly eye-catching.

But don’t take my word for it!  Take a look at some these Fall 2012 runway looks in this FabSugar video:

Now you too are hungry for black and gold fashion.  Aren’t you?  No need to be shy!  Because I have rounded up some finds to help you introduce this lux look into your wardrobe:

Black and Gold Fashion Finds:
Diane von Furstenberg “Colorblock Finger Gloves”
Alice + Olivia “Donnie Haircalf Booties”
Torn by Ronny Kobo “Casey Dress”
Mary Jo Matsumoto “Laguna Libertine Mini Wallet”
Belle Noel “Enameled Modernista Necklace”


So, are you sold on the black and gold trend?  Would you wear it in a big way or opt for a more subtle accessory option?


  1. Alexis, thank you so much for including our Laguna Libertine mini wallet in your round up! I love the black and gold trend (obviously) and can’t wait for it to get just a little cooler to really start wearing the trend more. I can see how black and gold would complement your aesthetic–think you are going to love the new all black mini wallet (with just a tiny gold band) in production for holiday.

  2. A classic and alluring combination. I love black and gold together so much more now, and very happy that there’s so much baroque inspiration, which has truly been an old favourite for me! xo

  3. I am not a big fan of gold. In fact, I tend to stay away from it at all costs. It just doesn’t flatter me, but I have gotten jealous of people who absolutely rock black and gold and look great doing it, knowing that it is not one of those combinations that can do the same for me.

  4. When I was younger I hated gold, but I appreciate it so much more now and I love it with black… great accent color

  5. I am hungry for black and gold too, but I’ll be doing the gold with jewelry as I don’t have any gold clothes. Sigh.

  6. I love the gold & black combination, but in a big way….I absolutely love the booties:)

  7. I love this trend. It’s so easy, but it’s so luxurious and chic.

  8. I love black and gold and I need those booties in my closet ASAP!!

  9. Love Mary Jo’s wallet – that little beauty could go to any event.

  10. Ooooh yes, I am ALL about the gold right now, both for fashion and interiors – that mini wallet is gooorgeous!

    Great round up!
