3 Easy Tips on How to wear Rose Gold

With a Dash of Turquoise

 

Rose Gold: It’s pretty, feminine, trendy, and not the easiest to match! We’re so used to having silver and gold accessories, rose gold just seems to be a whole new concept. It’s trendy enough to find it anywhere and now more and more retailers have considered rose gold to be just as classic as silver and gold.

I know for myself that I’ve fallen in love with Michael Kors Rose Gold watches but super hesitant to invest in a piece, for fear of not using it as much because I’m not sure how it would integrate with my current wardrobe and accessories.

But fear not, I have come up with easy tips on how rose gold can work for you!

  • Substitute Yellow Gold with Rose Gold

    We think that silver and gold, are “neutral” in color because they are metals, and thus can pair well with any colored piece of clothing. Though this is true, some colors pair better with one over the other. For example, a navy blue can look sophisticated and great with silver accessories, but pairing the navy with yellow gold enriches the navy because navy itself is a warm tone in the blue family and it contrasts beautifully with boldness and richness of the gold.

    Rose Gold is a warm colored metal, much like yellow gold. So if your reflex is to reach for yellow gold, guide yourself to pick rose gold items instead! It has the same kind of contrasting effect as yellow gold, but, in my opinion, more toned down and “cool”. On the other hand, the copper tone, like an icy pink can look just as great with cold vibrant colors.

    Awesome colors to pair with: try earthy tones like brown, khaki, charcoal, nude colors
    Vibrant colors: Turquoise, coral

  • Mix and match metals!

    Besides, who says you only have to commit to one metal color? When you’re cohesive with your outfit by having some kind of flow or story on how you assemble your outfit, you can do anything!
    So have fun with layering short and long necklaces and stacking bangles and bracelets, silver/rose gold, gold/rose gold, or silver/gold. This can be very fun when you feel like you want spruce up a plain and casual outfit.

  • Accentuate the rosiness in rose gold and go nude!

    Let’s embrace rose gold for its soft and feminine color. Go nude! I mean color-wise! Wear clothing from the nude color family: dusty pink, beige, with a bit of cream, taupe and coral. So when you pair rose gold jewellery, it makes a nice pink-ish theme without going overboard.

Brad Pitt for CHANEL N°5: Original VS. Parody

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I was really looking forward to Brad Pitt’s feature in the ad for Chanel N°5. But I also don’t think I’m alone when I say that the video was a bit underwhelming. MAYBE I just hyped it up for myself too much. But anyways, Youtube star CommunityChannel made a parody of the ad and I found myself enjoying that much more.   Watch the 2 videos here! Let me know what you think!

Love That Look: Karlie Kloss in Alexander Wang

Karlie Kloss Carine Roitfeld Black and White Party in Wang

Of course Karlie Kloss is going to rock out the “le Bal” party hosted by MAC Cosmetics and Carine Roitfield. The dress code was black and white and it may seem restricting, but Karlie’s look from Alexander Wang’s Spring 2013 collection, has a wow factor in this bold minimalist cut-out crocodile patterned dress. The dress looks like it’s floating! Leave it to Alexander Wang’s reputation to deliver a sassy twist to iconic American Sportswear.

Although I love the clean futuristic styling of the dress in the runway show, as seen below with Erin Wasson, Karlie Kloss’ easy girl-next-door but edgy interpretation with her nonchalant crimped curly hair and banded semi-patent shoes suits her to a tea.
