There’s a gold rush happening in fashion this fall.
If you’re are out shopping you’re going to notice gold sequins, gold foil, and embossed gold on everything from formal evening gowns to casual sweaters. Gold is no longer just for evening. It’s gone mainstream. Here’s a look at what to expect and how to incorporate it into your over 40 wardrobe.
|Gatsby GoldSome say it was the recent remake of The Great Gatsby that inspired all the gorgeous gilded gowns out there. Whether that’s true or not, the offerings are jaw dropping. We love this David Meister liquid gold gown with it’s elegant asymmetrical neckline and beaded side detail. Incredibly glamorous for a charity function or very special party.

|Sequined Sensation!Black + Gold is a strong combo this fall so this Sequin Cap sleeve top from Michael Kors is right on trend. We love the soft drape neckline which frames the face and flatters the figure by drawing the eye upward. Simple and sexy this is a great example of what to wear over 40. Expect to see lots more sequined tops as we get closer to the holiday season! (Get yours now before it goes, from Nordstrom)
|Gold CoatedHere’s a gorgeous statement piece that will turn heads when you walk down the street. This textured twill metallic jacket by Diane Von Furstenberg is a fabulous change from boring camel or taupe. Look how chic it is paired with black and that splash of purple.Here’s a tip: Gold also looks spectacular paired with cream, emerald or cobalt blue! (Saks has this in stock NOW)|
|The Gold Standard in JeansLaser Foil Gold stretch jeans from 7 For All Mankind are rich and regal. Pair them with a gorgeous silk blouse and you have casual class. (Available for a limited time at Piperlime)|
|A Touch of GoldSometimes a little dab will do you and that is the case with this eye catching T-Bag Embellished T with gold inset. This is the kind of top we all love because the gold detail positioned smack dab in your chest area draws the eye up and away from your tummy or hips, if either is a problem area for you.

|Go for the GoldYou’ll be a winner in this sporty sequined shell from Jones New York.It’s glamorous for sure, but the cut is casual, so it doesn’t overpower.Another tip about wearing this gold trend: Keep accessories minimal. The look should be clean and simple like you see here. You don’t want anything competing with all that shimmer. Maybe a pair of gold earrings and you are done!|
|Shimmer and ShineIf the thought of all that sparkly gold makes you feel like a Vegas Entertainer then maybe you need to find a gold that shimmers instead of shouts. This Alberto Makali Metallic Stripe Sweater may be just the thing. Soft gold threads are interwoven into this slouchy sweater that is perfect for the weekend with jeans when you want to go be casual but classy. (From Nordstrom)|
