Gold Clothing Spring 2012 Runway Trend

Gold Standard: Get Summer's Midas Touch For Under $200

Spring 2012's runways definitely had the Midas touch — designers like Marchesa, Etro, and Roberto Cavalli showed sexy, feminine metallic pieces in their collections, done in a mix of romantic and edgy silhouettes. This season, designers' gilded gold pieces brought to mind art deco-chic and '20s nostalgia — a far cry from the shimmery Halston gowns of the disco era, and Madonna's metallic lingerie in the '90s. As far as pairing goes, we love how gold and white look together: it makes for a fresh, crisp, nearly nautical look that takes less panache to pull off than you would think. You can pop a white blazer over a gold dress (as seen at Roberto Cavalli) or just pair a glitzy gold tank with white shorts. Etro also showed how well gold can complement pastels by displaying retro shift dresses in shades of lavender and mint, and a gold and black color pairing is practically a no-brainer for a night out. If you're ready to get into the gold rush, we've rounded up some of our favorite metallic gold picks for the season ahead, all under $200 — just click through the widget below to shop them all now.
