The Olympics is nearly over, and what an incredible run of success we’ve had! So proud of our fabulous Team GB. And how surprisingly well London have handled the influx of tourists, transport situations etc. Although I really musn’t jinx things. After all, there’s still a few days left for some potential cock-up…
In fashion terms, all this talk of medals, whether they be silver or gold (or even bronze), leads me to raise a style dilemma I often have.
Which one (silver or gold) feels more ‘me’? Who suits which one, and why? Sounds trivial I know, but it’s often something I consider when matching accessories with my outfit.
But before we get onto all that, take a look at some of my favourite shinies for the coming season:
Tilly clutch, House of Harlow 1960 / Rio bracelet, Monica Vinader / Artemis spiked watersnake and leather bag, Christian Louboutin / Stormy shoes, House of Harlow 1960 / Ring, Gaia Repossi for Zadig & Voltaire / Metallic zig-zag headband, Missoni / Carmen sunglasses, House of Harlow 1960
How do you like these stunning metallic accessories for the coming season? I’m particularly lusting after House of Harlow’s Tilly clutch, and the ring by Repossi for Zadig & Voltaire, (or anything Repossi for that matter!) Forget pops of colour, metallics just really are the best accents for any look.
In all honesty, I’m a silver girl completely. I hope this doesn’t indicate I always come in second best or something!! (Although sport’s never been my strong suit to be fair!)
But silver’s just an everyday, wearable staple, and although I like to maintain a slight tan, it suits my fairer skin tone better.
Gold looks amazing on the right person, and is it just me or have you noticed that most bags feature gold hardware?? So I feel it’s not right unless I wear gold to match…
As a great compromise, I absolutely adore rose gold and that oxidised silver shade which I think adds an air of rockability.
Which do you prefer, gold or silver? And I hope you guys all enjoy the rest of the Olympics!
