Gold Outfit Inspiration

Styling Notes: Fall is here! Fall is my favorite time of the year for fashion. I love to include all of the deep rich colors that we see change seasonally within nature to my wardrobe. Gold is by far my favorite color palette to wear. You can wear it in so many ways, from your jewelry, shoes, dresses, and more! I chose to style my look all around this pleated gold skirt! I kept the top simple with a black blouse so the skirt could be a statement for the entire look. Lastly, I paired the skirt with these gold pointy toe pumps I bought years ago at Nordstrom Rack. This look gives me full on Fall/Holiday vibes!

Gold Outfit Inspiration

Styling Notes: It’s officially fall, time to infuse your wardrobe with all the earth tones and some unexpected pops of color as well. One color great for your fall color palette is gold, and I’m not just talking jewelry. For this quarter’s Ageless Style Post we have chosen to show you a few ways to add gold into your fall wardrobe. 

I found this amazing, mid-length, gold pleated skirt on SALE three years ago and it took the main stage in my 30th bday outfit. Today, I’m showing you how I styled it for NY Fashion Week. I decided to go all out and add some animal print! For a little edge, I added some killer leather booties and my favorite leather jacket. It’s a versatile piece and a perfect way to elevate any fall look. I found a similar one and linked on my Like to Know It page, come check it out!

Styling Tips: A gold piece can be intimidating for many people to add to their wardrobe. The easiest way to style it is with my favorite color black! Add a cute black cami and heels for summer or a cozy black sweater and booties for fall. Going with a gold top instead of a skirt? Pair with black denim for a classic look! As always, I hope I inspired you to try something new when styling your fall wardrobe!

40’s Blogger: That Misfit Mama Bear Life With Prissy Missy | IG: prissymissydoll

Bio: For those new to my blog, I’m Lesa, better known as Prissy Missy. I am the misfit, quirky fashion-obsessed enby from That Misfit Mama Bear Life With Prissy Missy. When I am not empowering or encouraging others with fashion and flair, I can be found with copious amounts of coffee while helping others with their homeschool journey. I may be a bit eccentric, but hey, that’s what makes life interesting, right?

Gold Outfit Inspiration

Styling Notes: Gold is just fun! Plus it works well for multiple seasons! For this look, it definitely dominates. However, if you are not sure gold is really your thing, just start with a bit of accenting, like with your jewelry. 

Right now, my big thing is dusters. Being eight months pregnant, I am looking for things that look good now and work for my post-partum transitional wardrobe. Dusters are great for that. They also make a great fashion statement and look good dressed up or dressed down!

Styling Tips: When wearing a duster, be sure to add some fun accents so that it doesn’t overpower your whole outfit. If you have followed me for a while, you know I love hats, so finding a bold hat really puts the look together for me. Don’t be afraid to try something new and creative! You never know when you might find something you love!

50’s Blogger: Betsy of Natty Gal | IG: nattygaldotcom

The color gold (think goldenrod, mustard) is incredibly popular this fall but it’s a tough tone for me to pull off.  Therefore, I opted for metallic gold in my gold outfit inspiration.  This print midi-skirt is from Anthropologie and is a great year-round piece.  I’ve styled it here for early fall by pairing it with a black leatherette shell (an old Stitch Fix purchase) and tall, fitted, heeled boots.  See similar items linked in the carousel below. For summer, I’d wear this same skirt with a soft gold or black camisole or halter and sandals, and for later autumn/winter with a cozy black turtleneck.  While easy to wear all year long, the skirt is also a great piece to include in your holiday or special occasion capsule!

Gold Outfit Inspiration

Styling Notes: Although I have a few pieces of metallic clothing, when I think of gold, I think accessories. At almost seventy I’ve amassed a large collection of gold jewelry, bags, and shoes. The wide range of gold colors available today is mind-boggling. Yellow, white and pink are the most popular but we now see green, black, purple, and blue. When it comes to metallics some say just a little. But I say more is better!

Styling Tips: Let metallics shine! Whether a piece of clothing or tons of accessories, I love to make my metals stand out and shine! My clothing is nude and light taupe and I adore the way my accessories are the focal point of the outfit.

I hope you’ve enjoyed our gold outfit inspiration! For more from the Ageless Style group, check out these posts!

Until next time…keep cultivating a simple, stylish, and satisfying life!

  1. Hi Betsy. I love a skirt that I can wear year round and yours looks beautiful with the leatherette shell. I also really love the gold pleated skirts that Taylor and Stacy are wearing. I think those would be very versatile as well. Thanks for sharing.
