Some say gold is the new black, so what’s better than pairing them together. Basic black can be boring, but add a pop of glitzy gold and basic becomes bold and beautiful. The perfect color combo for day or night! It’s especially fun to take a piece of clothing in this color scheme that is a little fancier and turn it into an everyday look. When you love your clothes, you want to be able to wear them, whenever and wherever you want. Figuring out how to pair a dressy piece with the right casual ones is a great skill to have – especially now, when most of us haven’t had a need to truly dress up in months (darn Covid).
I’ve said it a million times before, and I’ll say it a million times more…one of the BEST closet staples is black moto-jacket. It’s a perfect layering look, works for daytime, nighttime and everything in between. From jeans and a tee, to a fancy ball gown, a moto-jacket is a perfect addition. For this particular look I took a dress with fluidity and bounce, with glitzy gold dots and paired it with a classic moto-jacket (with silver trimmings – yes, you can mix metallics).
To keep me warm on a winter day, I added thick black tights. A girly combat boot keeps the look grounded, but also lets me wander for hours on end. Chunky gold jewelry adds more pizazz and also keeps the look modern. Funky sunglasses and a studded purse are the perfect additional accessories. The look is almost reminiscent of 90’s grunge/punk, but with lots of glam touches, and I am here for it! Even it’s just to run to the grocery store at the moment, it’s fun to play with different styles, mixing and matching to get the look I desire, and the one that matches my mood that day.

Black and gold are one of the deadliest combinations altogether. Gold makes the black look bolder when paired together. It makes you look more confident when you are wearing something unique than others and also catch attention among others.
