Let’s face it, not everyone can pull off the color gold. Like any other metallic color, gold is something that must be worn with caution. Only a few can get away with it. If you’re not confident enough, the color might end up wearing you, not the other way around.

 Gold has been worn by great men of history. It is a color that is fit for a king and royalty.


Royalties in Ancient Egypt wear gold. It symbolizes the Sun, their culture’s primary deity.

With the sudden rise of faux gold in the market, everyone can look like a king. Just be careful with the faux gold because in your attempt to look rich, you might end up looking cheap.

It’s not about being materialistic, it’s about being stylish. Style is a virtue, and as Plato once said, “All the gold which is under or upon the earth is not enough to give in exchange for virtue.”
