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.
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.
Today, gold is often neglected in men’s wardrobe because it’s too flashy. There’s also a bad connotation that people who like gold are materialistic and superficial. Some of you might remember Mr. T, from the 80s.
There are hundreds of reasons why gold is often taken with a grain of salt, but if you open your eyes, you’ll see that gold in your outfit can do wonders. Believe it or not you can pull off wearing the color gold! Just keep in mind that gold should be worn at a minimum level.
But don’t worry, you can wear gold and still look good!
So here’s a basic rule: Just like your leathers, the metals in your outfit should match each other. Thus, if you happen to wear a blazer with gold buttons, wear a belt with a gold buckle and a gold wristwatch.
Gold is not confined to men’s jewelry. You can also incorporate gold in some of your accessories. The color is perfect with navy blue and other mute colors. Shiny fabrics are always appropriate in formal events.
The color is also not limited to formal wear. We have seen gold in the recent trends today in the casual wear. Check out the Gold Swoosh on that Stefan Janoski!
…and of course the Gold Casio watch that is a big hit with teens nowadays
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.”
