In autumn, jewel tones are all the rage. Burgundy, emerald, cognac, dark purple – they bring a dose of mystery, sophistication and seduction you crave for during the crisp, cold months to come. The same ingredients that transform Cinderella in a queen by the end of the ball.
That is why, when the opportunity arises, I prefer to indulge myself and wear classic, elegant pieces in darker tones. For a gala, I’d wear a black dress with a surprising cut, made from luxuriant and unusual materials, paired up with burgundy pumps, a mouth-watering clutch in a similar tone and gold jewels.
Why gold jewels? To me, gold is the key ingredient to a lady-like, expensive-looking outfit, besides being a warm metal that matches the color of the shoes & clutch and can stand-out on its own. That means you don’t have to add many pieces of jewellery – in fact, I’m all against it.
At night, less is more, so a pair of Chanel earrings in a beautiful white/gold combo and a stack of pearl bracelets are all you need.
