So Says Simone

Gold Rush!

Tis the season to wear gold.  Gold is a beautiful color but hard for most women to wear especially in the winter. Gold is a beautiful, sunny, summer color that looks gorgeous against tanned skin and with white which is why most people shy away from gold in the winter months and are more likely to turn to silver. Silver is a cooler color that goes beautifully with black and is flattering against winter skin thus is more people’s first choice when choosing a metallic color to buy in either clothing or accessories.  But gold deserves more than just to be saved for the warmer weather-pair it with black and it is simply striking.  As a currency gold is  more expensive than silver and that is because it is shinier, flashier, heavier  and in general more fun. Silver is gold’s conservative  cousin. Don’t get me wrong  I love silver and wear a lot of it especially in these colder months but if someone offered you a silver watch or a gold watch which would you take?

Postscript- In my humble opinion, gold is not a color men should EVER be wearing unless it is in the form of a wedding band or a watch. Gold and men are a definite fashion don’t.
