Fashion Appreciation: Black and Gold

Recently I wrote about incorporating black and gold into one's home decor and, I have to say, the color combination has been growing on me. I think gold pops against black really well, flatters a lot of skin tones, and carries occult, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and other themes really well. So, here's some sets I put together that show off a variety of styles of Goth look with gold.


Casualties


Rule of Three


Black and Gold

Watcher

Black Gold Gothic

Black Gold Men


Black gold Finale

Do you wear gold jewelry or, like me, do you have reservations of anything outside the silver/pewter/white gold spectrum? What style rules have you set yourself in the past that you no longer hold yourself to?

  1. Lately gold has been grown on me, too. I think the oppulent and pompous feeling about makes it a bit hard to pull it off. We might got used to it as we see it more and more on the streets. It's no longer a colour reserved for 'old women' or rich people.

    1. Yes, I agree. I think there's definitely an overall trend of it being hipper and cooler, so maybe we'll just get used to it over time.

  2. Gold always reminds me of the 80s. I can't help it. I own some vintage gold jewelry and I still wear it. Those are nice outfits you put together. :)

  3. I love black and gold together (mostly because silver looks a touch wonky on me - curse you, autumn coloration!). These outfits are great. I'm especially fond of that scorpion clutch.

    1. I've never heard someone say that silver looks weird on them, I always thought it was a true neutral! Hmm

    1. Yeah, I'm working on a post right now about self-imposed style rules and I've been feeling the same way. I felt like there was no other option but now I'm in a place where I'm willing to branch out just to try something new!
