Gold, Gold and Even More Gold Brocade!

This winter and spring 2006/7 expect to shimmer and glimmer in golden yellow colours.  Tones through lemon, melon, chartreuse to sand, honey, bright yellow, mustard, butter, corn, straw and gold abound.  You will find these golden colours in every fabric among wools, wool jersey, silk jersey and satins.  Sparkling opulent brocade fabrics go right across the colour range from the creamiest of honey to the most lustrous golden copper sheens.

Gold with Fur

Gold as a colour was featured in every autumn 2006/7 collection.  Gold ranges from expensive looking honeyed camel and caramel tones through sunshine yellow to true mustard gold to the deepest amber tones.

If you need to keep warm these golden sand toned knits and coats are just the answer.  Large fur collars, oversized buttons, checks and three quarter sleeves all give a 50s fashion feel. You are reading an original fashion trends article written by Pauline Weston Thomas© at www.fashion-era.com ©

Nights in Gold Satin........

Evening glamour has a touch of shimmer that looks like molten liquid gold.  Fabrics like gold satin and metallic sequins easily achieve this effect.  They take on a fresh new look when worn with dark tights.  Interesting and contrasting pantyhose or legwear is essential, to get that fashionable layered look.

Citrus Tones - Acid Brights

But if you don't want to have the whole look in gold brocade try smooth yet dull Melton wool velours in acid brights and citrus tones.  This zesty yellow acid bright wool sixties style trapeze coat from Matalan below left or the Sisley cape on the right would be a more casual, but still very smart alternative.  See full details of this Sisley outfit below.

If you prefer to layer, opt for just a hint of lush golden yellow as a top or scarf.Wallis Autumn/Winter 2006 - Chartreuse silk satin smock top 40

This acid bright satin blouse that looks like liquid gold is from high street retailer Wallis. The Winter 2006/7 Chartreuse silk satin smock top is 40.  Oasis Catwalk Autumn Winter 2006 - Price still to be confirmed by Oasis.You can create another fashion look simply by layering a black lace garment or airy lace knit over it. 

Dark lace over brighter lighter satins is a hot look following on from all the blush pink and black lace overlay combinations seen at catwalk shows earlier this spring.  The dress left is a lovely example of black over lemon melon satin and is from an Oasis Catwalk Show 2006/7.
