Tuesday Trendspotting: All That Glitters is Gold

Like every Christmas season, you can expect to see a lot of gold and silver. Metallics just seem to go so well with celebrating the holiday season, but usually they get shoved back into the recesses of our closets when the tree comes down. Well not this year. We are now well into January and I'm still seeing a surge of metallic washes, most notably gold. Looks like gold is here to stay, at least for a little while longer. I mean, it's no surprise that one would see gold touching the pieces of the Alexander McQueen 2012 resort collection but it's really in the outfits of other fashion bloggers that it's been catching my eye. Don't get me wrong, this is not a complaint. I always saw that I need more gold and I was not planning on retiring my gold sequin shorts after New Year's eve, so a big thumbs up to this one!

I love the idea of incorporating a little bit of flash into my everyday wear. I mean, that's basically how I live my life, but if everyone's doing it maybe I'll get less funny looks when I walk down the street.

So what do you say? Gold = holiday only or year round?
