Gold isn’t just related to jewellery in the world of fashion – you can definitely give this tricky colour a spin in your wardrobe for an added glamorous effect.

Gold is a warm colour, so pair golden shades with similar warm earthy hues and tones.  When you combine it with colours like olive green, blue, orange or khaki, gold shades stand out beautifully.

But, of course, some of you may be unconvinced.  Gold can be a little tacky if not styled right.  There are subtle ways to wear it for a look that is chic and trendy. Earthy tones will work a treat with shimmering gold pieces. Try a gold top with a pair of earthy brown trousers rather than your go-to black bottoms.


Try the glitzy colour! Remember you just need the right balance.


Companion Colours for GOLD.

The best companion colours for gold are dark purple, emerald green, rose pink, red, cream, and dark blue. If you want to make things even more interesting, use three colours and include gold. For instance, sage green, magenta pink, and gold is a wonderful triad of striking colours.  You can intensify it with blue, a complementary colour to gold.

During a Deluxe Colour Analysis Consultation, I will give you your personal combination to identify how to mix and match your best colours.

I love to wear gold because it’s a warm colour (My skin tone is warm.)

Gold is shiny, glistening, and happy as well as dull, muted, and traditional. The brighter shades of gold catch the eye with their brilliance while the darker muted shades are deep, warm, and intense.

⭐️ Gold is the colour of success, achievement, and triumph. It is associated with abundance and prosperity, luxury and quality, prestige and sophistication, value, and elegance.  The psychology of gold implies affluence, material wealth, and extravagance as well as optimism and positivity.  Gold adds richness and warmth to everything which it is associated with.  It illuminates and enhances other things around it.

Confident, passionate and eye-catching, gold draws attention to itself.

Gold has long been associated with royalty throughout the world, along with purple.

Personally, for me living in Australia, gold is part of the Australian national colours, green and gold, and holds a treasured place in the Australian imagination. Gold is long associated with Australian sporting achievements and the national colours have a strong environmental connection. Gold conjures images of Australia’s beaches, mineral wealth, grain harvests, and the fleece of Australian wool. Green evokes the forests, eucalyptus trees, and pastures of the Australian landscape.
