Viva La Gold ~ NYFW’s Gold Trend

by Kéla Walker

While I love fashion week I hate that it’s all for the following year. It’s like the ultimate tease.  I want what I see on the runway NOW, not next year.  Despite all the teases, I did spy a couple of looks and trends that can be incorporate into the wardrobe now. One of which is the GOLD trend. From fashion and beauty to accessories and more, gold swept NYFW in more ways than one.

Kontinue to see other ways that gold is trending

 Almost every show/presentation I went to, included a gold trend. At the Georgine runway show- inspired by 1970’s glamour-the designer incorporated gold into her beachy decadent collection. All models sported golden, bronzed makeup for  that golden sun-kissed glow- aka that JLO Glo.  Designer Cesar Galindo included gold metallic fabric throughout his line, including the model’s hair which were braided with gold.

I love that gold is trending for Spring. It’s one of those colors / tones that looks good on every one and the great thing about this Spring summer trend is that you don’t have to wait until next year to get in on it. Just in time for the new season and this gold trend,  Juicy  released their newest fragrance- Viva La Juicy Gold Couture.  She Knows hosted a party to celebrate the release of the golden scent – appropriately held at the Goldbar in Nolita.

Yall know I love a good themed party.  The event was couture overdose, decorated with gold skulls and perfume bottles an of course a spritz bar to try the scent. The bar was even decorated gold with bartenders making gilt couture inspired cocktails with a touch of pink and raspberries, all in keeping with the Viva La Juicy Gold Couture theme.

So what’s the verdict on the new fragrance?  If you love Juicy Couture’s first fragrance, Viva la Juicy, you’ll equally love this one. The two are reminiscent of each other but Viva La Juicy Gold Couture is very decadent and glamourous.  Think of it as the more mature and sophisticated version of the two. It’s a cool way to incorporate gold in your style everyday.

Are you feeling the gold trend for the season? Do you love the Juicy Couture fragrance? Will you try Viva La Juicy Gold Couture?
