coral + gold

DSC_0851In the past few months, I’ve re-kindled my love of metallics. There was once a time when I thought metallic automatically meant tacky, but I’ve learned over the years that there is a way to wear gold and silver clothing…tastefully.

DSC_0844In particular, I have become infatuated with coral and gold, hence the inspiration for this outfit. I think the addition of the denim jacket helped keep things from entering the tacky territory. Plus, coral and blue look lovely together, I think!

    • Thanks, Andi! J.Crew’s version of this tee this year has much shinier stripes, which I think treads on tacky territory. Glad I snapped this one up when I had the chance!
