No, I’m not talking about Victoria Pendleton, sadly, as she is currently on my list of massive girl crushes. I am talking about Gold dresses not gold medals. The opening ceremony provided the perfect back drop for a selection of ‘Golden Wonders’. That is, British models wearing British golden designs.
This months Vogue does give a passing glance to this winning golden streak:
Britain’s success at London 2012 means that gold is going to be the best colour to be seen in this season. But there’s nothing new about gold. Just as it adorned the Pharaoh’s of Egypt all those millennia ago, it has remained an obsession of the human race, a sign of excellence. This means that you can almost always find something gold in every season’s collection.
This Ted Baker trapeze dress shines brightly with deep gold tones that will look amazing on bronzed skin this coming party season. And if you’re already tucking into the winter comfort food, the cut of this dress will hide any guilty pleasures and show off long, slim limbs to perfection.
Perhaps you want to take the midas touch to the office? This regal print in this years colour of success is a gorgeous shift dress, perfect for taking this trend to work and making it work for you. A fitted shift dress like this is the most lady like of cuts, and this pattern and style could easily be accessorised to take you easily from day to night during the coming party season.
Nothing finishes off a look better than the perfect pair of heels. You can adorn your feet with gold with these Karen Millen peep toe sling backs, they are the perfect accompaniment to make a winning outfit.
