The metallic look is still on trend. And no wonder – it really fits any time of year. Just think of sun-kissed skin, shimmering with flecks of gold, under a shining, gleaming, figure-hugging golden dress. Gold dresses are the epitome of luxury, reminding us of the precious metal, and yet glowing warmly, like the setting sun on a tropical beach. No wonder, gold dresses are never out of fashion when it comes to evening wear – it's simply the best. Mind you, gold dresses have made their way into off-season, and less formal occasions as well, and a look at Shopstyle's range of gold dresses will show you why: They come in all shapes and forms, in fabrics that range from silk and leather to gold effect via sequins, gems and carefully placed, design-incorporated accessories. An embellished Jenny Packham floor length dress may be the typical example of gold dresses for evening wear. But if you like to make a metallic splash on occasions beyond a function or a night at the theatre, then consider gold effect tunics, to be worn over a pair of tight denims, or a cotton dress with gold accents that will not look out of place at a business meeting when combined with understated ballerina flats and an elegant short blazer. Gold dresses come in any style and suit any body shape – with blouson sleeves that give a tantalizing glimpse of skin through the sheer gold fabric, with figure hugging gold-foiling to sculpt and shape in the right places, or sleeveless but with softly flowing folds that twist into a curvy silhouette.
