It’s bold and it’s glam­orous, but it’s tricky. Yet gold is rul­ing the roost in In­dian and in­ter­na­tional fash­ion cir­cles. From de­sign­ers to celebri­ties — most fash­ion in­flu­encers have been cast un­der the spell of gold and have been seen step­ping out wear­ing its var­i­ous avatars. As a re­sult, sev­eral red car­pets and other ma­jor events have wit­nessed a del­uge of gold dresses, ac­ces­sories and el­e­ments of late. “Gold has al­ways been as­so­ci­ated with pres­tige. The trend of sport­ing gold out­fits is grow­ing by the day. It is classy and chic, and ef­fort­lessly cre­ates an ef­fec­tive style state­ment,” says de­signer Sayan­tan Sarkar.

Gold rep­re­sents hope, and in the po­lit­i­cal and cul­tural may­hem around the globe, dress­ing up in gold re­flects pos­i­tive op­ti­mism, be­lieves de­signer Mayyur Giro­tra. “Peo­ple no longer need spe­cial oc­ca­sions or fes­ti­vals to dress up spe­cial. They are churn­ing out metal­lic shiny wardrobes to cel­e­brate small mo­ments of their life. Thus, gold is the best way to have that sparkle be­yond the festive sea­son,” he adds.

De­signer Amit GT, who used the colour gold for metal­lic belts in his new col­lec­tion, says this trend is likely to last for a while. “This sea­son, gold is pri­mar­ily be­ing used in em­broi­deries and in ac­ces­sories,” he adds, re­veal­ing that while it com­ple­ments al­most all sil­hou­ettes, gold used in blouses is eas­ier to wear and in­jects cheer in the over­all look.
