Never wear all-over gold dur­ing the day. If you hap­pen to wear gold dur­ing the day, team it up with pas­tels, es­pe­cially crème.

Gold can make you look like a mil­lion bucks if you com­bine it with the cor­rect el­e­ments. If worn wrongly, it can also make you look un­ap­peal­ing. So, when you are wear­ing gold, ei­ther wear ev­ery­thing in gold or mix it up with a con­trast­ing colour such as black. Never pair gold with sil­ver, as they do not com­ple­ment each other, and might make your look tacky.

Gold in rich bro­cades or sim­i­lar hand­wo­ven tex­tiles is pretty fail-safe.

An­tique gold looks in­ter­est­ing on every skin colour and is the best op­tion for In­dian silk.

Gold should never be worn with neon colours. While sport­ing gold, avoid gold ac­ces­sories

Gold makeup is in vogue as well. A slight dash of glit­ter lip gloss can make many lip­stick shades look glam­orous.

It’s im­por­tant to choose the right tone of gold, oth­er­wise it can look unattrac­tive.
