Anyone who knows me is well aware of my rose gold obsession. From cutlery and light fittings to beauty products and accessories, I just can’t get enough of its beautiful copper and pink tones. I can’t remember when this actually began but it was long before it hit the mainstream but obviously there are more glorious product options since it became the metal of 2016. I’ve always struggled with jewellery and always found myself torn between if I was a silver or gold kinda girl when people asked what sort of jewellery I wore. The truth was neither. If I had to choose it would be gold but only if it wasn’t yellow and gaudy. So, when rose gold came onto the scene I felt a huge sense of relief – finally something I could get on board with. It sounds silly but since this style epiphany I’m having so much fun with accessorising again, especially since Ted Baker launched their rose gold jewellery collection.
DON’T WORRY, IT SUITS EVERYONE!
Unlike silver and gold, rose gold looks amazing whatever your complexion as it pulls out the blushy undertones of the skin. This means that it’s softer than yellow gold and will stand out against darker skintones whilst complimenting more alabaster skin like mine!
MIX IT UP
I’m not one to stick to conventional fashion ‘rules’. It’s too much hassle and I’m a big believer that your personal style should be a reflection of who you are, not be determined by if your handbag matches your shoes (mine never do!). This also goes for the few pieces of jewellery that I wear everyday, which include a silver ring my sister made for me and my rose gold Olivia Burton watch from my boyfriend. Without fail those two things are on my arm and hand. That’s right, I wear them both together. I know, I’m crazy like that. But, the beauty of rose gold jewellery is that it’s not an obvious difference between the metals. It’s soft and changes colour with the light so it actually looks really beautiful to contrast the colours. Ted Baker have also picked up on this by including silver glitter accents to their collection which catch the light perfectly.
Ok, not literally. But, when it comes to clothing, nothing looks more classically stylish than teaming rose gold with nude-coloured items. Cream, taupe, blush and beige have a unique quality that can make almost anything look more expensive, giving an outfit a beautifully chic finish. Combining this with rose gold is my go-to look when I need to look or feel a bit more put together.
