Trend hunch - Black + Gold

Yo Feather, just a quick post tonight. I've been meaning to tell you, I can't get enough of black & gold at the mo'.
I was wary at first. If not worn properly, this look can verge over into the 'too much money, not enough style' territory. Think overly tanned, rich women who carry yappy dogs around, have toy boys and more ex husbands than they've had hot dinners.

I think this works best when made up of edgy but simple seperates of mostly black, with some white or grey. Then add the touches of gold. But avoid the black - white - gold - repeat look for a "too done" look .
Combined influences of 70's rock star wife and classic form fitting shapes would be the perfect inspiration
