Score the gold look and get into red carpet mode even if you are just stepping out for work or a few errands. If the ho hum weathers and the rain laden clouds above are stopping you from going the diva way, do not fret – we have a way out. But, first a little bit of history on gold before you actually think of going for gold! The Aztecs were the true lovers of gold and they pretty much forged the history of plundering and conquering for treasure. Craftsmen and elite society members usually wore the traditional Aztec jewellery, and their love for gold was such that in the 1500s, they even built a complex of underground caves and tunnels to hide the gold that the rest of the world now wanted. Yet, the Spaniards decided to descend on their territory for some good old loot – and that is how they came to seize the Valley of Mexico!
So, going for gold usually shows a love for all things glitteringly beautiful. Gold has been known as the metal of choice in the heyday when families wanted to show their social status. Even now everyone from little girls to grown women are known to be going for gold! Here are a few tips on bringing gold into your look this season!
