New Classics Get the Rose Gold Midas Touch
Posted on: June 26, 2015 /
Michael Kors rose gold accessories
You’ve heard it before: don’t be afraid to mix metals — and we can’t agree more. But while everyone seems to pile on the gold and silver, this season, we’re in love with a more romantic take on hardware: rose gold. We’ve spotted the soft, romantic shade everywhere from shoes and bags to beauty and more, because it’s not just us that’s in love, designers everywhere are loving it, too. Don’t worry about clashing, rose gold plays nice with any of the traditional yellow gold or silver you’re already wearing. If you’re looking to add a dash of this daring shade to your wardrobe, we’ve picked out our favorites to outfit you and your home this season.
Urban Decay Naked3
We’re sure that you’ve familiar with Urban Decay’s blockbuster Naked and Naked2 palettes, so we the brand’s Naked3 Palette ($52) probably doesn’t need an introduction. But, for the sake of context, we’ll just let you know that the initial shipment sold out almost immediately, and thanks to some fancy math, New York Magazine reported that one was sold every second after the release. Thankfully for beauty fanatics, the palette is back in stock. The Naked3 palette is filled with a dozen rose-hued neutrals and includes both matte and shimmering shades that all share Urban Decay’s signature blendability and pigmentation. Use it for everyday neutral looks or pile on the smoke for more dramatic eye looks. Day to night? Consider this one palette that’ll work 24/7, 365 days a year.
Available at Sephora.
Michael Kors Rose Golden Stainless Steel Bradshaw Chronograph Watch
If you’ve been saving up for a Michael Kors watch, then we’ve found one that will stand out from the rest, but doesn’t veer too far from the classic shapes that Kors is known for. The Rose Golden Stainless Steel Bradshaw Chronograph Watch ($250) takes the classic borrowed-from-my-boyfriend look that Kors has become known for but adds a beautiful contrast black face that adds a dash of high style to a classic piece. It’s bold enough to wear alone, but in true Kors style, we’d wear it stacked up with bangles, bracelets and more — a watch needs a friend, after all. Let everyone else wear basic stainless steel, you deserve to stand out from the rest.
Available at Michael Kors.
Kate Spade New York Licorice Too
Basic black? Look in your closet and you’ll probably find that you’re pretty well stocked in that department.
Add a bit of rose gold’s warm glow to any outfit (LBD, jeans and a tee, etc.) with the Kate Spade New York Licorice Too Pump ($328). The shoe’s classic shape means it’ll go with everything, whether you’re more of about American classics or your wardrobe leans more towards European flash. The not-too-tall, not-too-short height hits the perfect sweet spot so you can dance the night away without worrying about sore feet the morning after.
Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. shoulder bag
Continuing with our classics with a twist theme, we couldn’t resist adding a modern classic to the mix. The Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. has become a staple for girls on the go thanks to a convertible chain strap and a tough-meets- soft shape. You’ve seen this sweet bag swinging from the arms of It girls and fashion bloggers with gold or silver hardware, but Ms. Minkoff has released her most popular style with rose gold just in time for the holidays. The Mini M.A.C. ($195) is sure to sell out this season, so if you’re looking to set yourself apart in a sea of gold and silver, act fast. It’s still got Minkoff’s signature soft leather and easy, swingy size, and inside, you’ll find the same organizational pockets that made this a must-have for models off-duty.

Glow on with your bad self! We love the warm, inviting feel of candles, but make it even more chic with the addition of the West Elm Iridescent Glass Hurricanes in Rose Gold ($14.9929.99). Each hurricane is made with a unique iridescent finish, casting a warm, rosy glow with the flicker of each candle you put inside. Available in three sizes, they’re the perfect thing to add to an entryway or side table and trust us, they’ll go with your holiday decorations and your everyday home goods alike. That’s what we call a great interior investment.
