How to do gold metallics with daytime polish? Just ask mom of two Jessica Alba, who shows us how to glitter subtly and beautifully. Attending a luncheon for the March of Dimes in Beverly Hills on December 2nd, Jessica looked the part of the lady: fresh yet festive and shining brightly without revealing anything.
Pairing an intriguing Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2012 clutch with a Thakoon dress (gleaming at the trim, it’s a pared-down version of a wilder Spring runway look), along with Brian Atwood Pois pumps (I’ve been obsessed with these since I saw them on Zoe Saldana in July!) and a Giles & Brother necklace, she reminded me why DVF’s clutches are my go-to pieces, inexpensive and high on style.
If you’ve always felt one metallic piece per outfit is enough, keep in mind that gold-on-gold works amazingly well when mixed with contrasting textures, like the soft body of this dress. And when your clutch is petite, you can afford to invite more shine.
Don’t want to wait until the spring collection release? Get your 24-carat fix now with Diane’s Tonda clutch, in textural metallic leather, or her Lytton minaudiere, a darker take in hammered snake-effect cowhide.
