Black and gold have been around forever. From that catchy Sam Sparro song, "Black and Gold", to its resurfacing as one of the hottest color combinations this season, black and gold is back in a strong way. The color combination has become a trend that has spread beyond the mixing of metals and colors.  Though the mix can come off strong, matte black juxtaposed with a hint of shining gold makes for a go-to look that is sure to get you noticed.

Aimee Song of Los Angeles fashion blog Song of Style wore her version of this hot trend through gold and black embossed pants, paired with a black, slouchy, long-sleeve blouse.  The pants' structure, along with the playful quality of their fabric, gives them the vibe that they can be worn both day and night. Gold jewelry brings the outfit together, and makes it look modern.

Los Angeles fashion blog The Chriselle Factor features black and gold pieces in over half of their top fall accessories.  "The Chic list", as the blog calls it, displays the trend on everything from full necklaces to tiny gold details within earrings.  

The looks range from tribal to classy and simple, and include vintage pieces as well.  Each piece is different in style and shape, showing the range that the black and gold color combination has within accessories and clothing.


If you're still unsure about trying the black and gold trend, affordable, fan-favorite retailer Forever 21 bring the trend to sweaters, leggings, and, of course jewelry.

With Versace-inspired looks featuring gold chains and gold detailing, you would be hard pressed to walk into this mecca of affordability without finding something that meats your black and gold desires. The trend has taken off so quickly that many of the black and gold finishes of the retailer's accessories are out of stock! But, luckily, there are so many black and gold accessories to choose form that you are sure to find the perfect piece for your wardrobe.

The always fashion-inspiring Polyvore showcases a whole section of black and gold accessories that goes beyond the traditional plated gold. From rose gold to platinum, the black and gold color combinations and styles are endless.  You can bring black and gold into your look through a variety of accessories and outfits, and every store will have something to fit the trend.
