Going shopping for fall? Put one knockout garment featuring black and gold on your wish list. We love how this mix alchemizes Renaissance, hippie, Asian, and modernist influences in spectacular ways with its use of brocade, foil, leaf, sequins and embossed surfaces. And it’s a look designers from Prabal Gurung (shown) to Dolce & Gabbana love, too. When you wear it, let gold dominate. It’s more fun and flattering. Do not let any other color come out to play with these two. No jewelry except for gold earrings. See our favorite black and gold pieces to shop for in the gallery, and let this combination take you through fall and beyond.
