Fall Colors for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Combinations with Gold
Quote of the day: “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good” – Samuel Johnson
The fall season may be nearing the end with the holidays coming upon us, but the color gold could be considered fun all year long. The three of us each styled a yellow gold item from our closet with different combinations. The interesting fact is that we all chose neutrals to go with the showcased color.
We started the fall colors series by choosing the color burgundy to pair with different colors here. In that post, we even had a fourth blogger, Jess from Elegantly Dressed & Stylish, join in on the fun!
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: For the yellow gold color, I had to bring back my sleeveless trench. I know I just showcased it with our trench series: here, here & here, but I might as well get some good use out of it, right? I went with navy as my other color with the gold.
The gold trench really stands out against the navy. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I wanted to try to make it more subtle. So I wore a scarf over the trench and added a belt over the top of it.
And then I wanted to also give some more love to my print ankle boots. They got featured recently in our ankle boot series: here, here & here. There’s a little gold in the print on the booties, but I think even if there wasn’t, the colors from the scarf blend with the boot print.
I have to confess that the scarf is actually my husband’s scarf. He was just gifted it from a friend who brought it all the way back from Italy. I figured what’s in his closet, is also part of my closet—just like we learned last week in the series Borrow from the Boys!!
Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Nancy has a gold colored, long sleeve t-shirt that got pulled out for this challenge. She thought it’d look great with her black striped fur vest.
There are times I hesitate to combine gold with black because it reminds me of a bumblebee too much. That’s why I had Nancy wear her white jeans with this outfit.
These ankle booties almost match the fur vest perfectly. Not that your shoes need to match, but it’s fun every once in a while!
We used a gold stone necklace & earrings for the required bling in her outfit! The accessories and the vest were all purchased at Rosey’s by Diane here in Denver!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: For mom’s gold item, we chose a camisole. Her first choice was to pair her gold with brown! Mom’s is more of a metallic gold color as opposed to Nancy’s & mine that are yellow gold!
Mom remembers that we both saw and wanted this jacket at a sample sale store. It’s funny how one person remembers different things than another. I have no memory of this event, but I believe her, since I love it!
This brooch was the first accessory I grabbed after getting mom dressed. I thought it was heavy enough to stand up against the texture of the jacket. Then, since it has pearls on it, mom grabbed a pearl necklace. I could see that many women might think that a brooch & a necklace & earrings would be too much. Sure, I get that, but the necklace is much more delicate than the earrings & brooch.
I chose the black bracelet to pull in the black from the belt on the jacket. We could have easily switched out this belt with any of the other’s that mom has in her closet, but I thought the black was a good mix.
Pants: Belly B Gone (similar here in a cord version)~~Jacket: Cheryl Nash (similar here as an absolute splurge or here not quite as tweedy)~~Top: Escapades (similar here with embroidery)~~Boots: (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)~~Brooch: (similar here)
