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.

And here’s some other gold items:

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Love Charlotte’s outfit head to toe – including the jewelry! Still coveting your boots.

    • She’ll be tickled pink to hear that, Kathleen!!

  • Jodie, I just wanted to say I love your outfit and love the color of those tights!!

      Thanks so much Jonathan!!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Jodie, yes I am playing catch up again! Ha, ha. That’s life right now. I like what you did with your trench. By layering the scarf over it with the belt and by adding the printed ankle boots you do not resemble a Michigan fan at all. Ha, ha. I also like the different textures in your outfit from the fringe on your scarf to the belt and the cable knit on your sweater dress. Nancy looks nothing like a bumble bee, but looks very stylish with her white pants and fur vest. And I like your mom’s jewelry. I think it all balances out since the jacket stands out the added jewelry helps bring that about. – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I really appreciate that you even look back at the older posts to catch up Amy!!
      Life can really get busy, especially at this time of year.
      Thanks for taking the time to not only look back, but also comment and let me hear your thoughts!! I really appreciate it!

    Stopping by from Sunday’s Best. I love all 3 outfits in this post. I would wear them all, but I love the yellow/gold vest. I’m applauding of 3 of the models. Looking very fashionable ladies. Love the inspiration!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for such kind words Rhonda!!

  • Great showcase for yellow gold with three different shades combined with three different color palettes and three different wardrobe items. All of you look lovely and I adore the remixing of the elements in your outfit from previous posts, Jodie. Thank you for the inspirations and for adding your post to my Fine-Whatever link up.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Rena!!
      I love being able to show the same theme but so differently—hopefully someone out there will be able to get some inspiration!?!

  • Three wonderfully chic autumn outfits here, dearest Jodie!! 🙂 Gold isn’t a colour I’ve ever really worn – not even gold jewelry! – but I love the gorgeous texture of your mom’s jacket against her metallic camisole…and that brooch finishes off the ensemble perfectly!! Nancy’s combination isn’t the least bit “bumblebee”…in fact, I’m totally crushing on that faux-fur vest over her sunny tee and white jeans (no surprise there, right?!) And finally, your own layered look is totally “street-style star” with those of-the-moment booties and the way you’ve belted your (husband’s!) scarf over your sleeveless trench!! XOXO


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for the fabulous comment, Monika!!
      I can’t believe you never wear gold! Not that I have a ton of it in my closet, but it certainly adds some fun brightness to an outfit!! Time to go shopping, I say! ha ha!

  • PetiteOver40

    Whenever I see yellow I think of you. Did you know that? Now I have even more reason to think of you! Love the combinations. You all look so elegant!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      How funny, Sherry!!
      I was surprised at how little gold I actually have in my closet—especially considering how much I love yellow! Unless, of course, you call them the same–then I’m good!!

  • Beautiful colors! And I love, love those floral boots. Thanks for linking, xo


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Patti!!

  • Kristin & Megan

    Such a beautiful fall color! I love adding pops of gold to my looks this time of year!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I do have a gold sequin skirt that I’m planning to wear to a holiday party!! Sequins are always good for the holidays!

  • Anna Parkes

    Gold is one of my favourite colours regardless of the season so I have to say I’m pretty much on board with all of these looks. Your duster is gorgeous and doesn’t it work so well with your cute floral booties?
    Have a great weekend x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      As much as I love yellow, I was quite surprised how very little gold I have in my closet!
      It’s funny how we gravitate towards certain colors at different times!
      Thanks for the love, Anna!!

  • I LOVE that you ‘borrowed’ your husbands gift! Love all three looks…again!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Darlene!!
      I mean, hey—if the item is in the house—it’s communal property, right? Ha ha—at least my husband doesn’t mind!!

  • That is one of my favorite outfits on you Jodie. I think the bright colors work well with your fair coloring. And you’re wearing your fabulous boots again! And the yellow jacket too. I need to up my booties game after seeing you!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I do love a great pair of footwear—it’s kinda my obsession! One of my rationales is that I can gain 5 pounds and they still fit—ha ha! Besides, boots & booties are pretty much the majority of what I wear in the winter—so might as well have some fun pairs!!
      Thanks for the love, Julia!!

  • La Veine

    All of the ladies look great! 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Marta!!

  • Wow this is gorgeous! and how gorgeous your boots are Jodie! So cool!

    Gemma x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Gemma!!
      I am super glad I splurged on these boots! I hope to wear them tons!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Floortje!!

  • Tina von tinaspinkfriday

    Oh yes. Three fabulous ladys. Such a great style in gold. In this season I have a favorite in mustard.
    Wish you a nicy weekend, Tina

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Tina!!

  • Very nice! I love your outfit! And the way you wear your (Hubby s )scarf!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nancy—just like in the series when we borrowed men’s shirts–I figured why not borrow his scarf??

  • AModernMomBlog

    You ladies are rocking the yellow, which is not easy to do! Great outfits. My favorite item is the yellow duster. It’s so unexpected!

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Carly!!
      I really love the color yellow, but I do feel a bit conspicuous in this duster—but hey—it’s fun!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  • I usually refer to this shade as mustard in the fall, but none the less, i love it! One of my favorites


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ahhh….you’re right Michelle. It’s definitely a mustard color!
      It’s nice to hear that you have some of it!
      I think it was last season when I walked into Banana Republic and was so disappointed that they basically only had grey & black in their inventory!! I think it’s way more fun to wear color all year!!

  • This is a great post Jodie.
    I love all 3 looks (for different reasons) and would happily wear all of them!
    Gold is such a great colour…. so flattering for you all.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Samantha!!
      I do think it’s one of those underappreciated colors (of course, one of the reasons I say that, is there wasn’t much of it in any of our closets!!)
      Sounds like a great reason to go shopping, eh??

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    Love gold as a go-to color! I have several gold blouses and sweaters. Even a gold pair of long socks that peek out on top of my boots 🙂 Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Wow Terri—I think you’ve got the most of all of us (I have a lot of yellow, but not as much gold). And it makes me wonder why? I do love the shade quite much!!
      Well–that’s something to take care of tomorrow while I’m shopping and supporting the small businesses—ha ha!!
      Thanks so much for your thoughts!!

  • I love all your three images, you look so elegant! Like this post!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Olya!!

  • I don;t really wear this color. Great inspiration.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well, it was hard to find much of it in mom’s or Nancy’s closet—so you’re not the only one!!
      How’s the little one doing, Amy?
      Sending you lots of love!!

  • Jodie, thank you again for the mention.You are sweet! Love the combinations with gold. What a pretty scarf you borrowed and of course I love the print booties, great combination of colors. Your mom looks great in her fur, and I always think of the Pittsburgh Steelers, with black and gold. I do really love that you added white pants, great idea! I also love the colors of Charlotte’s blazer. Very pretty! Have a great weekend! jess xx

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Funny, how the gold & black reminds you of a sports team, Jess!! That made me laugh!!
      Happy Friday!!

  • Judy Gramith

    I must have missed the series where you originally featured your darling floral boots Jodie. Looking back I see no comments from me so it must have been a week when we were in S. DAK.
    I think your long trench vest is very cool and looks great with the navy dress and tights. The spectacular accessory are those fabulous booties!!
    Nancy’s vest is really cool and I love the length of it. She could easily do a long turtleneck and a legging because that vest has such great length. Her booties really do go perfectly with the vest.
    Charlotte’s jacket is so wonderfully textural! I think her pairing it with the bronzier version of gold is perfect!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks the love on all three of us Jude!
      I did fall in love with those booties when I saw them online—and I have to admit, they just make me smile every time I see them! I’m sure I’ll keep them for over 20 years–just like my denim ones!

  • Mireille

    I love your trench coat and how you have styled it. Been going back and reading your posts and enjoying the different series, they are a lot of fun! And encouraging me to try new combos!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      How fabulous Mireille!!
      I do think it’s been quite fun to be more adventurous in my clothing as of late!!
      Happy Friday!!

    Amazing style here ladies, so classy and creative, perfect! Baci, Valeria – Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

      Thanks Coco!!

  • Queen of Rods

    I love all three outfits. The accessories you chose work well with each one 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Janet!!
      It was interesting how both mom & Nancy didn’t have much gold in their closets!
