(7 for all man kind) a classic denim look works with the bag especially with accents of gold splashed on the jeans. I love the light wash and tan shoes keep the look modern. In this case don’t match the shoes and bag unless your looking to bling out for the night.

I love this monochromatic cream short and jacket by Alexander McQueen for my second option. Monochromatic looks in neutral colors work well for turning the gold bags trendy characteristics into a classic pairing. I prefer to work with texture on one colored looks unless the lines are fluid. This suit jacket has a lot going on but the shorts lighten up the look just enough to let the bag right in. (Shoes: Try the Sam Edelman Gladiator Sandal in gold or tan $100 )

An all white jersey halter and matching skirt offer a romantically demure canvas for a gold story. The bag would act as the statement piece for this afternoon outfit. This would be perfect for a day at a beautiful resort, brunch or tea time with the girls. It could also take you to charity events, an art gallery or early diner with friend. {Shop the look: Alicia Wrapping Halter $60 / Alicia Long Jersey Skirt $72}

Don’t be afraid to pair color with your gold accessories. Gold is a terrific statement piece that adds warmth and charm to outfits when paired well. I worked with texture to define this look since green is the only hue. The gold tote and a neutral flat sandal would take you anywhere from shopping to lunch and leave you exploring comfortably on any vacation with plenty of room to tote around those special gifts you found while shopping.
