Golden Girl Glam
From “Karma Chameleon”-esque makeup to Dynasty-worthy, shoulder pad-heavy jackets, we’re experiencing a full-fledged ’80s style revival. And, of course, what’s more ’80s than gold lamé apparel? You can have your very own Grace Jones moment with this silk jacket from Echo Design.
In fact, if you want to go for an ’80s glam look, I’d suggest wearing it atop a black jumpsuit or black liquid metal leggings and a fitted black top. There’s something about this jacket that reminds me of Grace Jones in her head-to-toe, spandex gold leotards (which she paired with fur coats, embellished wraps, spiked heels, and other in-your-face garments and accessories) or her hooded, yellow Issey Miyake jumpsuit. The again, the fearless style icon’s influence has been evident in everything from runways (starting with the full-length gold bodysuit that popped up in the Ilionaire Fall/Winter 2009 show during Australia Fashion Week) to pop music (think of Beyoncé’s tour outfits, which largely consist of spandex leotards accentuated with gold sparkles and embellishments).
With this affordable and versatile piece, you can fashion your very own Bond Girl-worthy look.
