Trending: going for gold

The matchless metallic is coming onto the fashion (and fitness) scene strong.

This season, fashion has gone gilt-y. Bruno Mars is burning down the club with his ode to 24K as athletes tout yoga mats with gilded surfaces. Today’s take on the metallic spreads glimmer over clothing, accessories, and sporty must-haves for men and women alike.

The trend is a callout to the early days of hip hop, says designer Jon Buscemi of the namesake gold-trimmed sneaker brand. The pop of an accessory can also stand in for jewelry, he notes. So go for the gold with these eight options worth their weight in style.
