Pile on the glit all season long.

As plenty of royal-perfect pieces flooded the Fall 2012 runways, it seems a memorable “solid gold” performance was many a designer’s objective—and, it was glaring; they struck it. Evident in Michael Kors’ and Reem Acra’s long gowns with sexy-sheer panels and Monique Lhuillier and Paco Rabanne’s thigh-skimming minis with a futuristic feel, sparkle far exceeded mere glints. It dominated dozens of standout, covetable looks, making it one of the hottest trends in ready-to-wear and lust-worthy accessories. This season, don’t be ashamed to splurge, and make a point to pile on a number of glitzy extras—pure, gilded and ornamented to the max. In other words, proudly proclaim yourself a gold digger—or go for Baroque.
