    The trick to making gold lamé versatile: think of it as a neutral shade. For example, these trousers would look equally cool with a fitted black blazer and ankle boots as they would dressed down with a colorful sweater and oxfords, like this Nanette Lepore look.

    We've seen lamé sleeves on everything from basic tees to gorgeous gowns, as seen above at J. Mendel.

    Pretty much everything coming from Skaist-Taylor (Juicy Couture founders Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor's new line) is high octane ... and we love it. Pair these lamé shorts with a thin tee and a black blazer for a modern sort-of suit, or with a a pair of thick blight tights and a chunky sweater.

    OK fine, they're not technically lamé, but these shiny (and awesome) gold kicks get the point across just fine.

Once upon a time, the thought of gold lamé called to mind glitzy grandmas or Las Vegas party girls (or an amalgamation of both). However, thanks to an especially strong showing on Fall 2012 runways, the shiny gold fabric is poised to be a seasonal standout. Designers such as Nanette Lepore, J. Mendel and Prabal Gurung incorporated lamé into everything from sleeve accents and collars to slim-cut trousers, resulting in a modern, anything-goes vibe. Here, a few easy ways to incorporate the flashy fabric into your everyday wardrobe.
