Who doesn't love a bit of Golden Girls? As Maggie Alderson has shown, a lady need not reserve her golden garb for special occasions alone. Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily's Kate McKibbon dropped by to give GWAS the 411 on the gilded look...
"Brighten up the dreariest of wintry days by creating your own paired-back version of Leighton Meester's MTV awards style, or Zac Posen's 2012 resort collection vibe," she says.
"Stick to single statement items mixed with classic winter pieces. This will also ensure you avoid looking like you're about to host an evening of drag queen bingo. If you're feeling brave, opt for a statement blazer in a bright gold-hue (1). And if you're looking for something to spend you tax return on, this amaze-balls epaulette by Akong (2) can be used to dress up everything from your favourite slouchy tee to your best tailored blazer. Compliments guaranteed."
