Retro inspired black and gold

absolutely adore black and gold together. Not only is this combination classic, it is currently on-trend for summer 2013 and moving into fall 2013. When I saw this top from ASOS, I fell in love with it. The print and cut offered retro flair; and the fact that it is also a jacket (there is a zipper in the back) made it even more fun.

I decided to wear the top over a dress as a cover-up for an evening out recently. I love how it looked over this asymmetrical dress from Ann Taylor I purchased last fall. This top will also work well with black skirts and pants. Can’t wait to mix it up!
