If there’s one party-friendly color combo we’ll never grow tired of it’s black and gold (red and green girls, we are not). Glamorous, sophisticated and the perfect match to bold burgundy lipstick, the pairing is especially practical in the form of accessories, which can be worn long after the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. Find your perfect bronzed add-on below, then get out there and turn some heads. Need a little bit more help in that department? RZ has you covered.
