Forget about the Midas Touch – you want everything you touch to rust! Leave the fears of looking a tad gaudy with gold behind because rust is the perfect color to add a dash of luxe to your look. Rust forms on metals that contain iron when they’re exposed to oxygen and moisture for a long period of time. The metal weakens and reveals textural layers of deep oranges and reddish browns, creating an intricate pattern. This rusting process instantly adds a uniquely vintage vibe to any outfit so don’t be afraid to get a little rusty!
