At this year's Much Music Video Awards in Toronto, Selena Gomez worked the red carpet in a gold mini-dress with matching gold accessories.

To keep her fans on their toes, she made sure her dress was not her only outfit of the night. During the ceremony, Gomez changed into more casual attire to perform a skit on stage with music group LMFAO.

Going for a classy but casual style, Gomez paired a sheer white button-down blouse with gold studded cuffs and ripped denim jean shorts. She accessorized with gold hoop earrings and a gold and black belt and completed her look with gold rhinestone heels.

Gomez's outfit was stylish enough for the MMVAs, yet low-key enough to wear to any summer occasion. If she taught us one thing, it's that accessories can dress up even the simplest of outfits this season.
