Fashion Instinct: Trend Alert – Burgundy

Written by

Dare I say it? The weather is finally getting colder. It is the time of year to pull out those fall pieces that have been collecting dust over these long warm months. This fall season, there is nothing more fashionable than burgundy. Yes, burgundy is everywhere. From the fall runways of Alexander Wang and Diane Von Furstenberg, this color has been calling all the shots. The color black has transformed itself again, proving that it is truly the greatest of the chameleon fashion family.

Burgundy is the must have color to add to your wardrobe this year. From outerwear, to footwear, from basics to accessories, this seductive hue adds a taste of mystery without being too intimidating. There is nothing more sophisticated than a tailored oxblood blazer, nothing better pulled together than some burgundy hued pants and nothing more daring than a pair of sky high maroon pumps.

This color also found its way into the makeup chair this fashion season, fitting in perfectly with the lips and nails. A burgundy lip is flattering on everyone, literally everyone. And nothing is more alluring than burgundy nails that will surely capture the attention with every hand you shake or keyboard you type on. Even I am a part of the burgundy cult, shamelessly rocking them on my nails as we speak. Trust me, your nails and inner style guru will thank you.

What are some of the best ways to rock the trend this season? Try pairing your burgundy piece with neutrals for a more relaxed look, such as a burgundy blazer with a black tank paired with dark jeans and tall boots. Or take the plunge and go all out in this statement color from head to toe in a burgundy colored dress. Feeling a little more daring? Don’t be afraid to take on two fall trends at once. Try a peplum burgundy top and pair it with some leather shorts, or the PETA safe route with some pleather ones. Also try matching patterned burgundy pants with a beige top to complete the look.

Either way you choose to rock the trend this fall, you will be sure to look fabulous. This is definitely a trend you do not want to miss.
