Fall Trend: Burgundy

Red wine (and fashion!) lovers everywhere: prepare to become pleasantly buzzed with your favorite hue this upcoming season.  Going bold in burgundy is a great way to switch it up this fall while still looking elegant and chic where ever you go.

Whether it be dresses, pants, or outerwear, burgundy has taken over the runways of the FW’12 shows. Take a look at some of our favorite looks:

Celebrities have also caught onto the hype.  From red carpet events to casual days out, the likes of Keira Knightley, Blake Lively, Alexa Chung, and Gwen Stefani have incorporated the soothing hue into their looks.

If you noticed how Blake Lively’s shoes really popped, we are here to help – add some burgundy shoes to a look with lighter hues to instantly give it that same fall vibe. Take it to the next step by incorporating shoes with metallics to really be in vogue!

Another great way to make an otherwise dull outfit really stand out is to add a bag or tote in a burgundy color. The instant pop of color is the perfect touch for a fall look!

When looking for a dress to wear to work – or out! – look effortlessly beautiful in burgundy. The color is bound to make you stand out anywhere you go! Choose an angular modern dress for one that you can rock both at the office and while you’re out and about the town!

Not in the mood to wear a dress? Not a problem! Denim jeans, leggings, or pleated skirts in the perfect red wine shade will compliment any skin tone – especially as we bid our summer tans goodbye! Pair with dark heels for the ultimate cool vibe.

As the temperatures begin to drop (and our hearts begin to break…), the season will call for the perfect jacket to keep you warm! Choose one in leather or in a cozier fabric to add on to just about any outfit.
