Out with the pastels and neons from last spring and summer, and in with the warm, burnt tones of fall and winter. Burgundy has been a hit on the runway and on campus for the past few months, and it's a colour trend that doesn't seem to be fading any time soon!
On the runway, designers loved this colour so much that it got the title of Milan's biggest outbreak colour of the season! Labels such as rag & bone paired wonderful burgundy coats and pants with black patent military boots for their fall 2012 runway show. Tommy Hilfiger featured various outerwear pieces, suits and pants in his collection, proving that he also loved this colour too!
You don't need to be a top model to rock this colour though. Stores all over the place are adopting this colour and providing it to you at affordable prices. Urban Outfitters carries a great line of cigarette skinnies in this beloved colour, but it can also be found spread across the floors of H&M, Zara and American Apparel as well.
This Fashionisto opted for burgundy pants, which are a popular choice for many. They're a good option if you'd like to try adding coloured jeans into your wardrobe because they're fairly subtle, yet still fun and exciting. Another option for this colour could merely be a burgundy button down or knit that can be layered with just about anything. Give it a try!
Hint: Burgundy is a great alternative to a more overpowering, bright red. It's more subdued for the winter months and easier to match with neutral tones like blacks and greys.
