When the weather gets cold the colours get warm! As we’re finally coming to terms with the fact that we have to retire our tanning oil and re-acquaint ourselves with our textbooks, we sometimes forget that fall is the best season for fashion. Fashion week is coming up and so is a lot of inspiration for the upcoming months.
Reminiscent of the colours of the changing leaves, burgundy is a hit this season on the runway. Considered a new neutral, this colour looks phenomenal with navy, emerald green, cream or black. This Fashionista is sporting it with a darker pair of burgundy mary jane’s, a black French Connection jacket and a leopard print bag. This eye-catching shade looks so great because gem colours suit every skin tone and complements both gold and silver accessories.
The wonderful thing about fall is that you can layer as much as you want. As the months progress it’s definitely a must in Waterloo. This colour adds the perfect pop of colour to any outfit and it naturally draws attention because of its deep hue.
Bluefly is carrying a great pair of burgundy skinny jeans right now; these would look amazing with tan booties or black combat boots. Also, Miss Selfridge carries an oversized cable knit sweater — the fall staple of the year that can be paired with leather leggings or dark skinny jeans. Forever 21 carries faux suede booties in the perfect shade of burgundy that can be matched with anything in your wardrobe. You can’t go wrong with this colour and it leaves you looking fabulous no matter what the occasion is.
