How to wear BURGUNDY - 30 ways!
One of the season's most versatile and best loved colors - let's look at how to wear BURGUNDY.
Burgundy seems to work for nearly every color direction and whatever your style.
Although I've shown you the difference between Burgundy and Maroon, you don't have to get too hung up about the different undertones because, most of the time you'll find it really doesn't matter.
Unless a color is really unkind to your complexion you'll soon see that burgundy will work for just about everyone.
Simply classic with Neutrals
Burgundy can be one of the most useful stalwarts in your wardrobe as it will happily team with all the neutrals whatever your palette.
However, the bright jewel tones of Burgundy lift the neutrals to a new height.
Casually elegant with black!
Chicos show us how to wear burgundy with black! They've introduced the stunning leopard print ruana and it's ready to give a new dimension to the basic black separates in your closet.
Play with your Seasonal palette...
How to wear Burgundy with your Seasonal or even your Tonal Color Family? Well how pretty do these color palettes look?
This V neck cotton top from Kettlewell Colors is called 'Cassis' and is quite a neutral color - midway between Cool and Warm. It's specifically labelled for Summer, Autumn and Winter palettes and, officially, decreed not to be a color for Springs.
But peach and burgundy are a classic combination and also one of the hottest combinations for wedding colors. So no reason at all for you Springs to miss out on one of the most luscious colors of the season?
Peach really brings the burgundy to life and, in fact, there are several of the lighter colors you might like to try close to your face. What about coral, medium violet or light aqua?
How to wear Burgundy whatever your style!
Personal style will always dictate the way you choose to wear and enjoy your colors - there is never a right or a wrong way to do things!
