Color Craving: Burgundy

There are so many gorgeous colors emerging from this fall's fashion palette that we thought we'd dedicate some posts to a few of our favorites. First up on our list is burgundy. This color is so rich and bold that it's easy to incorporate this shade into your everyday wardrobe. And don't count out that burgundy is also gorgeous dressed up too. Casual or dressy, we feel that burgundy might just be the number one color to add to your closet for fall and winter.

  4. Burgundy definitely deserves alot of love for being such a sumptuous and wearable color! Adore your picks esp. the snood. When I'm feeling bold, I like to pair burgundy with teal :)

  5. Burgundy is SUCH an underused color, and perfect for Fall! I love this board :) I wonder if I could get away with that lipstick color...!

  6. I'll do burgundy accessories...but that's about it. The color reminds me too much of my grandmother's car interior - though lips & nails are pretty in hues of burgundy for Fall :)

  7. I don't know that anyone who knows me {or has been around me from August - December} needs to know whether or not I love burgundy. I am absolutely LOVING this post right now, especially your pairing with the gold/mustard cardi.

    Burgundy and gold are two of my favorite colors and I was actually looking at a pair of gold/mustard cords at Tarjay the other day. I think they'd go PERFECT with a burgundy REDSKINS t-shirt :)

    HTTR!!

    Oh, and what was that question y'all wanted to ask me? :)

  21. I'm definitely wanting something in this color family. I looked this past weekend for a handbag in this color but couldn't find one I loved so i'm still on the lookout. I ended up taking home one in cognac instead.

  32. I love (xInfinity) burgundy/oxblood. Such an awesome color! I cannot wait to break out all of my fall clothes. Yesterday I wore a sweater since I was in Lexington and it was cool there all day. This AM I wore a J.Crew puffy vest over my dress to work. Woohoo!
