When we were in NYC a few weeks ago, I wore a head to toe burgundy look and realized that the color was my version of an all black outfit. The tones were deeper than the usual palette I gravitate towards, but it still felt refreshing and colorful compared to all black everything. Green and burgundy have been my favorite go-to colors this fall season. I brought all the burgundy pieces I’ve bought so far this season with me on our travels, including this A.P.C. coat and pumps and this Burberry quilted jacket (more sizes here). The neutral, not quite brown, not quite red shade with a hint of pink makes it easy to pair with traditional basics like black, navy, beige, camel and cream.
The subtle button sleeve details on this A.L.C. mini dress immediately caught my eye. Even though the burgundy shade is darker than the coat, bag and shoes, the monochromatic variations in color and texture seem to compliment each another. The warm, romantic tones set the perfect mood for date night, yet are also day-time appropriate. I’ve definitely found my new version of the LBD (little burgundy dress!). As we head back to New York City this week, I know I’ll be wearing this autumnal color more than once, even adding a pop of it in fun accessories like a hat, scarf or earrings.
