However, couple of months ago I was in J.Crew and, on a whim, I tried on a Tippi cardigan in burgundy. I looked in the mirror and, to my surprise, I loved how it looked on me. Burgundy and I have became friends again!
At first, I was a little puzzled what to wear with it. After playing with the color a little bit, I came up with few favorite ways to wear burgundy:
with black and white
|burgundy 'column' with B&W|
|add black shoes|
|plus some black to ground it|
|The sneakers are old, but suddenly perfect :)|
This is a twist on red, white and blue...
|Navy works the same|
To make it seem more purposeful, I like to employ the 'matching necklace' trick. Scarf will work the same way if you don;t like costume jewelry. The necklace does not have to be the same shade, 'close enough' will do, because it is small and separated by other colors. I think it makes all the outfits seem more coordinated.
Never say never...
That's all folks!
What do you wear with burgundy?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
