Burgundy Drinks Up The Beautiful New Shade For Fall

burgundy in fashion

According to the fall fashion trend reports, burgundy wins the scoring title of the colour of the season. Bidding a goodbye to bright colours of summer, ‘this Fall’s new black’ also known as oxblood, maroon, and wine was sent down the numerous runways taking a modern stance on elegant attire.

The warm, rich hue that gives this season a rustic touch is present in:

  • clothing – for example it was seen in who successfully paired matte and glossy burgundy pieces like pumps and a leather coat
  • makeup – especially at Viktor & Rolf where makeup artist Pat McGrath created the wet-look burgundy lip, the trend widely followed by various celebrities including Camilla Belle and Emma Stone
  • accessories – as seen in Michael Kors who nailed total burgundy look mixing a flirty burgundy fur coat with matching maroon fall accessories including ankle boots and a wide belt

The trend translates well to accessories. No wonder a burgundy bag, a hat, gloves or pumps are the easiest way to recreate the look as seen on the runway. Oh, and they add this gorgeous pop of colour. Ladies, may I present 4 selected accessories that drink up the beautiful new shade for Fall!
