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 Diane von Furstenberg 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
