FINALLY a colour any girl can rock. Last summers light pastels left us all a bit washed out, while the rend does live on, this winter we are encouraged to go big and bold in edgy dark colours - navys, black, emerald - and my personal favourite: BURGUNDY.
The A/W 2012 runways embrace the trend - designers incorporated the colour using leather, lace & sheer materials. The shades ranged from too-red-to-be-burnt-orange to a redish plum; sometimes layering these different tones over each other.
Mix the colour into a plain outfit up with a comfy circle scarf, classy felt hat or floppy and fun beanie or be bold with key pieces in the shade.
JOIN IN ON THE FUN!
Personally, I've been buying dresses, skirts & knits in the shade - although I'm still searching for that perfect burgundy tote. Here are some of my picks from TOPSHOP's fall line up, burgundy in unique fabrics seems to be the most popular - I'm in love the velvet undies and denim overall-dress but picking a cozy knit to throw on a 'blah' outfit is a good investment piece.
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING (or would like to) IN THE COLOUR?!
