On Trend: Ways to Wear Burgundy

In the Style Help Survey a few people asked about trends, in particular how to be trendy and still appropriate for work and life, or which handful of pieces could be bought to update your wardrobe.

While I don’t actually pay much attention to trends and am therefore not a great person to talk about them, every season there is usually a trend or two that I’m pretty down with.  For me this year, it’s the color marsala.  Why?  Well, because it’s basically 2015’s term for burgundy or maroon (though technically I think it’s a little more muted burgundy, but no one will care), and maroon is a fall/winter staple color in my wardrobe anyway.  So, it being “in” is fantastic news for me, and I’ll gladly lean into it!
I think it’s a great trend to partake in because you can trust will have lasting power.  It’s a pretty safe color, and while next year it may not seem as “in” as it does right now, I don’t think will make you look dated in years to come once it’s not “in” anymore, if that makes sense.  
Since marsala or maroon/burgundy “in” right now that means there are TONS of pieces out there in this color.  You could either incorporate it in accessories, like a bag, shoes, or a scarf, or you could buy a maroon top, dress, or skirt.

Some of my favorite color pairings for burgundy are with grey, tan, and black, or with colors like blush and peach.  I showed some examples below of different color pairings and how to incorporate the color into both business casual looks and casual looks.

Almost all pieces below are under $50 with current sales.
