Get it right, Burgundy!

Burgundy is the colour to have this season and what's so exciting is that it is that it is so versatile and can be worn through fashion, accessories and make-up. These are my favourite picks in all different shapes and forms! Wear it casually, dress it up, wear it with sequins, wear it with leather to create the most fashionable look. If the colour is too much for you as a main piece, incorporate it through patterned fabrics like the jumpsuit above, or through a scarf  or fedora hat. Even mix it with different fabrics like the leather block jacket. I am so excited about the make-up, I love dark nails and lips and this is such an amazing colour. If there isn't a Topshop near you, Rimmel's Kate Moss matte range have a similar colour in "merlot". Again, if you want the simplistic approach to the burgundy trend, colour just your lips or nails or both!!

Even though it's not a neutral colour, it is a colour that matches well with many shades. Browns, golds, creams, and blacks are great palettes to work off when styling burgundy. Tie in seasonal trends like above such as an  animal print scarf, black and gold toe cap ankle boots and a block two toned cream tote. If the animal print is too much for you, something simpler such as a gold chain or cream lace or pearl collar will transform this dress.

What is your favourite burgundy piece?
