Burgundy is the New Black

While the little black dress might always be in style, this fall we are plunging into the deep shades of crimson red, bordeaux, and sangria-hues.  Yes ladies, burgundy is the new black!  These merlot colored hues were seen all over the runway for the upcoming fall season.  This rich color was particularly evident in outerwear such as this Rag & Bone jacket, but the trend was taken to new heights when designers paired the burgundy hues with a lacquered finish, giving the style a slick look.  My favorite season must-have piece is the shiny burgundy coat.  Alexander Wang  showed the trend in a double-breasted trench, while Tim Coppens extended his use of burgundy  in his men’s wear collection with futuristic military outerwear.  Although I love the trend, for those less daring, I suggest finding accessories in these crimson colors to accentuate a classic look.  Perhaps a perfect pair of burgundy leather gloves or a silk deep oxblood scarf to set off any fall outfit? Yes, please.
