How To Style: Burgundy Chromatic

As we welcome winter, we re-introduce pumpkin spice lattes, cozy nights in, and crisp winter walks. We also welcome back some warm, deep shades of clothing, such as orange, brown, and green. 

Burgundy is a deep shaded color, resembling rich wine and beautiful roses. It is a color that is perfect for the winter and fall months, but as it is rather intense, many feel stuck with what pieces to wear, and how to style them.

However, you’d be surprised at how many colors complement this deep shade of red, and you’re likely to find many pieces that pair well with it already hanging in your closet. 

This article is going to guide you through some ways you can style your burgundy clothing, so you can pull it off without a problem.

Try A Burgundy Accessory 

Perhaps you’ve admired this color for some time now, but aren’t sure if you can pull it off or what you’d wear it with. 

Why not introduce it into your outfits slowly? Try a burgundy purse – you can choose from a variety of patterns and textures, such as a floral purse, or a glamorous velvet finish. 

You can even opt for a burgundy headband or a pair of shoes. Try some regular blue jeans, a white button-down shirt or blouse, and the burgundy accessory of your choice.

These colors will all pair wonderfully together, and this is a great way to slowly introduce burgundy into your life – baby steps! 

Burgundy Jacket 

As soon as the weather gets colder, you’ll need a jacket to keep you warm on those cold winter days. This year, instead of reaching for your regular black leather jacket or peacoat, try a burgundy one instead. 

This is one of the best ways you can test out a new color, just throw it on over your favorite outfit, and you’re good to show it off! 

If you’re a fan of leather, try a burgundy one. This way, you won’t be too out of your comfort zone! The same goes for any other style of coat you feel comfortable with – teddy coats, peacoats, you name it! 

Burgundy Leather Pants 

Leather pants are really in style right now, and putting some on, will really elevate any outfit you’re wearing. 

The deep red hues of burgundy make them a great choice for a set of leather pants. Try a high-waisted pair, with a cream-colored, tight-fitted shirt underneath a black blazer. 

This outfit just screams stylish and sophisticated, and all the colors complement each other wonderfully. To dress it up, just slip into a pair of black heeled boots, or dress it down with some white sneakers or converse. 

Burgundy Basics 

Using burgundy as your base for layering is a great way to get used to the color and experiment with other pieces. 

Go crazy on burgundy long-sleeved sweaters, tank tops, tube tops, you name it! 

You can layer these items with cream-colored cardigans, black blazers, leather jackets, and anything your fall wardrobe has inside! 

LBD But Make It Burgundy 

We all know how important it is to have a staple LBD (little black dress) in our closets. Why not get that same dress in burgundy? 

Again, this will help you get used to the color because you’re wearing something you’re already comfortable in – you’re just changing up the color.

You can also experiment with different fabrics here. Satin burgundy dresses will make you the center of attention in any room, and a velvet one will be perfect for the festive months. 

Pair your LBD with some strappy heels in beige, cream, or even gold/silver, and you’ll have an outfit that is timeless. 

Burgundy Jumpsuits 

Jumpsuits are the epitome of comfort, so pick one out to wear this winter in a burgundy shade. 

Jumpsuits are great for layering, and doing that will help you see what colors go well together. You can wear your jumpsuit over a black sweater or a turtleneck, and you’ll definitely notice how well these two colors pair together. 

Experiment With Patterns

Playing around with patterns is a fun way to get used to new colors. They also add an interesting element to your outfit, whether it’s polka dots, floral prints, or animal prints! 

Try a floral patterned dress under a faux fur coat. Pair with some black or cream-heeled boots, and you’ve got a great holiday-season outfit. 

Play Around With Colors 

Experimenting with different colors is one of the best parts of fashion. While at first glance this color can seem tricky to match with others, you’d be surprised at just how many shades of all kinds of colors pair well with burgundy. 

Grey is a color that makes burgundy stand out, and you can create a number of different outfits with this color combination. 

Certain rich browns also go well with burgundy, bringing out the warm hues in it. You can try some brown knee-high boots with burgundy pants, for example. 

Of course, black is definitely a color that you can use here, as is white. Combining all three colors in one outfit will add dimension and brightness to your style. 

Cream and beige are also great options to wear with burgundy, and they are perfect for the fall months. Whether it’s a beige sweater with burgundy jeans or beige/nude heels with a burgundy dress, these colors will make a great outfit. 

It’s safe to say that neutral colors are all a good choice when it comes to adding burgundy to your wardrobe, but if you are into more vibrant colors, there are certainly a few that will work well. 

Mustard yellow is a wonderful choice and is also a great option for fall. Bright blue is another color worth trying, with both eye-catching colors complementing each other.

Olive green is also an option, but the key here is to experiment, as you may find that the possibilities are endless. 

Final Thoughts 

To conclude, you should definitely introduce some burgundy pieces into your wardrobe this winter. 

It is a color that is perfect for fall, and pairs well with a variety of colors.
