Trend Alert : Burgundy ~ Erin Montgomery

Summer is officially over and we need to start preparing our fall wardrobes, the nights are starting to get cooler and the days are becoming shorter and we all know that can only mean one thing. Our days of playing at the beach and sitting on patios are slowly closing in on us.

As you flip through magazines or stroll through the mall you may notice a shortage of black attire. Why?

This fall there is a new colour for your pallet. Burgundy has become the new black.

When incorporating burgundy into your wardrobe think of it as your new neutral. Because it’s rich shade it can be worn with nearly everything. A blazer and a pair of skinny jeans in the burgundy shade are great places to start.

Another great attribute is the color burgundy is it is easy to wear and it is not strictly for clothing. This fall we are seeing burgundy in shoes, handbags, jewelry and even make up.

If you want to try burgundy in your daily make up application try using a burgundy lip tint or painting your nails a burgundy hue. For those of you who may be a little more daring your can try a burgundy eye shadow or a blush that has a hint of burgundy in it. Just remember when playing with burgundy make up that less is more.

It is a sophisticated shade that works well both in the office and for evening wear. It also compliments any skin or hair tone and best of all it is slimming!
