Styling Tip: Wear Burgundy Clothes

One-Minute Makeover Tip: Add a Burst of Burgundy

To reinvent the wardrobe wheel, look no further than the darkest reaches of your closet, where refreshed styling bounty awaits. We've tapped our style-savvy community and fashion-wise editors to breathe new life into pieces we already own. Rest assured, this one-minute makeover is sweet, simple, and budget-friendly — no strings attached. This week, we're in a merlot kind of mood; all you need to reinvent your look is a burst of burgundy.

  • While a bright pop of color can add a neon-infused note to any look, a burst of dark red can inject just the right amount of sultry into an ensemble. Rock shades of maroon in a textured scarf, floppy brimmed hat, corduroy pants, or tailored blazer.
  • Mix this cool tint with warmer layers — it's all about the unexpected accents and daring details. Whether it's a burgundy maxi skirt paired with a white button-up and mustard yellow sweater or a crimson-colored cardigan matched with toastier tones, this is an autumnal color that can transition seamlessly into a Winter outfit.
  • Wear this burgundy hue in plush fabrics. Its deep, velvety complexion makes for a luxurious palette. We envision this cool color looking extra suave on a floor-length silk dress, felt smoking slippers, cable-knit sweaters, and suede knee-high boots.
