Burgundy is our new favourite neutrality


There are certain established neutrals. You know, black, white, brown … Animal prints have even been added to the list over the years. This winter we are advocating a new color that can be combined with everything. We put all our support behind Burgundy.

For the record, we’re adding everything that is labeled merlot, wine, garnet, and maroon. They’re pretty interchangeable anyway. The dark red shade is surprisingly easy to coordinate. It works with other neutrals (see above). Or go bold by pairing it with neon colors, primary colors, or even patterns. Just not all at once.

The color is of course also suitable for winter. The deep red can be almost brown at times, which makes it ideal for a season that focuses on darker hues. It will ground every look. From sweaters and jeans to midi skirt suits. The latter requires winter tights or stirrup leggings to properly complete the ensemble. Shoes and accessories are also among our must-haves. So don’t hesitate to rock burgundy from head to toe.

Another plus point? The shadow will always be fashionable. Which means that most of the parts you buy now will still be acceptable next winter. So you can afford to spend a little more.
