Burgundy becoming the ‘it’ color for fall
Wave goodbye to cut-off shorts and flip-flops, and say hello to fall fashion.
It appears this season, burgundy is taking over.
“Burgundy is a very fall color to me,” Howell freshman Caitlin Eldred said. “It’s that rich color with the mix between red, which is associated with passion, and purple, which is associated with royalty and dignity, and I just think it’s a good color that brings out maturity.”
From leggings to jeggings, spice up your look with the earthy tone and unleash your inner fashionista.
“Color pants are really in for the fall,” White Lake freshman Hannah Fedorko said. “If you wear burgundy pants with a jean jacket and a scarf and boots or something, that’s really cute.”
Sophomore Dayra Williams said she plans to wear her burgundy scarf this season with her pea coat and accessories.
“What makes an outfit stands out is accessories,” the Westland native said. “A simple necklace or a pair of earrings or a cute hat always works to bring an outfit together.”
With stylish pieces such as oversized sweaters, brown or black boots, and flowy dresses in this season, don’t be afraid to add a splash of burgundy with a simple bag or belt.
“I think you can use it with accessories, jewelry,” Grandville sophomore Danielle Block said. “You can mix it with a cardigan and a tank top…I think they could mix it with different patterns and different colors.”
Pair it with neutrals and other fall colors such as orange, green, or brown to complete your look.
Similar to CMU’s own maroon, Eldred said, burgundy is more purple based.
However, if you don’t have any burgundy, you may be able to find trendy clothing and accessories in the color at stores such as Kohl’s, 4855 Encore Blvd., T.J. Maxx, 4216 E. Blue Grass Road, and JCPenney, 2231 S. Mission Road.
Whether you’re going out with your friends or staying inside, dress yourself up with the warm color, keep yourself cozy with fabrics, and don’t forget to layer up.
“Women fabrics are in like wools and knits,” Eldred said. “Layers, you can layer over basic burgundy pieces like if you had a v-neck shirt or a burgundy plain t-shirt, you can layer that over with a fur vest.”
Rather than only wearing clothes to express your sense of style, don’t forget about makeup. There are several shades of dark reds and purples that can complete your look.
“Fall is darker colors, so if you do a little smokey eye in burgundy, maybe burgundy lipstick or you can turn it down with a smokey eye and burgundy earrings,” Fedorko said.
