I’m typically a little hesitant when it comes to jumping on board with trends. I mean, one moment they’re all over Instagram and the next moment you’re stuck with a bunch of velour jumpsuits that have “Juicy” plastered across the butt. Well, that trend is a bit dated, but you get the idea. This Burgundy trend though is something I am definitely on board with! Well, is it even really a trend? Can a color be a trend? I would lean towards no. Colors are colors, sometimes they’re more popular than others, but they can’t really be a trend, right?
Regardless of your stance on color trends, Burgundy is definitely this season’s it color and I’m obsessed. Even more than that, I love how time and time again I’m seeing burgundy paired with more burgundy to create a monochromatic look. Adding to its versatility, it can even be treated as a neutral and paired with almost anything. In this look I’m keeping it simple with my favorites AG Jeans and OTK Goodnight Macaroon boots. More outfit details below!
What are your thoughts on the burgundy trend? Are you a big fan of the monochromatic look?
boots: Goodnight Macaroon • sweater: Club Monaco • jeans: AG • coat: J Crew
the scoop: I love this Club Monaco sweater…okay…I love everything Club Monaco, but especially this sweater! I’m wearing an XS and love how it fits me (slightly loose), but I could definitely have gone up a size if I was looking for a more roomy fit. // These OTK boots are amazing! They are super affordable and comfortable (aka perfect). I’m wearing size 37 (which I believe is a size 6). I typically wear a size 6.5/7 in boots, so size down if possible. // My J Crew wool coat is really warm and soft. I’m wearing a size 0 and have plenty of room for chunky sweaters. To be honest, I didn’t love the jacket at first (I first purchased in light grey), but after switching out for the Burgundy I am now loving it!
