BURGUNDY FROM HEAD TO TOE

I think it was during Paris Fashion Week that I first heard about this burgundy trend taking off. Beautiful matching suits adorned with fashionable hats and footwear…it was instant love. And there we had it, my lifetime fear of matching came and slapped me right in the face. How had I written it off so quickly?

On my recent trip to CrossIron Mills I made it my mission to find a stylish, yet approachable way to mimic the trend. I wasn’t necessarily ready to go all out, so I eased myself into the idea by simply pairing a classic shirt dress with some wonderfully feminine heels in a matching burgundy hue. To top off the look I accessorized with a pair of triangular drop earrings which have a lovely, pavé look about them.

I don’t know what it was about having shoes that matched my dress so perfectly, but something about it just made feel so happy and put together. I think I have successfully warmed up to the whole matchy-matchy idea! In fact, I wouldn’t even be surprised if I were to look for a matching hat to throw in there too…and scarf, and blazer, and tights. Am I getting too carried away here?

What do you think of matching head to toe? Is it a look you’d fully embrace or would you be more keen to try it out in a simpler way as I did?

    This is another beautiful post Brittany! I love those shoes so much and am thinking I need to add some burgundy to my wardrobe sooner than later. I hope it’s a colour that remains popular while I save my pennies!
