Burgundy Rules The Catwalks- Wear This Late Summer Colour Now


As fashionistas prepare to transition their wardrobes from summertime bombshell to September sophisticate, it’s important to keep the colour scheme of late summer in mind. Whether you’re simply heading to the office or preparing for a hotly anticipated night out, beautiful burgundy can instantly flatter your August tan. Not only will this tone highlight your glowing complexion, it can also easily transition into the season ahead. Here’s how to sport this gorgeous hue in true style.

Casual Chic

Whether you’re enjoying lunch with friends or running errands on the weekend, look no further than the Stella McCartney runway for your sartorial cues. Try slipping into a burgundy shirtdress with a preppy collar, short sleeves and a tiered hemline. Add a pair of funky oversized shades and chunky white platforms for the ultimate in understated chic.

Work Wear

For a work appropriate take on the trend, follow the shining example on the Etro runway. Step out in a pair of dark maroon flowing trousers, expertly paired with an embroidered bohemian blouse. The look of a peplum cut, sweet ruffles and a waist-cinching black sash belt can easily complete your look.


As the hours shift into evening, step out in a long, loose maroon topper (as spotted at Trussardi). Accessorize your ensemble with a brown leather crop top and a matching skirt accented with a thigh-high slit. Meanwhile, a silver pendant necklace and chunky flat sandals bring an edgy finish to your entire ensemble.
