Fashion Friday: Burgundy’s Back

Last year I totally would have told you that burgundy was my least favorite color and it would never, ever come back. Actually, I probably would have called it “cranberry” which still makes me a little nauseous, especially as a wall color. But burgundy sounds much more stylish, and a couple months ago I started finding myself drawn to it as it popped up on the runways. I mean, look, it’s pretty nice, right?

Paired with turquoise it looks amazing even for summer! (I cannot find the source of this bikini from Pinterest! Sorry, I wish!)

I’m not brave enough for this, but the burgundy lip is the new red lip, fo’ sho’.

Pairing this Rag and Bone dress with a bold belt or necklace (turquoise, yellow) would be AMAZING! Or start basic with this pair of JBrand skinny cords– amazing with brown leather boots and a slouchy sweater or denim shirt for fall (which will come SOME DAY!)

LOVE this Christopher Kon bag combining burgundy, black and gold. And how about these adorbs Loeffler Randall flats?

This Helmut Lang dress could be dressed down with denim jacket and gold heels (and AMAZING big earrings) for warmer weather and then with black tights and booties and a shrunken black leather jacket for winter months! That neckline makes me swoon. So does this BB Dakota blazer with leather lapels- with denim or skinny black cropped waxed jeans and heels this would be fierce.

If you have a dressy event, how insane is this Sophie Theallet dress from Rent the Runway? I’ve been dying to rent it for something!!!

The color of the season on the runway is working its way into interiors as well! Kelly Wearstler is KILLING IT with the burgundy, rose and grey colorway of her new line with Lee Jofa. I am really pretty obsessed with these two fabrics for pillows!

Check out this burgundy sofa looking all kinds of awesome (via Desire to Inspire)

How amazing does burgundy, pink and turquoise look int his oil painting of an interior by Kenny Harris. Reminds me of the Theallet dress!

Let’s not forget my favorite application of burgundy though….
