“We wait for the bus that’s going to Bangor
In my plaid dress and burgundy shoes
In your red lipstick and lilac kercheif
You’re the most pretty lady in the world
Burgundy Shoes – Patty Griffin
Like most women , I too have been through phases of on and off liking for the vibrant red color. It brings in so much of energy, life and passion , maybe even ostentatious cry for attention, seduction and power. No wonder ,however cliché the red color seems for love, it still rules the retail consumption around the globe on the Valentine’s day.
But let’s not think of scarlet red, Crimson red and burnt red here ( Yes, for those who don’t know there are different shades only of red color )
We will talk in this blog of color that will rule the 2014 Fall collection – BURGUNDY.
I have paired a classic Burgundy shift dress from Promod with a dull finish gold necklace to match with the gold zipper details of the dress. The cut of the dress and sleeve length makes it perfect for an evening escapade. Black envelope clutch and Leopard print high heels finish the accessorizing. Side braid and red lips complete the final styling.
The same dress can be also worn through the day by tweaking the accessories a tad bit. I changed the Heels to Flat olive-green gladiators , chucked the gold necklace for a printed olive-green scarf and the black clutch for a tan leather satchel.
The second look that I created was Burgundy high neck top and my ever favorite – always go to white pants. This look can be easily carried from day to-night by just changing the footwear and handbag .
The look was accentuated with nude/beige wedges , tan leather belt and tan leather satchel put nonchalantly across. I love the watch and the glares. They add that extra zing to the styling along with the high up do and red lips.
To add an interesting element , try teaming this ensemble with a waist coat. Nehru jackets are making a big fashion statement in India. Powder blue Nehru jacket from Fabindia adds up a quirky personal style to this look.
The same look can be carried forward for an evening out by teaming with black peep toes and Black hand bag.
So are we ready to dress some, stress some, impress some , distress some, kill some and win some ?
