Bordeaux is the must have color for fall. It is sultry and seductive, while still maintaining its mysterious sophistication. Some designers are even going as fas as to call it this season’s black. This tone is all over the runway from Gucci to Rebecca Minkoff – it is clear to see the fashion world is in love.
Why this color works so well this autumn is because it can be incorporated into a few of the seasons major trends – like the 70′s or a Victorian look. The hue is adaptable with its rich and bold appearance, it seems to be one of those colors that are just universally flattering.
Bordeaux is a key element for footwear as well, as it seems to capture the essence of this fall. They are the easiest to style in different ways – for example, a pair of burgundy ankle boots can be styled with a suede vest for one look and a sophisticated dress for completely different one. The result is capturing two major trends with one pair of shoes – now that is what we love!
