What To Wear With Burgundy

Burgundy is a classic fall and holiday color so I love wearing it during this time of year! Every October, I get so excited to pull out clothing and accessories in rich colors and deep autumn hues like forest greens, warm marigolds, and deep blues. One of my most beloved fall colors is burgundy and all its variants from merlot to berry to oxblood. Burgundy goes fabulously with all the above fall colors I mentioned as well as with black and chocolate browns so it’s really easy to incorporate burgundy into your fall and winter wardrobe and to invest in burgundy pieces as they are so versatile. In this post, I’m sharing what to wear with burgundy with a spotlight on this pretty burgundy + coral floral dress I snapped away last month in Hudson Valley, NY when we were visiting for a wedding.

What To Wear With Burgundy

So, you might be thinking “hmmmm, what to wear with burgundy?” Well, I have some thoughts on this! For the fall, I absolutely love burgundy paired with other strong, rich colors like navy and chocolate brown. This makes for a very smart, strong autumn look. Burgundy can just as easily be a little pop in an outfit with a purse or a bootie or a main aspect of an outfit with burgundy skinny jeans (I love to wear burgundy jeans!) or a burgundy dress. Also for fall, I love burgundy paired with more subtle neutral colors like blues, white, and camel. Lastly, I think burgundy pairs beautifully with other burgundy hues for a chic tone on tone look. I attempted that a bit in my outfit in this post with my dusty pink loafers (similar for less)… they aren’t burgundy but still give the tone on tone effect.

For winter, I like dressing burgundy up by pairing it with black or gold. I especially love adding in elements of gold to a burgundy winter outfit around the holidays. A gold purse or a blouse with metallic lurex detailing is a perfect way to achieve this to make for a super stylish outfit! In terms of black, you really can’t go wrong with adding black on with any burgundy outfit… it all looks fantastic. A black coat, black leather jacket, black over the knee boots, or a black belt – you name it!

My Burgundy Outfit Details

I wore this casual outfit for a day out exploring Hudson Valley. Hudson Valley is dotted with different little towns so there is a lot to discover. One of my favorite parts of exploring was taking in the gorgeous landscapes between each town. We drove through mountains and hills that were marked by early signs of fall foliage as well as valleys with beautiful surprises like this sunflower field.

On this particular day, we spent the entire day out and about so I brought along a denim jacket (this one!) for the morning and the evening. A brown leather jacket (this one!) or camel suede jacket (this one – as seen on me here!) would have been a chic addition to this outfit as well. I carried a roomy rattan purse so I could carry all my daily necessities and any treasures I picked up throughout the day. Also, I wore my favorite soft, creamy leather loafers, which are so comfortable for a day of walking.

I immediately fell head over heels for this blooming floral dress because the burgundy floral print is so die for, the cotton is so soft, and it has pockets (you know how I feel about pockets!). The ruffled tiers on the dress add a sweet feminine element and give the midi dress a lovely flounce.
