How to Wear Burgundy
The colour burgundy is a great versatile colour in the way that it suits men, women and children of all skin colours and ages so it really is a universal colour that you should try to get used to. The key with burgundy is to pay special attention to the fit of the garment and/or the materials from which it is made.
If you are going to wear a baggier piece of clothing then make sure that it is made from a nice, attractive material that will not go out of fashion. Materials such as wool, cashmere or denim work best, as these never really go out of fashion. For trousers and skirts, you should stick to something fitted, such as a pencil skirt, leggings or slim fit jeans or trousers.
If you are still a little dubious about wearing burgundy then try out a burgundy accessory first, such as a handbag, lipstick, shoes or nail polish in burgundy.
