If there is a great fashion color that is often overlooked and appreciated, most critics would say that it is the color burgundy. Defined as a dark red shade almost leaning towards brown, burgundy is a hue that compliments almost all other colors. Looking for a head-turning tone that will keep you fashionably warm this autumn season? Then make sure to try any of these beautiful burgundy sweater outfits:
If you want a great outfit that is reminiscent of your fun days in college, then go for a preppy look. This can be easily achieved with your burgundy sweater, as long as you pair it with other stylish preppy pieces.
Take the case of the model above, who looks like a classy college girl with her burgundy sweater. It is layered on top of a button-down shirt and dressed underneath a twill blazer. Since it’s worn with cuffed jeans and ultra-high heels, the preppy look exudes a casual yet sophisticated elegance.
Keep it Simple
When it comes to burgundy sweaters, it’s best if you don’t overthink it. Such is the case of Victoria Beckham, who looks utterly posh with her burgundy sweater and white skirt outfit.
What’s nice about burgundy sweaters is that they can be virtually matched with anything. A white bottom – be it a skirt or pants – of course, would look great with a burgundy sweater. Even if they are worn without accessories, this combination is bound to look fly. All that you need to do is wear it with some flair and attitude and you are good to go.
Burgundy outfits are often worn with neutral colors (such as the example above. However, you need not confine yourself in a safe color palette. This is especially the case if you love healthy splashes of color. Take Olivia Palermo as your inspiration, who looks impeccable (as always) with her burgundy sweater, pants, and cobalt blue blazer.
The outfit above is great for the office – especially if you are tired of the usual black or navy blue blazers. If you want to stand out – literally – then this combination ala Olivia Palermo is the outfit inspo you are looking for.
Are you a one-of-a-kind girl who frowns upon laces, flowers, and everything sappy? Worry not as you can still pull off burgundy sweater outfits with your own kind of dark of style. Case in point: the lovely lady below who looks gorgeously grungy in her burgundy sweater, black pleather pants, and chunky boots.
The model above is the perfect example of “not all things gothic should be black.” Because of burgundy’s deep hue, it always looks good with styles that lean towards the dark side.
The key to creating a great outfit is to add some texture into the ensemble. That’s where your fur items come in.
A burgundy sweater and jeans are safe fashion choices. However, if you are willing to break against the mold, then throw a fur jacket into the mix. See how the burgundy fur jacket above was able to give dimension into an otherwise simple outfit?
Before PETA supporters panic, you need not get the real thing just to create a sophisticated look. There are many faux fur equivalents out there. Best of all, they are just as great when it comes to creating a stand-out burgundy sweater outfit.
Get on the Wild Side
Say you have a leopard skirt in the closet which you have kept so long because – let’s face it – it’s a little tacky. If you are worried as to when you will be able to wear this impulse buy, fret not! It looks unbelievably good with a burgundy skirt.
Don’t believe it? Well, take a good look at the model above. Her fashion pieces are what you can consider basic – a plain burgundy skirt, a leather bag, and velvet shoes. But since they are worn with a vibrant leopard skirt, suddenly the outfit seems runway ready! True enough, a burgundy sweater can be considered a fashion savior – so don’t be afraid to wear it with your loud, printed articles.
Another one of the items that you might have shelved to wayside is your jumper. Reminiscent of your young days, it’s not something you could easily pull off. But, it’s something possible, as seen in the model below.
Her corduroy jumper matches well with her burgundy sweater – and, as you see, not a lot of accessorizing is needed. You can wear these two alone during the warmer months, or you can throw in some tights or leggings for the chillier seasons. So before you get desperate and throw your jumper out in the trash, know this: it magically works with a burgundy sweater!
There might be days when you don’t have the time (or the mood) to go all over with your outfit. Worry not as you can still look cute on those days with some eye-catching accessories.
Again, we draw inspiration from the ever-impeccable Olivia Palermo, who obviously loves her burgundy sweaters.
While she might be wearing what others might consider as a boring monochromatic outfit, she has managed to step her game up by wearing a beautifully-embellished necklace. Like Olivia, you can achieve the same head-turning look – without spending a lot. Know that there are many fancy necklaces that you can purchase for cheap in thrift stores and what not.
Full Circle (Skirt)
Most burgundy sweater outfits are worn with pants – mostly because it’s a color worn during the chilly autumn season. Now before the temps dip even further, make the most out of the fall season by exposing at least some of your legs in a circle skirt. Given its respectable length, it’s a skirt that’s safe to wear during autumn days when temperatures dive surprisingly.
What’s great about a burgundy sweater and circle skirt outfit is it’s very girly. It’s perfect for days when you feel ultra-feminine. Since it’s suitable for most occasions, you can take it from day work to night dates and drinks without any hitch.
