Bordeaux – The Pairing Color of the Season

Red has always been my favorite color. One thing I love about red is it’s ability to last all year. Throughout every season, a shade of red usually finds its way into the core color palettes of almost every lookbook. And lucky for me, I’m drawn to it in all shades. Bordeaux frequently makes its way into our fall and winter trends, and I love the way it pairs with neutrals – particularly black & white.
Here, I’ve paired the color two ways, both using bordeaux velvet shoes, but with two totally different vibes. In the first, I paired a simple shift dress with my OTK boots from Zara’s last winter line for an ultra-feminine feel. I paired the look with the acrylic version of the Cult Gaia – and I love how this bag so easily converts from summer to winter with the right pairing.
For my second look, I picked up on the victorian vibes making their way into designer’s lines, and started with these AMAZING velvet pumps (I think I imagined these into being when I found them – as they are so perfect and go with almost everything!) I chose this lovely lace Reformation blouse and these super unique and ultra-fun high-waisted pants by Alice McCall to finish the look.
I love how adding bordeaux to a neutral look takes the whole thing to another level, and am loving how well it’s fitting into my winter wardrobe :).
