Burgundy (we say Maroon) Trend

Breathe a sigh of relief – this autumn the colour you will see on all the shelves is also very wearable. Burgundy, oxblood, wine, cranberry... this shade has many names and slight variations in tone, but what they all have in common is a bold and vibrant hue that will boost your energy levels during the lull of autumn and winter, and inspire you to explore your style creativity. Burgundy is right at home during the colder months, but it also manages to feel anything but dreary and uninspiring.

If you’re not sure how to work this colour into your wardrobe, follow these four rules for wearing burgundy: you will wonder how your wardrobe existed without it before.

Pair with nudes

Want to keep your look fresh all autumn long? A neutral palette is the perfect base for a splash of burgundy to pop against. And it requires less new additions to your closet because without a doubt nude is already trickled throughout your existing wardrobe.

Pick a statement piece

Trenery are making it super easy to pick and choose the jewel-toned red piece that’s right for you this season - they have something for every layer from a silk dress to a luxe coat made from Australian virgin wool. Trenery have also perfectly paired comfort with stylish designs, so it will be more of a question as to what ‘wow factor’ piece is missing from your seasonal style, rather than what do you feel most confident wearing.

Make it work for you

Burgundy is one of those colours that knows no dress code bounds – it can stun at a cocktail event, keep you cosy as a knitted sweater, or add a dainty look to your outfit when you opt for a pleated maxi. Search for that one piece that speaks to your overall sense of style - there’s no need to compromise with this versatile shade.

Be comfortable

Burgundy is just as powerful when splashed throughout your outfit as it is head to toe, so if you don’t want to invest in too many pieces, look to your accessories. An oxblood handbag goes with any outfit and any occasion, especially when you opt for a luxe leather. Ruby loafers on the other hand are a bold and daring statement that will boost an all-black winter wardrobe with every step.
