Believe in Burgundy

Burgundy. It’s the must-have color this fall. It’s also one of my favorite trends… which might have something to do with the fact that it aligns so closely with the maroon of my beloved alma mater, Texas A&M. Yes, it’s perfect for football season! :)

Nina Garcia calls burgundy “the new black”. Even though I don’t plan on replacing the black staples in my wardrobe, after seeing these chic outfits I totally agree that burgundy is a fantastic addition for fall. Not only is it easy to pair with other neutrals; white, navy, beige, black and gray, but its rich hue will add a touch of boldness to  your fall outfit.

Keep scrolling for burgundy inspiration below. My favorite look is the cozy burgundy cape paired with leopard loafers and stacked bracelets. Which one’s yours?

So call it what you like; maroon, burgundy, wine or even oxblood… I’m thanking the fashion world because it’s the perfect trend for us Aggie girls (and anyone else who happens to support maroon!). So go ahead and stock-up on game day attire. There are so many great maroon blazers, jeans and handbags to choose from this season.

Here are a few items on my wish list for fall… they’d all look great with an Aggie ring!

 Of course, I’ll be supporting the maroon and white as we take on Arkansas this weekend. Who will you be cheering for?

Gig ’em Aggies!
