Clothed with Grace: What to Wear With Wine

What to Wear With Wine

This week I thought it would be fun to do a mini-series focused on color.  I recently joined a fashion page on Facebook where women post their OOTDs.  It's a great group with a lot of stylish women, but one of the things I see people post often is a picture, then the question: "Do these go together?" Another common question I see is: "What color goes with this?" This prompted my mini-series.  I thought I'd pick three color that are big this fall and try to help give some direction as to what to wear with them.

Today I'm focusing on wine, burgundy, ox blood....whatever you call it, it is definitely a great color for fall.  The problem can be deciding what colors look best with it.  I came up with some different colors which I think pair nicely with wine.  

  • The first is another shade of the color for a monochromatic look; this is also a big trend this fall, and definitely one worth giving a try.  
  • The second is to pair it with neutral colors, either a combination of warm tones, like browns and chocolates, or cool tones like grays and blacks.  I chose to pair it with cool tones today (mainly because I wanted to wear my Phoenix Pendant again.  
  • The third is with a complimentary color like mustard or navy.  I'm a big fan of both of these combinations too. (Look below for examples of these color combos).
To help out you visual learners (like myself) here's a handy little chart for you to reference:

  15. Mustard and wine is, no lie, my favorite color combo. I have an entire pin board dedicated to that color combo. But all of the colors you suggested are great with it, too! I love it with the slate color of your cardigan.

  22. I wish I had more of this colour in my wardrobe, it's so classy and sophisticated and anything that reminds me of wine is pretty exciting.
