We’re starting a new series here on BX – “One Look X Ways.” This specific installment happens to have 5 ways, but sometimes there might be fewer, sometimes more. The general gist … some of the BX will take one trend or theme and show you how to rock it a bunch of different ways. First up … how to wear burgundy.
1. First up, Lyssa
I bought these pants from H&M at the end of the Summer, and I wasn’t totally sure what to wear with them at first. No matter what I paired them with, I felt like a clown. I finally settled on this casual grocery-shopping outfit (the official name). It’s neutral up top, spicy on the bottom! I also bought a pencil skirt in the same color, which I like to wear with a white button up, riding boots and a fun, patterned scarf.
While I was browsing my college bookstore, I came across the Nicole by O.P.I collection. For those who are not familiar with this collection, it is one that is associated with the Kardashians. The shades are all inspired by the famous Kardashian women. When I came across “Sealed With A Kris,” I had to get it. It’s not bright red, but is deeper and closer to burgundy. This dark shade is the only color I’ve worn on my nails for the past three weeks. I think it’s absolutely perfect for Fall, and I love it whether I’m in class during the day or out at night. This is by far my favorite nail color this season and even better, it only takes a coat or two to make it perfect!
4. Anne … well her coworker
Burgundy is a great look for your lips too — and you don’t need to necessarily wear it deep and vampy. My work colleague, Alex, shows how you can get a beautiful “stained” look by just dabbing on a burgundy lipstick rather than “drawing” on a distinct line. She used NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Terre De Feu to achieve this look. Muah!
How do you wear burgundy?
