Colour Of The Season

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know I often get on my soapbox and rant about the lack of colour in winter fashion.

I’m a sunny days, pastels and florals kind of girl. I like walking on grass barefoot, eating ice cream without feeling like it’s freezing me from the inside out, and putting on a dress. I don’t like wearing so many layers that I start to resemble The Fat Controller from Thomas The Tank Engine, waking up to go to work in the dark, or being restricted to wearing grey, black and navy for half the year.

This year burgundy, wine and maroon are in favour for winter, which I would normally roll my eyes at- after all, it’s not a huge improvement on the usual cold-weather palette. If you look beyond the monochromatic and beige staples, maroon can actually be fun to wear. One of my favourite things to pair it with is pale blue. I think it makes for an interesting contrast and can soften a whole look, and has the added bonus of brightening everything up a bit. This top seemed like the perfect foray into pairing these colours, what with the deeper pinks and maroons running through the floral pattern.

If I had seen this top on its own, my first instinct would probably have been to wear it with pale pink or blush, but thanks to maroon being everywhere at the moment, I was inspired to make a different decision.

Here, here, here, here and here are my favourite burgundy pieces to inspire your fall/winter wardrobe. Happy shopping!
