Burgundy… the perfect color for Fall

bag burgundy fall 2016

Burgundy, Wine, Merlot, Bordeaux… there are a lot of different names to describe that colour range. But, no matter the specific shade you have in mind… Can we agree that it screams FALL?

It’s deeper, darker, warmer… everything that we are looking for as the temperatures are cooling down and the days are getting shorter.

It’s a beautiful color but it can be a bit tricky to wear… A burgundy blouse/sweater, no problem. But burgundy pants or shoes? Not that easy to pull off… With a burgundy bag, you’re sure not to make a fashion faux-pas (it goes with pretty much everything) while still being a big more out there than with a more classic black purse. I’m 100% sold!

I found a lot of options and put them all on Pinterest. Let me know which one you prefer 🙂


Also, if you feel even more daring this season, I found 2 options (one high-end, one lower-end) for you. Because flowers are not only for Spring and Summer…

Coach / Aldo

Obviously, the Coach option is a bit more discreet than the Aldo one. But isn’t it a good thing when you spend that much money? The Aldo option is clearly bolder. But at only $55, go have fun this fall! It’s okay if you’re not sure of still being in love with it next season…


What do you think? Do you own a burgundy bag? Do you find it is easy to wear?

I have a gorgeous one from Gerard Darel and I take it off its dust bag every year! I can’t get enough of it!
