Burgundy and black is the combo in every magazine and in every store right now, and I have jumped on that bandwagon wholeheartedly! I love burgundy in all of its iterations…from wine to plum to dark cherry! Black is the perfect foil to the rich tones of the burgundy and perfectly transition us into fall. I decided to fully embrace this trend with two outfits from Debshops.com.
What to do when Halloween falls on a Monday and you have to go to work? You look for a chic, slightly spooky, off-kilter outfit that won’t get you into trouble with HR! Black? Too predictable! I went with this gorgeous dark cherry Frill Detail Dipped Hem Dress from SimplyBe!
This dress has an old-timey vibe — with the long sleeves, exaggerated cuffs and high neckline. And the ruffled panel on the side and at the hem should be sweet…yet the dark cherry color toughens it up. I paired it with some socks of the same color to throw it a little more off kilter and topped it off with these crazy fun Sole Diva Hi Vamp Cross Over Platform sandals several shades lighter in magenta pink. It’s risky…but I think it works — especially for the Halloween season!
