Burgundy for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Combined with Pink

Quote of the day: “The essence of genius is to know what to overlook.” William James

The “it” color for the season depends on who you’re listening to and what you’re reading. But there is a lot of burgundy being shown lately and I think it’s a great color especially for the colder months! My favorite pairing of it is this one…the burgundy and blush (or pink depending on your definitions). The burgundy pieces I picked for the three of us are a cardigan, a blouse and a vest. And then I tried to vary the shades of pink also. My pink is a light pink, Nancy’s is a brighter pink and mom’s is a very soft pink.

50’s Burgundy (Sweater): I tried something  different and used a pin at the top of my cardigan to close the sweater!

70’s Burgundy (Vest): For mom, I added in some olive green in her scarf. The bracelet is garnets since they are her birthstone.

    • Aww…thanks! And you probably do need to do more shopping (it’s my mantra!!)

  • I adore Burgundy and Pink together. I love all three versions. I love black and white print bottoms as they are so versatile. Great job!

  • Cathy Skelly

    I agree with Samantha about your mom’s look and bracelet. Actually, I like all three looks. Nancy looks great with the dark shirt and lighter jacket. I want to try this look. You look great with burgundy sweater, pink underneath, and light grey skirt.

    • Nancy wasn’t digging this outfit, but I’m glad you like it!! Thanks for the wonderful comment!!

  • I love Burgundy, Jodie.
    It is such a rich colour…and perfect with the pink.
    Your Mum’s garnets are so pretty, not my birthstone (mine is amethyst) but I still want them!
