Fall Colors for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Combinations with Burgundy
Quote of the day: “You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try” – Beverly Sills
If you remember Jess from my interview with her (see it here), then you might remember that she loves her colors too! She had an idea about collaborating using the fall colors. I realize that many of us are thinking of winter already, but hopefully, these colors will work anytime!
The goal was to show different color combinations with the showcased color. The main color we picked for this post was burgundy. And each of us styled it with different combinations!
Jess from Elegantly Dressed & Stylish: Jess chose the color green to pair with burgundy in her closet! Make sure to link to her blog to get all of the details and closeups!!
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: For my combination with the color burgundy, I picked pink! I’ve styled this combo before for the 3 of us, a year ago here! This eyelash sweater is new to my closet. I love the texture of it and had to get it since an older one I had, saw it’s demise in the washing machine–boo hoo.
And then these calf skin booties just got snatched up and brought home too! I actually was taking some clothes to the consignment shop to make some money! But instead I spent the money I made, on these! But how could I resist? They hadn’t even been worn!
Since I was showcasing the pink & burgundy, I had the accessories be black & white neutrals! Even my jeans are my coated black jeans! I love that they don’t gather pet hair like my brushed denim ones.
This cute girl is on a lobster clasp. Nancy has one too and wears it on a necklace. I decided to put it on a safety pin and use it to keep my scarf in place!

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Nancy chose the color navy to go with her burgundy. Navy is such a great neutral as it’s not quite as severe as black can be especially against our faces.
This burgundy blouse is a sheer material so we layered it over a black cami. The three of us did a series about how to style the camisoles a month ago here, here & here.
We kept her accessories relatively subdued with a black necklace & navy earrings. The earrings are always hard to tell if they are black or navy. I figure if it’s hard for us to tell, then other people won’t be able to tell the difference either!
I love that these wedge shoes have a subtle plaid print to them with burgundy as part of it. You can see them more closely in our plaid collaboration earlier this year here.
Pants: Chadwicks of Boston (similar here)~~Top: The Limited (similar here a very lacy version)~~Shoes: Payless (similar here in a solid grey)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here in 3-D)
Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: For mom’s combination with burgundy, she chose lilac. Interesting how both mom & I chose a pastel, don’t you think?
This collar necklace is such a stunning piece against her solid colored turtleneck.
We also added in some neutrals to this outfit. I kept them softer adding the color grey for her boots.
She’s had this burgundy skirt for ages. It’s a knit pencil skirt that works for so many occasions.
Giving thanks for so much in our lives as we are truly blessed. Thank you so very much for your support!
