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

For our third mix in the series of burgundy, I again went with a lighter color to try to create some fun contrast. The first color combination was with pink (here) and then we tried white/ivory (here). The richness of burgundy tend to lend itself well to those of you with silver/grey hair, don’t you think? And the light blues I chose for the three of us are quite different. My light blue is very pastelly, Nancy’s is denim and mom’s is a little brighter.
50’s Burgundy (Sweater): My jacket is actually a sweatshirt, so I added a gauzy scarf to make it look fancier!
60’s Burgundy (Blouse): This scarf was a gift from me to Nancy from our trip to Paris a couple years ago. It’s actually grey, but almost looks light blue against the denim jacket.
70’s Burgundy (Vest): Mom’s necklace is reversible to a hammered gold pattern on the other side.
