Fall Colors 1 (Burgundy) with Jess

Fall Color Combinations in fashion.

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.

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.

  • Kathleen McDermott

    I ❤️ burgundy. Such a rich and flattering color. Your booties are so cute and you know how I love your necklace.

    • Burgundy seems like one of those rich colors!! It’s so fun to pair it with all kinds of different colors!!
      Thanks Kathleen!!

  • PetiteOver40

    What great color combos for fall, Jodie! I’m always impressed with your details — like the little lady pin and your mom’s necklace. And it’s neat to see the colors everyone chose to wear with burgundy. That sweater of yours too! ❤️ Great post!!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Sherry!
      Burgundy is such a rick color—I think it’s hard to find a combination with it that doesn’t look great!!

  • Oh, I love burgundy. This is such a rich color. I love all of your styles. But I would like to mention one more thing – eyeglasses. You choose perfect eyeglasses. Very bold, nothing boring and this way it looks like perfect accessory not only necessity. Thank you for sharing your post with My Red Carpet.

    Anna xoxo

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Anna!
      The eyeglasses are really in part to a reader who suggested some more modern glasses. So I’ve been switching them out occasionally for both mom & I! I am starting to think of them as part jewelry—so it’s been fun!!
      Thanks for stopping by Anna!

  • You ladies all look lovely in your burgundy ensembles! I love that you’ve included your Mum and stepmother too 🙂 I just can’t bring myself to wear burgundy, as my high school uniform was burgundy. All these years later, I still avoid it (personal hang up of mine, nothing against burgundy – LOL!) #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I can totally understand that feeling Lyndall!! I still have a hard time wearing orange & brown and I wasn’t even in a uniform—it’s just those memories!
      Thanks for stopping by!!

  • writeofthemiddle

    First time visiting your blog Jodie and I love how you involve your Mom and Step Mom and show styling for 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Love it! I really like all the combinations with burgandy in this post. What a bunch of stylish ladies! 🙂 #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for such a kind comment Min!!
      It has been a fun (at least most of the time–ha ha) for the 3 of us!! I hope you’ll stop by again soon!

  • Nicole Mölders

    Thanks for linking up to the Top of the World Style linkup party. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      And to you too Nicole!!

  • Najah Sameen
    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Najah!!

  • Oh wow! All of these are fabulous looks! I really do love burgundy, especially at this time of year. 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lindsey!!
      Burgundy does lend itself so well to these colder months!!
      Happy Thanksgiving and I appreciate the comment!!

  • I love all of these combos – burgundy with navy or white are probably my favourites! #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I always love pairing the darker colors with white too, Deborah!! For some reason, it makes them pop more (at least in my eyes!)
      Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving!

  • dan

    Burgundy … is there a most versatile colour in the cold season ? ? I saw Jess ‘ post and loved the combination with green. Today I love how you matched burgundy to pink !! And, what to say about burgundy plus lilac? Absolutely perfect!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It is amazing how so many other colors work so well with the burgundy, right, Dan?
      It was a fun time letting mom & Nancy pick their own colors to pair with burgundy—I may not have picked the same ones for them!!

  • Cute ankle boots!
    Thanks for joining the Lovin Life Linky.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Leanne!! I am definitely a shoe girl!!

  • Helen Greenwell

    Burgundy is my favorite fall color. I love the way you all styled your burgundy pieces.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Helen. It is rapidly becoming one of my faves too (along with olive green)—now I just need a couple more pieces of it in my closet!!

  • Mother Daughter

    All are great looks. I like and wear burgundy a lot in the fall and winter because I do find it easy to wear.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It definitely is one of those popular colors right now!!
      Thanks for your kind words Victoria!!

  • Burgundy is such a flattering color for most people (you can see this in Nancy’s close up photo). Less ‘alarming’ than red and more chic than purple, it’s a must for everyone’s wardrobe. Jodie, you’ve done a great job of showcasing how burgundy can be worn by anyone and for any occasion.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Man, Rena—I love how you describe the color! I wished I had thought of that!!
      Happy T-Day!!

  • Burgundy and green is a very good mix of colors and burgundy and pink too. Kisses from Italy and thank you for stopping at my blog. I’m very happy for your comment.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Chichi!!

  • Burgundy is my favorite fall color. Love all your burgundy pieces and your ‘girl’ on your scarf is so cute!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m not sure I’ve really had much of this color before—but I have to admit, I’m loving it now!!
      Thanks for stopping by Amy!

  • Stevie Turner

    I love burgundy. My wardrobe heaves with burgundy stuff!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well then you are right on trend Stevie!! I’m thinking I need to add a couple more pieces of the color!!

  • Lovely. Nice to know we don’t have to succumb to dowdiness as we age. I’m a purple fan myself.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well, I’m definitely fighting the fight against dowdy!!
      I have a knitting friend who loves her purple too!! It’s such a royal color—and really goes with all the options we’ve shown too!!
      Thanks so much for your comment, Rochelle!!

  • Burgundy has always been a favorite of mine! All of you look beautiful!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

      Thanks so much Brooke!
      I’m so surprised I haven’t been wearing this color more!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Renee!! We are just now taking Spanish classes so I was so happy to try to translate your comment!!
      Muchas gracias!!

  • Love all these looks. Burgundy goes with more that you think doesn’t it! I think it’s a great colour.

    Gemma x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      No truer words were ever spoken Gemma!! I’m thinking I might need to add some more burgundy to my closet!

  • Anna Marcus

    Jodie, once again, where should i start? Let me say that Charlotte looks stunning, head to toe perfection. I read Jess’s post before yours and can see how you ladies influence each other not just in colour coordination but in accessories, the girl pin is divine. And those boots, no wonder you snatched them, I would too

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Anna!! I’ll forward this comment, so mom can feel great today!!
      I’m certainly not sorry I got these boots—but maybe one of these days I’ll learn some restraint–ha ha!

  • This is absolutely one of my favorite fall shades. Love how versatile a color it is!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Michelle—I am amazed at how it just works for everything!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Lovin’ the burgundy. It just seems to go with so many colors. Isn’t it funny how certain combinations of colors used to be taboo and now we can’t get enough of them. Very pretty selections for your outfits. – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Man, you can say that again Amy!!
      The colors we were told shouldn’t go together is embedded in our brains—but it’s getting easier to break the rules after you see others wearing them!!
      Thanks for the love!!

  • Burgundy is one of my favourite colours to wear. You’ve shown how it works with everyone here.

    I love Nancy’s outfit but I also like your Mom’s boots with it. I’ve always liked grey and burgundy. I consider burgundy a neutral really. It goes with everything.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Maybe we should rename burgundy as our new best friend? Because I really think you’re so right—it goes with everything!!

  • Laura

    I honestly ADORE burgundy! I have a pair of velvet pants I have worn probably over 15 times on the blog now! They go with so many things and they are such a rich color. I haven’t them with soft grey yet though. Your mom’s outfit is inspiring me to try!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I was actually looking at a pair of velvet pants a couple weeks ago, Laura! I have to ask…does the velvet wear off a lot in the thigh area?? I was thinking about that and if I should go with a velvet shirt instead??
      Burgundy is such a fabulous color—now I just need to remember to wear it more!!

      • Laura

        I actually snagged mine for $4 from Goodwill! I haven’t had an issue with the velvet wearing off at this point. I did my post quite a while ago but you can find it here: http://www.idodeclaire.com/2014/10/cost-per-wear-burgundy-pants-10-ways.html You definitely need to wear it more! It’s more versatile than people think!

        • Jodie Filogomo

          And it’s amazing at how velvety they look—well thanks for inspiring me Laura!!

  • Love all of these burgundy looks! Your sweater and booties are so cool Jodie. Nancy looks amazing and Charlotte is absolutely killing it in her skirt. Amazing looks all around!

    xx, Elise

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Elise!!
      I felt like we could have paired almost any color with our burgundy–it’s such a great color!

  • Burgundy is the best!! Love those patterned booties!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jamie!!
      It is quite the versatile color, I must admit!!

  • Judy Gramith

    Like a fine wine…burgundy is such a lovely color and I like it best with warm tones like golds, loden greens, and even
    I like how you’ve done a lot of blues, greys and pinks here. Jessica took care of those warmer tones beautifully. Pale pink gives your stylings a more monochromatic vibe!
    Charlotte is my favorite overall this time around but your booties are really fun Jodie and Nancy’s blouse is so pretty!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It does seem like really almost every color goes so well with burgundy, right?
      I actually was going to use gold in my outfit, but Friday’s post is all about gold, so I thought that would be redundant. But orange—now that would be spectacular!! I may try that for T-day!!

  • Mes Voyages à Paris

    I love burgundy por sure!!!!! you look beautiful!


    Mónica Sors



    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Monica!

  • Burgundy is one of my fave colors for fall…especially for the lips! Your mom is stealing the show with her look. 😉

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Darlene.
      Isn’t mom just so elegant?? Now if only I could figure out that silly blurring part on the bottom of her pictures. I’m thinking it’s the sun’s rays? Photography challenges are so much harder than outfit challenges!!

    • Charlotte Miller

      Thanks so much for your kind words

  • Queen of Rods

    I wouldn’t have been able to resist those shoes either! Wow! Is the light part white or beige? I also love Nancy’s sheer blouse…really feminine and pretty. Your mom’s lilac sweater was an interesting color choice to go with burgundy, and the boots pull the outfit together perfectly. The light gray looks almost lilac in the photos, and the necklace was a fabulous choice to set off the entire outfit 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      My shoes are more of a beige for the light color—I actually had to go check!! They are calf hair, so I worry that they will wear out pretty easy. At least I only paid $20 for them!
      It’s funny you said that about the grey boots. In our other house, I had the walls painted a light grey like this, and my husband always thought it looked lilac (of course we know that men see colors differently—ha ha!!)
      Thanks for such an uplifting comment Janet—I’ll let mom & Nancy read it too!!

  • Oh, I like these combinations! You, girls have styled these items of clothing very thouroughly, it looks very good! And I love the choice of the color, the burgundi is the color of this Fall!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It really is such a rich color for the season, Olya!!
      Thanks for the continued support and positvity!

  • ADA

    You ladies all look scrumptious in burgundy – my favorite shade of Fall. Love the fun booties and the hanging doll/girl pin on your scarf, Jodie. I also love the pin-dot blouse and your mom’s fun colorblocked earrings.

    Happy Tuesday!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Ada!!
      It is such a pretty color—I’m surprised I don’t wear it more often!!

  • I LOVE burgundy– always have, always will. Burgundy is almost a neutral. You gals have chosen colours that look fab with burgundy. Burgundy and green looks so autumnal. Your burgundy scarf adds a pop of colour to the pretty pink sweater, love how you’ve added that cute pin to your scarf. Burgundy paired with blue looks regal. Burgundy with lilac looks so elegant, especially the way Charlotte has styled her outfit with a pencil skirt.

    I have a new burgundy pencil skirt (not in my blog yet) that I paired with black. (Future post coming up in December.)



    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think you’re right Carmen—burgundy is basically a neutral! It’ll be fun to see how you’ve styled yours soon!!
      Thanks for such a wonderful comment—I’ll forward it so the moms can appreciate it!

  • For some strange reason I don’t seem to wear much red, but I think burgundy is a great way to wear this shade. I love the color though and need to add more into my closet!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think it all depends what is trending at the stores for the colors in your closet. Sometimes that’s the great thing about thrifting—they have most colors out all the time!!
      Thanks for stopping by and happy Tuesday!!

  • Hi Jodie, thanks for the collaboration! It was fun. I loved that you chose different articles of clothing in burgundy each and the colors differentf for all 3. Love all 3 color combos, grey and burgundy another favorite. Love your booties and the girl pin on your pretty scarf! I think there are so many rich shades you can pair with burgundy, great post!
    Have a wonderful thanksgiving!
    jess xx

    • Jodie Filogomo

      And thanks to you for coming up with this fabulous theme Jess!!
      I think you’re right–burgundy is such a great color to combine with other colors! And it’ll work far into the winter months too!!
      Happy T-day to you & your hubby & the puppies!!

  • It must be so nice , all these lovely collaborations! Olive and burgundy nis great together, have to try it too!😀Your boots are great!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nancy!! I love trying all different color combinations—-just like your blue & brown!!

  • I know this post is about the burgundy, but can we talk about your boots? Love them! Also love the pink + burgundy, one of my favorite combos 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      These boots—I was totally smitten, Tara. I even went home the first time without them thinking I didn’t need them and I was trying to get money in my pocket instead of spending money! But I went back the next day and bought them—I have no restraint when it comes to fun shoes!!

  • Zorica
    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Zorica!!

  • Nicole Mölders

    Love the new booties

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I love them too—I have quite a few ankle boots already, but most have a heel on them from my working days. Not that I don’t still wear them, but it’s nice to have flats ones for variety!! And for $20—how could I resist??
