There was a time not too long ago when you wouldn’t catch me in an outfit like today’s look. While I might have worn the burgundy pants and definitely would have worn the blazer, wearing them together would have seemed like too much color or too “wild.”
Now, the idea of a burgundy “suit” seems fun. Since burgundy is such a deep shade of red, it has a subtlety that I think works really well for pulling off a colored suit in an office setting.

I kept the shoes burgundy for a clean head-to-toe line and added a black bow-neck blouse for a bit of dark contrast.
I’m not sure that I would wear this outfit as part of my regular rotation, but it’s definitely fun to mix things up a bit and try something new.

Would you wear head-to-toe burgundy?
