September is RED Hot!

Or should I say more of a Burgundy? One of the most obvious color trends that I have noticed for Fall 2012 has been the Burgundy, Deep Berry, and Wine colors.  It's a great way to work color into your wardrobe without being too loud.  The deeper tones of red can really suit any skin tone and work with any other Fall colors.

BURBERRY Full Skirt Tweed Coat

My BIGGEST obsession when it comes to the burgundy look has been this Burberry Tweed Coat.  It's the perfect blend of the tweed trend and classic color.  It's definitely important to pick out trends that you can work into future seasons, so a big investment like this coat is a classic cut and style enough to work for every Fall and Winter season.

Shoes are also a great way to rock the Burgundy color trend for the season, and these are the sexiest pairs I have found for some inspiration.  I have been obsessed with the Penny Loafer style, being appropriate for work or play.  Pair the classic pump with a pant suit or some jeans and you'll definitely bring up your look to a whole new level.  Also, you can never go wrong with a strappy sandal.  I would love to pair these heeled sandals with a pair of black opaque tights and a dress for that city girl look.

Don't want to wear sky high heels or colored coats? Work the trend into your accessories and pick up a beautiful burgundy bag.  Fall/Winter bags are all about the darker tones and bigger, structured, totes.

Obviously all of these selected items are way out of my (and everyone else's) budget, but take thema ll as an inspiration and challenge to find much more affordable options.
