Last winter, I wrote a post on Why You Should Wear Red for Christmas. It was less than a style post but more like an online therapy sesh for me. I was surprised from the many comments of support I received. Before my vulnerability was made public, I believed that I wasn’t worthy to wear red. I forced myself to buy a bright red sweater and take photos of it for my blog. A self discovery was made that wouldn’t have happened otherwise. I discovered that I looked good in red and it wasn’t a color I needed to shy away from.
For the longest time, I felt the same way about the color burgundy too. I felt like it wasn’t a color that I could pull off either! However, when I spotted this burgundy vegan pencil skirt with an asymmetrical front slit, I knew I needed to push myself again and try it. Color has such a strong impact on our psyche, right!?! I discovered this berry-shade, wine-inspired color is a fun and on-trend addition to any fall or winter look!
Again, my forced experimentation worked in my favor and I found that I really love the way burgundy looks on my skin-tone. Am I the only person who has complexes with color? LOL! Are there any colors that you feel uncomfortable wearing but would really like to try? If so, I challenge you to try my experiment and share with me your results!
First off, you are a goddess of beauty. Your style, your hair and just your attitude is commendable. I do love the color burgundy, it’s got depth and character. I do have some in my wardrobe but it’s probably time for it to come out this winter. I loved the pictures!
This outfit is so pretty! I am in love with how you styled it. That bracelet and jacket are so amazing!!
burgundy is so perfect for this time of year!
Awww Debbie! So glad you got over your discomfort and rocked red and burgundy! I absolutely LOVE colour and welcome it. Remember – it’s just a colour. Try not to tie to much emotion to it!!
What a beautiful outfit! The color on the skirt is totally gorgeous!
My all time fav color burgundy..and it looks stunning on you.. you have a great styling sense.
I agree, love the colour on you! As for me, I don’t like wearing green. I think it makes me look too yellow LOL!
I totally have complexes with color. Yellow and orange specifically and now that I have very bright hair I find it even harder. But it’s good to push out of our comfort zones and this skirt is beautiful!
Everything about this look is stunning! I am in love with the color of that skirt!!
You’re rocking that outfit! I love how classy it is, it looks like something I could wear to work or just out shopping.
Burgundy is totally your color! You look amazing!
Burgundy is such a great color on you Debbie! You are such a natural beauty and you photograph so well!

The burgundy is a beautiful color and it looks great on you! I feel like I shy away from yellows and oranges unless I have a good tan because I feel like they really clash with my complexion so I understand your color complexes!
This color is so stunning on you!
You are killing it in that burgundy dress and I think it’s perfect for the season! Personally, I shy away from wearing browns because I feel like it clashes with my skintone but I’m going to go ahead and give it a shot!
That skirt is amazing!

I’m obsessed with burgundy! You look great in burgundy too. Love the skirt and shoes. Both super cute.
I am sooooo glad this color is trending, and you look fabulous in it! I don’t have this color represented in my wardrobe; you’ve inspired me to keep a lookout for it in all the after-Christmas sales going on right now. Thanks for being brave and wearing it so well. 🙂
