Sure I love a good glass of rouge for drinking, but wearing it is something even more (fashionably) intoxicating. The classic hue has always been my go-to alternative to black for fall and winter. Even though Hong Kong’s still-steamy weather showing no signs of cooling down yet, one can always kick things off in her own way, right?
To me it is nothing like a wine-coloured piece or two to get you into the wintry mood, and making that long-awaited cuppa mulled wine something to look forward to. When certain black-coloured piece doesn’t quiet making an impact, and I still want something long-lived on the colour front, a deep red hue is always my second best friend. Burgundy (or bordeaux, oxblood, maroon, whatever you like to call it) is just as easy to wear as black, and a forever-classic hue to add to any chic fall wardrobe (even a non-colour person one). I know I can always turn to the sophisticated shade to instantly polish up my ensembles – whether it is in the style of clothing or accessories. It just has that bossy power to make things look more refined than they already are. Agree?
