Versatile Style by Tracey


Posted on: October 25, 2016

I have worn Burgundy a lot of the last few seasons and my love for it is still strong. 

It’s a color that is still trending for this Fall. 

Can you believe a few years ago they tried to rename this Oxblood ? 

So many bloggers got on board with it, but I stayed strong in not being 

sucked into that, as it never sat right with me.   

After a fun weekend with my son home from college, Saturday &  Sunday bowling and Football, and waking up with the first sinus headache I’ve had in several months (since beginning Tumeric) ,

I decided to just find a selection of ways I have worn this fabulous Fall shade. 


Why not start off with my favorite very spunky look pairing a dress with leopard blazer 

and let’s not forget Burgundy fun boots.  


These are leggings with a grey tunic and sweater. 

You’ll notice I love burgundy and grey together.

I still get tickled pink every time I see this vintage Aigner purse I thrifted .  


Since the pants had burgundy dots,  this was a no brainer, 

and how fun is a floppy hat? 


Apparently, I love it with navy too. 


See I told you , Grey striped jacket and plaid grey heels, 

These Old Navy joggers were passed on to my niece who also adores the color burgundy 


These burgundy paisley embossed cords are my best deal ever 

I found them online at JCP a few years ago for just $8 and have worn them a lot. 

I also scored them in forest green and adore them just as much. 


See wearing them again, here with a pink utility jacket.

Speaking of utility jackets, I bought one for my niece over the summer and when

Jane had them back again, I bought myself one too.

I love utility jackets and now own 4!


A look around Christmas in a thrifted sweater dress.

Wish I was this weight again!!!!!


It really is nice when paired with tan ,  isn’t it? 


Another grey and Burgundy look. 

I thrifted this fun striped poncho and love it 

but just put it in to pass on to my friend;s daughter who is just ten 

as it’s short enough that it will work for her. 


The leggings again with my ruffle grey cardigan,

I have to lose weight as the arms on this cardi are tight and I can’t

see myself giving that up.

Teal and Burgundy, Winter Outfit, Over 40 Style., Burgundy Pants:

A surprise pairing it with teal, I loved this combo.

Alas, this thrifted poncho is headed to a friend soon , 

as I bought a reversible open version in a similar shade and don’t need both. 

Celebrating 23 years of Marriage!:

Another skinny version of myself, to remind me that 

I need to get my butt in gear!  

This burgundy moto was among my first moto jacket purchases from F21. 

I had never shopped there before and was surprised at how much I was missing. 

IMG_2538 Burgundy Cords and Chambray Over 40 Pettie Blogger Weight Watcher:

If burgundy works with Navy , then of course a lighter shade in chambray

will too!  

Burgundy & Snakeskin Over 40 Petite Blogger Weight Watcher Accidental Homeschooling Mom:

Yet another version with grey in the snakeskin thrifted shirt-dress. 

I swear I am going to lose enough to get back into that dress which I refuse to give up! 

Polk a dots and Paisley Burgundy Paisley Corduroy Skinnies Over 40 Petite Blogger:

I bought that sweater at the same time as the pants off season 

clearance shopping at Jcp online. 

That’s my favorite way to shop and I am looking forward to wearing my off season buys for 

Fall and Winter now that our temps are cooling off and cooperating.  

Burgundy and Leopard, Over 40 Fashion, Winter Outfit:

How about ending with another leopard combo?  

Last year I bought this black turtleneck sweater and with those 

being a trend for the season I added a few more.  

Dear Readers, Do you love the Burgundy color for FALL? 

Do you have a favorite of my outfits?  

Or a favorite combo you wear with burgundy?  

I love comments and hearing from you!

Wow—well I have a couple of burgundy pieces, but definitely not as many as you Tracey!! 🙂
I love the variations you’ve shown with these color combinations!
I can’t even say a favorite, but I will say the teal was a surprise—what a great thought!

I can’t really pick a favorite, loved all combinationset. I have bought 2 burgundy tops this season & I have my eye on a pair of burgundy skinny jeans at JCP…waiting for them to go on sale. I will wear my chambray shirt w/them after seeing your post, and something leopard! Thanks for the inspiration 😊

Thanks for letting me know that I have inspired you, every bloggers dream!

I checked JCP today & the Stylist burgundy jeans were on sale for 19.99! I would have never paid $48….can’t wait to wear them!

Great, I love getting things on my wish list for a good price.

Okay, you’ve convinced me…I need more burgundy in my life! Love all your thrifted finds!!

Have fun thrifting Burgundy! I use to go thrifing every week. It became too much, so now I pace myself and only go once in awhile.

Thanks! I’m taking a group of ladies on a ‘thrift tour’ in a couple of weeks. I plan on just finding them treasures…

Lovely collection of one of my favourite colours! My love for burgundy began in the ’60s. Always a warm, rich colour. We also called it bordeaux (French for burgundy).
