Burgundy for winter

This article was published in +977 (a Nepalese Lifestyle Magazine in Australia) in August-September 2013 issue.


Burgundy is the new black and it is a great way to add colour during cold winter days and move away from boring black and grey. Fashionistas are calling the colour oxblood but you can call it wine coloured, maroon, claret or just plain burgundy  and it is back in season.

From coats to dresses, from skirts to socks, burgundy gives your style the special touch and it is such a beautiful colour. Age does not matter because burgundy flatters from young to old. Sex doesn’t matter either because both men and women can wear this colour and look fashionable.  The colour can be worn with almost any piece of apparel. In addition, it is a great colour for transition phase between winter and spring. This colour can be easily used from top to toe and here are some of the amazing pieces.

How to wear burgundy?

  • Pair your burgundy with a lighter piece from the same colour family, like pastel pink or pale rose.
  • Mix burgundy pieces with luxe prints like brocades, paisleys, silk stripes for a regal look.
  • For work, use burgundy as a neutral and mix with colours like charcoal grey and olive.
  • Wear with a piece in a sheer fabric so that it reads more lightweight.
  • Pair your faded jeans look with plain burgundy cotton tops.
  • Wear burgundy lip colour with brown pencil eyeliner and gold eye shadow or brown mascara and liquid gold eyeliner.

Colour your wardrobe this winter

This article was published in +977 (a Nepalese Lifestyle Magazine in Australia) in July-Aug 2012 issue.

Winter in Sydney is really cold this year and in this cold weather, your coat is the most important item in your wardrobe. I know it can be really dull to see only grey and black coats everywhere but you don’t need to be one of them. With some smart colour choices, it is very easy to brighten up your day.

If you are wearing single toned dress or black trouser and top, enliven it with a bold colour coat. The colours that are “in” this winter are mustard, dark purple and red. If you are wearing a dress, a colourful stocking, a colourful scarf, bold jewelleries or a colourful bag will definitely polish up your look. There is also the option of going with colourful jeans. Invest in some colourful clothing and you won’t have to worry about drab winters anymore.
