A GOOD DROP: THE BURGUNDY TREND

29 March 2017

Shades of burgundy are on point in men’s style for A/W17 - and it’s easy to see why. Burgundy is a bold hue that adds life to neutral. It’s a worthy step change from go-to navy, beige and black – but even better, it still works with them all.

Whether you add a hint of rich burgundy to your look – like a tie or pocket square – or hero it with a blazer or bomber, it’s a no-brainer style move as the rugged weather rolls in.

Here’s how it’s done.

AW17 How To Wear Burgundy Trend

 

THE DINNER JACKET

In a deep shade of plum, our slim fit Vincente printed velvet dinner jacket is a sleek way to add a regal touch to your black tie look.

 

THE BLAZER

Looking to move on from your go-to navy blazer? Here’s how. Pair our Webb blazer with a geo-print shirt. The windowpane check guarantees suave from business to bar.

 

THE SHIRT

Sure, a high-shine burgundy shirt may seem like a bold move but when you keep the rest of your outfit simple the result is enviable fashion-forward style. 

 

THE BOMBER

The ultimate in versatility, our Felton bomber boasts a reversible design – neutral navy one side, on trend burgundy on the flip side. Navy trims add polished finish to this weekend staple. 

 

THE KNIT

A lighter take on this rich hue – our waffle knit Spence knit will take you through the weekend. Hero it over chinos or denim or layer under a jacket.

THE CHINO

Add a punch of colour below the belt with our slim fit Mansell stretch chino in brick to give neutral jackets and shirts a lift.

 

THE TIE

Here’s where burgundy’s versatility comes into play.  Plain, patterned or textured, style our burgundy ties with charcoal, grey, navy and pretty much anything else.

 

THE BOW TIE

Because a Black Tie dress code doesn’t always require a black bow tie. So have some fun with this royal hue - if you're feeling bold, play with pattern and texture.

 

THE SCARF

A highlight stripe adds warmth to this navy and burgundy spliced scarf. Think of it as an easy way to play with this trending shade without over committing. Lightweight, luxe and ideal for layering.

 

Go on. What are you waiting for? Give your wardrobe a little punch.
