If your affinity for colour mixing is relatively high, combining eggplant with burgundy is a walk in the park. Finish off the look with grey footwear and bag, and you’re good to go. Add blue or grey jeans to the mix if adding a second neutral will make you feel more comfortable with the palette.
Combine burgundy and eggplant in any way at all. Silver footwear will work as well as grey. If you don’t have grey or silver footwear, think cognac, taupe, burgundy, eggplant or dark brown. Black will work when you bookend the look with black hair. Think both in solids and patterns. Here are two renditions to get you started.
Burgundy Bottoms, Eggplant Top and Grey Accents
Pair burgundy jeans or trousers with an eggplant top. Add grey boots and bag, and a grey, burgundy or eggplant topper. Add a scarf in the same palette. I’ve shown a casual combination, but by all means make it business casual.
Eggplant Bottoms, Burgundy Top and Grey Accents
Combine an eggplant skirt with a burgundy blouse or sweater, and add grey boots and bag. Sheer black or grey hosiery is a good match for this palette. Add a purple or dark red blazer as a third piece, and/or a topper in grey, burgundy or eggplant. Add jewellery, eyewear, scarves, belts, watch and headgear as desired.
Feel free to pair a burgundy dress with a purple cardigan. Or a grey dress with a purple cardigan and burgundy bag. Get those creative juices flowing and play dress-up in your closet.
