What's YOUR Favourite Fall Colour?
One of the colours that sings fall is burgundy. It returns every season, refreshed and renewed. Fashion folk prefer to call it oxblood because it sounds more dramatic (and many of us have a penchant for drama). From our oversized sweaters to our lipstick, burgundy is always the best choice because the alternatives are usually grey, black, or greige (aka boring). It's a colour that everyone associates with this season and I am about to tell you why. Prepare to have your mind blown because I have made a list of 10 things that burgundy reminds me of.
Yes, you can have red wine all year long. In fact, they say it's good for the soul, or perhaps the heart (one of the two). Red wine reminds us of romantic evenings with our significant other cuddling under blankets and simply enjoying life. Red wine is sophisticated and fall is the season of sophistication with conservative clothing and leather boots.
Yes, fire is a brighter shade of red, but in a certain light, the colour alters. What says winter better than a cozy fireplace with a hot chocolate in hand?
In the fall, leaves turn burgundy. That's the original reason we wear burgundy. You can stop reading now. Just kidding.
Roses are another romantic symbol and fall is mating season. We may all be depressed about the colder weather, but it gives us an excuse to cozy up with someone for body heat. Love is in the air, no?
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it is probably a part of your life since the music starts playing before you can say Halloween. Most of the time, Christmas sweaters are burgundy, and even when we don't receive any, we feel that desire to buy one and throw it on for comfort.
Cherries are known to be a very seductive fruit and we are drawn to cherries primarily because of their colour. Who doesn't love a rich red healthy fruit?
Grapes are another great fruit to have in the fall. Take this opportunity to switch from green to purple for a more luxurious feel.
Red Velvet Cupcakes
Planning a party to celebrate fall? Red velvet cupcakes are a perfect way to keep up with the theme. In our depressive states, we need delicious cupcakes to cheer us up.
Redheads are rare and therefore, everyone wants hair just like them. Fall is a month of experimentation, so why not try the new oxblood trend on your hair?
I know. It's gross. However, the thought of your blood rushing from exciting new experiences is definitely not.
What is your favourite fall colour? Are you going to be sporting burgundy this season?
