Mandy showed off this straightforward look a few weeks ago and it nails that curated fall flawless that makes go weak in the knees. The outfit has a minimalist overall in terms of silhouette and color choices, but delivers big impact through her use of one special statement piece: those burgundy suede OTK’s. Burgundy is all over fashion right now and it’s an amazing shade for fall, marrying the warmth of red with the darkness of black for a color that’s both luxurious and cozy. It pairs well with most jewel tones, as well as with neutrals, as Mandy has done here. Make her outfit cool-weather-ready by going with a long-sleeved tee or sweater if your current weather forecast indicates it :). Feel free to do ivory or beige instead of icy white; I gravitate toward warmer neutrals in the colder months. If you own burgundy boots, slide them over your favorite black skinnies and ..poof!...you’re fabulous. Then again, maybe you’re like me and feel that burgundy boots – especially OTK boots – are a bit bold for your personal style. I also think they have somewhat of a limited shelf life and could look dated in a few years, something to keep in mind if you’re considering investing in a pair. To keep this same theme with more versatile piece, swap to burgundy denim (or corduroy) on the bottom. In a pant, burgundy is classic enough to be less risky and well worth investing in, even if your personal style is more sedate than Mandy’s dramatic flair. Finish with black OTK’s for that requisite “pop!”. (Note: if you go with cords, choose leather boots over suede as the textures of suede and corduroy will be visually quite similar, whereas the smooth leather will contrast nicely.). Finish off with a fierce and/or chic accessory: an on-trend saddle bag or star earrings.
