Rich like red velvet. Bold but understated at the same time. It’s been called oxblood, maroon, and just plain old burgundy.  I prefer the chic, sophisticated BORDEAUX like the perfect glass of red wine.  There’s something about this sweet jewel tone that makes it effortlessly stand out, and lately, this color makes me want to wear it from head to toe.  The jumpsuit made going monochromatic super easy.  I stuck with that for the most part, but since it’s gotten a bit chillier, I decided to layer my favorite camel vest and grabbed my go-to leopard clutch to pull it all together.  This look can easily take you from the office to happy hour, from brunch to the theater, from the art gallery to dinner…YOU NAAAAME IT! (Ha! I couldn’t resist.)

Acoording to Q, monochromatic looks are super easy to achieve.  Stick with one non-black color from head to toe (hint: a jumpsuit is a great way to achieve this).  Choose layers and accessories to season and add a little flavor. Voila!

Cheers to colors that make a statement and monochromatic looks that make you feel like a boss!
