Burgundy Cowl Neck

Burgundy Ann Taylor sweater, Ann Taylor crepe black skirt

Hello Ladies

Today I am wearing one of my thicker cowl neck sweaters you only get to wear when it is Brrrrrr really cold outside here in Charlotte.

Going through a cold spell here, under freezing temps, I decided it was time to bring out my cozy thick burgundy sweater I received a few Christmases ago from Ann Taylor. I love this color and all variations of oxblood. Maroon, burgundy, and similar shades has been a favorite color of mine for the past few years, and seems popular every year. If I feel a bit risque, ( yes, that’s me!) I can wear this sweater off the shoulder. Otherwise, I like the deep cowl neck look with this sweater, the longer length, and the ribbed texture. I wanted to pair this with my black flirty skirt I wore a week or so ago, and decided to add my girly touch with my burgundy bow squared toed shoes.

Along with this color being a favorite, I must confess I love shoes with bows. or flowers. Mostly bows. I see the high heels with bows that I would love to wear, so I compromise and buy pointed flats with bows or these patent leather shoes I found this year on Ebay. I think it is the feminine touch of the bow that appeals to me.

Do you have many maroon, burgundy or oxblood items of clothing in your closet? What appeals to you about this color? Also, as a reader, would you be interested in a post on makeup for fair skin? I have my favorites and want to know who would like this as a topic?

Have a great day!

Jess xo

    Jess, I love this rich wine color on you, It is so saturated and plays well with your hair color. Love the balck skirt and filigree earrings, too.
    I do love that shade, maybe because I love to drink wine!
    I would love a post of how to make up a face when one is pale!

      Hi Alice!

    I love burgundy too even though for some reason I dont wear it that much….(need to change that), I think it looks great on you and I love the belted coat. By the way you always have the best earrings and these are beautiful as usual. Looking great Jess!

      Thanks Megan, yes I have always been a fan of the cowl neck. If it was warmer, I would wear this off the shoulder, it lends itself to both looks. Be buy ti check out yours! xx

    Burgundy colour is very nice! A more reason for wearing it in cold season is that goes perfect with camel…your sweater is lovely as well as your flats!

    This is a beautiful cowl neck. It flatters your figure well. I love the length too. Looks great with a skirt and I bet with jeans as well.

    I always love burgundy on a redhead.

    I can’t really follow other people’s makeup tips since I suffer from rosecea. Very sensitive skin.

    Such a great color for you and I love the cowl neck. It is fun to hear the way you can “play” with your sweater and become a femme fatale if you wish by exposing a tiny part of yourself. I recently wrote about the notion of reveal and conceal and clothing that helps you do that. This sweater gets added to the list.
