If I made a list of my least favorite colors, burgundy (bordeuax, maroon, port, whatever you want to call it!) would be near the very top of it. It’s just not my color, you know what I mean? It has never looked good on me (various shades of red usually don’t). However, this image from Candice Lake just might have me rethinking my stance on the color. She looks so chic! I’m all about tonal dressing this fall, and, I have to admit, head-to-toe burgundy isn’t looking so bad. I actually like it. I am making it a vow to get out of my color rut and make a solid attempt at burgundy  this season. What do you think? Are there any colors out of your norm that you might be willing to try for fall?
