Adding one suit to your wardrobe that is wedding, drinks & party ready is worth the investment — so go with a wine colored hue that can pull triple duty. Over the past few years the burgundy suit has been a red carpet staple & even if you’re not accepting any awards, the deep saturated suit is a an unexpected flash of style.

A burgundy suit may not work in the traditional corporate environment but, with a few tweaks you could crush the office and then head to a gala afterwards (the latter might not happen, maybe you could crash one).

  • Opt for a mini check or a black & white bengal striped shirt. A stark white shirt is too formal
  • Adding knit tie keep gives this look more personality and adds a casual vibe. Stripes are optional, but, their a well-received suggestion

Pattern Play

You’re taking a style risk by rocking a burgundy suit, so don’t be afraid to add more flash with a micro pattern shirt. Why do micro patterns work? From far away, the pattern looks solid and they’re not too “in your face”. 

  • This look is great for an evening party, so ditch the tie
  • Colors are key. Navy, tan, oliver green & red should be your go to choices

Take a cue for the 70’s and rock a turtleneck sweater with this suit, but, be sure to lighten up your color palette. The tan sweater is a neutral contrast to the rich burgundy of the suit and complements the buttons and shoes almost perfectly. 

  • Maximalism is key! Go all the way and add some gold accessories to this look (i.e., gold watch). 
  • A pair of blonde tortoise shades keeps the look sleek and festive without being costumey
