MWD: HOW TO WEAR BURGUNDY

31.08.14

Though its scant ended, summer feels like an all too distant memory already. And, as we hurtle towards the end of the year - and into another season in fashion - the concerns of the most stylish men have turned to matters sartorial. Alongside key styles and fabrics, as ever, we've carefully selected the most desirable colours to champion for AW14 (we've already marked out grey as one of the season's key colours). However, in week's menswear diaries, we make the case for the season's unashamedly rich hue; and show you how to wear burgundy.

Few colours can lay claim to the unique set of sartorial virtues held by burgundy. Simultaneously striking and subtle, the hue combines a bold richness with a quietness of manner, in short it's ideal for making a statement while remaining tasteful.

It's for this unique set of characteristics that we've chosen to back the colour as one of AW14 menswear's defining looks. Whether on shirting, suiting or relaxed off-duty pieces, burgundy has never felt more relevant than now.

Below we guide you through how to incorporate the season’s most striking shade into all manner of looks, and - we’re sure you’ll agree - the stylish options are endless.
