Maroon is a classic Autumnal color and brings about feelings of nostalgia for me.
My family always bought me maroon clothes growing up. Not because I liked the color (I did not back then), but because they thought it looked great on me. Now that I am older, I can’t get enough of it. I have fair skin and dark brown hair so maroon is a nice juxtaposition. Every Fall, I look forward to donning something maroon from my wardrobe.
I’ve actually had this dress for a few years now. I was always too self-conscious to wear it because of the deep scoop neckline. Members of the IBTC will feel my pain here. Now that I am older, I refuse to let the opinions of others sway me from wearing things I like. Afterall, fashion is self-expression.
Since this is a no-frills dress, I wanted to draw attention to the neckline, so I opted to go without jewelry. You could dress it up a bit with some earrings, but I wanted to focus on the simple elegance of the dress. I accessorized with one of my favorite purses that is also simple and chic.
After NYFW S/S18, Pantone released a color palette based on colors designers were using the most. Funny enough, there is a shade fairly similar to maroon in there: Tawny Port. So it looks like maroon might be sticking around this Spring as well! No complaints here.
What is one color you won’t give up this season?
