In last week’s post where I went behind the scenes with one of my clients, Ms. Chic, you probably saw that styled a lot of her looks with burgundy shoes.  It’s pretty incredible how versatile shoes in this color can be, no matter what style they are.  Given their versatility, I thought it would be helpful to do a post on what to wear with burgundy shoes.  Take a look at the outfits featuring this very wearable shoe color below.

What to Wear with Burgundy Shoes

Outfit #1- Burgundy Pumps

Looking for a shoe color that can add some sophisticated pop to a look?  Try burgundy.  Here I styled these burgundy pumps from Via Spiga with this chic dress from Reiss in taupe.  The outfit is further accessorized with a clutch from BCBG, bangles from Nadri and chandelier earrings by Lauren Ralph Lauren.

Outfit #2- Burgundy Flats

You can get so much wear from a basic pair of burgundy flats, all while making your outfits more fun.  Here, I styled this pair from Nordstrom with a pair of navy skinny pants from Theory and layered a chambray shirt underneath this oatmeal sweater from Loft.  I finished the look with an orange crossbody bag, earrings from Modcloth and printed scarf from Lulla Collection by Bindya.

Outfit #3- Burgundy Booties

Love booties, but are sick of your black or brown pairs?  Try burgundy.  Believe it or not, you will probably just get just as much wear out of them.  Here, I styled this pair by Rockport with a pair of bootcut jeans by Luck Brand, a basic white v-neck tee from Boden, a tobacco colored blazer from J.Crew and accessorized with a link necklace from Max & Chloe, plaid blanket scarf from La Florentina and cognac bag from Calvin Klein.

Outfit #4- Burgundy Oxfords

Burgundy oxfords can also be very versatile shoes to own.  They will easily work with most pants colors, and in this outfit you can see how I styled these oxfords from Andre Assous with a pair of dark green cords.  For the rest of the look, I added this slim white button down tunic, long gold pendant from Rebecca Minkoff and tan handbag from Halogen.

Outfit #5- Burgundy Shoes After Five

The last place to consider wearing burgundy shoes is with your formal and cocktail wear.  Imagine how much more exciting that little black cocktail dress or long gown will be with this rich pop of color.  And check out how pretty these burgundy heels from Kay Unger look styled with this teal strapless dress from J. Crew.  To finish the outfit I added this floral clutch from Jessica McClintock and hammered bib necklace from Kenneth Jay Lane.

The next time you are shopping for, skip that umpteenth pair of black shoes and consider burgundy shoes instead.  You’ll be amazed by how versatile they are.
