Fashion Friday: Maroon

Fashion Friday: Maroon

It’s official. The new hot color of the season is maroon. Maroon is making a head-to-toe hit for many reasons.

First of all, it’s been a while since we’ve seen maroon in fashion. Other colors and trends have been recycled time and again, but maroon has kept a low profile for decades.  I haven’t seen maroon since my Guess jeans in high school (and I’m about to go to my 20 year high-school reunion!) So the time has come.  Now I’m ready for a pair of Current/Elliot wineberry waxed skinny jeans or a pair of Paige jeggings in mulberry.

Second, it’s a universal shade and will easily befriend other fashion favorites like grey, black and navy (which are not going away any time soon.)  Maroon is a perfect new compliment to your closet’s basics.  To update a pair of last year’s grey jeans, add an Elizabeth and James maroon silk blouse or spice up a navy dress with a maroon belt and tights.

Finally, a maroon accessory solves the age-old question of black versus brown. Ta-dah! It goes with both.  Marc by Marc Jacobs has the perfect maroon cross body bag and Gillian Julius has created a maroon crystal bracelet that will work with all your fall ensembles. While we’re on the subject of arm candy, dress your nails in maroon as well!

So whether you rock out to Maroon 5 this fall with hit song “Pay Phone” or rock a maroon leather jacket from our boutique, Two Skirts, in Telluride– you’ll be on the right track to feeling like a super star.
