As temperatures start to drop across the country—ah yes, East Coasters have already felt the chill of Jack Frost—layers are packed on, heads are beanied, and fingers are mittened. But you don’t have to lose your fashion panache just because we’ve lost the sun.

This winter add some Burgundy to your winter palate.

Call it Port, Cranberry, Rust, whatever! Burgundy is a color too often overlooked, but it’s a perfect compliment to chilly weather and hot cider.  Most websites have a color bar on the side, so if you want to do some browsing, just click open the color closest to burgundy (almost always red) and peruse away.  In the meantime, here are some goodies to get you started.

American Apparel is good for basics.  They have a Burgundy Sleeveless Sheer Chiffon Blouse that features generously cut arm openings and wide neck that will look smashing when you pull off all your top winter layers.

They also have a perfect, form fitting Cotton Spandex Jersey Tube Dress that can be adjusted and transformed into a dress, top or skirt.  It’s the perfect bottom layer to pop out from beneath a sweater and coat. Pair it with a great tan boot and sweater.

Urban Outfitters is a one-stop layering shop.

These Soft Knit Leggings from BDG are cut in a slim fit and tapered through the leg. Great on their own or as a layer:

And if you just want a little pop of Burgundy, layer these Pointelle Over-the-Knee socks over tights and into boots. They’ll provide and extra bit of warmth and their pointelle pattern adds a sweet twist to any outfit.
