I love a good seasonal cliché. Pastels for spring, floral dresses for summer, burgundy and plaid for fall: yes please. I strongly believe that these cliché's have grown organically out of humanity's need to harmonize with nature. Not that I believe in evolutionary psychology, but it's kind of fun to think of the whole fashion bloggers wearing burgundy, mustard or moss green for fall hype as a remnant of our days living in the wild and trying to camouflage ourselves from predators.
I just wear it because it looks really good on my increasingly Snowwhite adjacent colouring, almost bringing out a subtle violet undertone in my hair. Especially when I pair it with deep red lipstick, my current favourite make up product. I've been actually thinking of grabbing some burgundy hair dye to give my hair a subtly different tint, but that might be a bit much, no? I should know better by now than to make rash decisions when it comes to my hair.
BTW everyone always compliments me on my plaid shirt, so I make it a habit to tell them they can buy it for next to nothing on Sheinside here (also available in blue/green). Be sure to measure up if you want that oversized fit, we're talking Asian sizes here! I've had it for over a year and it's a great shirt, good quality and a lovely warm flannel so I can't recommend it enough.
