What NYC Recessionista Wears: Burgundy and Dots

Yesterday, while on my way to work, I saw two men wearing the same color pants … burgundy!  I guess it’s safe to say that the colored pants trend has crossed gender lines.

I’m not 100% sure that I’m mixing and matching them the right way yet (i.e. with flat motorcycle boots instead of a heeled ankle bootie, etc.), but aren’t our wardrobes always an evolving work in progress?

Normally, I go straight for jewelry that has a really vintage-y feel to it, but I also love these earrings that are a little bit bad-ass.  They’re a decent size for a stud, and are a great everyday earring to add some sparkle to your outfit.

It may not look like it in the photos, but this shirt is navy, not black. I really like pairing navy and burgundy for the fall / winter. It’s such a rich looking color combination.
