Let’s begin by attempting to define the undefinable. What color are burgundy bridesmaid dresses really? Burgundy is a tone that can be hard to match as many designers and retailers have their own take on the wine-colored hue. But here’s our understanding of burgundy (and its very close neighbors). Burgundy itself is generally a darker-hued red. Maroon is similar but mixed with a bit of purple or brown tone. And wine is dark red and skews toward purple.
So that’s the bad news — it’s hard to match. But the good news? Tonal dressing is VERY in and always comes across as chic and stylish. Different tones of burgundy can totally work together to create something great. Of course, this is also a color that doesn’t need mismatching. A good rule of thumb for matching color perfectly is to shop for different pieces from the same brand or designer.
We LOVE this deep red, especially in the winter and fall months. The color itself represents sophistication, power, and beauty. And if in the end burgundy isn’t best for you, check out all our round-ups of the most stunning bridesmaid dresses by color.
