Fall Colorblocking: Burgundy and Mustard Yellow

Fall Colorblocking:   
Burgundy and Mustard Yellow

Another color combination that I am adding to my fall must-have list is burgundy and mustard yellow.  This is a way to carry summer's colorblock trend into the fall season.  One benefit of this color combo is that wearing burgundy on the bottom can act as somewhat of a neutral in grounding your look.  Additionally, if you wear a deeper tone of mustard, it can function as a neutral in the camel brown/tan family.  Add either black or tan accessories for the perfect fall look.  Welcome, colorblock skeptics!
