The color of Fall: Burgundy

I've read a lot of stuff lately that suggests burgundy will be the hot color for Fall... I'm not a big fan of burgundy on my skin, but it's a beautiful color. It reminds me of some of the maple trees where I grew up:
There are some great burgundy yarns for sale... It seems like a more common color for yarn lines. Tosh has a great colorway called blackcurrant that I could absolutely see myself wearing, actually:
It's beautiful. I love the idea of pairing burgundy with unexpected colors, too. Burgundy and hot pink?
I like the idea of this color with a sky blue, too:

 Or you could always go traditional with it...:

 What do you guys think? Will you be joining the burgundy bandwagon, or are you finding yourself drawn to other colors for the season? I'm a big fan of deep teal colors around this time of year...

  1. I'm probably the wrong person to ask, I love teal all year round...

    That blackcurrant yarn is gorgeous.

    1. I've got a serious yarn jones for it... Trying to figure a way to sneak it into my rotation... A hat, perhaps?

  2. I'm totally on the burgundy bandwagon. I love red and can only wear reds with lots of blue in them. Now to figure out what to do with the burgundy in my own stash... :)
