Burgundy and blue: a combination that works

Sometimes colour trends are dependent on groupings. A colour in isolation may be considered on-trend, but when set against a particular combination, the power is magnified tenfold.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person.
