It’s one of my favorite color combinations – bordeaux and blue.  Most people wouldn’t think of pairing the two colors together, and yet, it works. Really works. A bright pop of sky blue just adds something special to rich, warm bordeaux hues. Don’t get me wrong, a strictly monochromatic pairing, featuring all bordeaux would be very chic, but it was fun shaking things up a bit with something unexpected, at least from me. My cropped, cable-knit sweater – an old favorite – works perfectly with my short torso and means there’s much less fabric for me to have to tuck into my Marc Jacobs high-waisted cords. Love how the  blue of the sweater compliments the bordeaux pants. Definitely one of my favorite pairings.

How do you feel about this color combination? Have you tried it yourself?
