[Color Code: Brava Bordeaux] & [Trendspotter: Monochromatic Bordeaux]

As summer has ended, along comes fall. 
What say you of adopting a tad bit darker hue as this season's it color, say "bordeaux"? 
Sartorially speaking, this rich wine color (or maroon or burgundy or oxblood or whatever it is suits you) has been spotted high and low from the clothing department to the accessories and beauty department (since the last two seasons If I'm not mistaken).

*click to enlarge* add more drama and fun,
what say you of incorporating this bold shade in a monochromatic modus-operandi?   
Cos' the epitomes of this head-to-toe bordeaux have indeed walked the earth and radiates none but chic
The hint to this head-to-toe bordeaux look is to finish up with neutral accessories, like the non-colors black-gray-white or brown, in order to keep the spotlight on the monochrome.
However, it's never a crime to experiment in fashion.  For you who are still in transition from colorful summer, here's an inspi from Hanneli Mustaparta with her signature burgundy-blue color combi

This bordeaux color is certainly starting to grow on me, gotta stock up on this season must-haves in this shade.  What say you?
