Burgundy tunic dress

Burgundy tunic dress and poncho

I have completely fallen in love with this colour. It is a beautiful rich shade of burgundy (yes I am also fond of a good burgundeon wine). It has a touch of brightness which is very flattering. I find some burgundy/wine tones can be a bit flat. This merino wool dress has faux leather patch pockets and is from one of my favourite brands winserlondon. It is also available in charcoal and black. With the addition of bold statement jewellery the black would be ideal for evening. They do ship internationally. (Your will have to hurry as free international shipping offer closes today).

I find that sometimes knit dresses can be a bit clingy round the bum. This style has a tailored appearance and is very comfortable. The gentle A line shape is flattering on the hips. I am wearing mine as a tunic with the Winserlondon miracle leggings.  I am quite tall so like this look. The tunic covers my knees and keeps me extra warm.

This is the second Winserlondon reversible cape  in my wardrobe. I have a lovely light blue one for summer. They are so useful. You can quickly drape them round a dress, jacket or coat for added warmth and glamour. In the photos I have worn the cape showing both the burgundy and black sides. Two looks for the price of one.

    What a beautiful tunic! Just love the colour. I’m wondering if the pockets could be removed? I’m 5’3″ and have always found that any details at hip level make you look wider across that area.

      Hi Bea
      I have had a good look and the pockets are firmly stitched into the seam so I think it would be difficult. It does come in black and charcoal where the pockets do not contrast so much. I am pear shaped and so have to be a bit careful on the hips. However the pockets on this dress don’t seem to sit on the widest part of my hips.

        Thanks so much for your prompt reply and for checking out those seams! It’s a gorgeous shade and so flattering for grey haired gals!

      Thank you all for your kind comments. It is not a colour I have worn for some years but have grown to love it this season.
