How to style fall’s chicest color

Color Story: Cordovan

Fall fashion is synonymous with warm tones and wintry neutrals. From earthy shades of beige and brown to classic black and white, there’s a bevy of options that are easy to wear but can become monotonous in the months leading up to spring. Luckily, there’s an easy way to spice up your ensemble without going too far in the opposite direction. Enter Etienne Aigner’s signature Cordovan color, a rich shade of burgundy with brown undertones that create a universally flattering color that pairs well with everyday neutrals. If you’re stuck on how to style this rich hue, we’re here to help! Try these 3 looks with EA’s collection of cordovan accessories to add an instant dose of color to your fall wardrobe.

Look 1: Day-to-Night

The seasonal turtleneck dress is a closet staple that can easily be dressed up or down. Try this modest midi dress in black, paired with a showstopping shoe in rich cordovan. The Seville bootie is a sleek and sophisticated silhouette that adds a polished touch to take your look from a day at the office to an evening dinner date.

Look 2: Weekend Casual

It’s easy to achieve effortless weekend style with a pair of jeans and ladylike accessories. The Mia shoulder bag comes in a distinctive bucket shape and features the iconic horseshoe logo buckle on smooth cordovan colored leather. The versatile style can be worn with EA’s limited-edition anniversary straps which combine artisanal braided stitching and antique brass hardware in 3 color combinations – all of which pair perfectly with straight leg denim jeans, a casual white button down, and camel coat for a clean and classic look. If you’re a fan of matching accessories, top off your look with the Dylan pump in cordovan suede for a comfortable way to keep you going through Sunday.

Look 3: Office Chic

Mondays aren’t as difficult when you have a chic outfit to wear to the office. The Irena buckle satchel is crafted with handwoven leather and a contrasting smooth leather flap for a polished balance. Wear the ladylike silhouette with a classic midi skirt in fall-friendly plaid that plays off the cordovan color palette. A basic black sweater will top off your outfit for a weekday look you’ll wear all season long.
