Mad About Hue: Cognac
Is there a hue more closely associated with status and prestige than a rich cognac? It makes us think of roaring fires in private reading rooms and after dinner drinks. And just a hint of it takes any outfit to next-level chic.
A cognac coloured ankle bootie is killer with tights and a little black dress. A pair of riding boots in dark caramel is undeniably posh with Jodhpurs and a navy schoolboy jacket. Nothing pairs quite so well with a crisp white shirt as an accessory in the form of a whiskey-tinged handbag or menswear-inspired timepiece. Dial it up to street-style standing with gold accents, of course.
So whether you find yourself in an antique wingback with your butler at your beck and call or you’re spending the winter like the rest of us: running from holiday party to office party and back again, there’s no doubt about it – cognac is for the connoisseurs.
