A pair of burgundy pants will make it much easier to find outfits to wear in the fall and winter. They are comfy and yet add an edge of class, no matter how you pair them! I love that because I want to look put together as a mom with minimum effort and maximum comfort. Are you with me there?

Here's my comprehensive guide on styling burgundy pants as a mom: the outfits, colors, patterns, and shoes to wear with your pair of merlot goodness.

Colors to pair with Burgundy pants

A surprisingly large amount of colors complement burgundy/wine/merlot pants. Just search for "burgundy pants" on Pinterest an you'd be amazed at the variety!

Note that some of the stronger colors (like mustard) work best as accents such as in a cami that's peeking out below your shirt or in a scarf. My favorite way to pair my pants with cognac brown is by wearing my cognac riding boots on errands.

Makeup to wear with Burgundy pants

Phhssst. Like we have the time to change our makeup routine based on what we wear. ;)

But if you are getting ready for a special occasion and wearing your burgundy pants, check out this lovely color palette of neutral browns/taupes/gold. I use it ALL THE TIME. It literally takes me 10 seconds to apply some (maybe 20 seconds if I do 2 or 3 tones) and really takes my makeup to the next level.

How to build a wardrobe that combines well together

Winter outfit ideas for stay at home moms.

The re-mixability of my mom outfits did not happen by accident. I used to be someone who bought clothes almost every month and yet got bored of her outfits. It was like I had a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear! 

Since starting this blog I've learned the keys to creating a highly remixable mom wardrobe on a budget. In essence it comes down to a plan. 

In my Winter Outfit Guide for Stay-at-Home moms I've done all the planning for you. And yes, it includes a pair of burgundy pants! 

I highly recommend this resource if you just want someone to tell you what you need in your wardrobe and how to put the pieces together. The basics of a wardrobe plan are mapped out for you, with plenty of opportunity to change it up to your liking.
