3 Girls 1 Item: Color Scheme Dream

Fashion By Committee

You know it, you love it- that’s right, it’s time for another installment of “3 Girls, 1 Item”!


One of our favorite wardrobe workhorses is the color gray. As the middle child between stark white and severe black, this easy going shade plays well with everything. We here at FBC love it so much, we decided to play matchmaker and pair it up with another much beloved color of ours: burgundy. Read on to discover how this perfect union made a significant impact on our lives (or at least our outfits)!


If you’re looking for a small dose of color with a big splash of class to amp up your weekend look, Jess recommends pairing your favorite knock around jeans/loafers combo with a cozy infinity scarf and structured tweedy blazer.

Now, that’s a brunch look if we ever saw one (and trust us, we know brunch).


Emily knows the best way to make a work look werk (and monopolize the water cooler talk at the same time) is to elevate your monochromatic basics with an unstoppable pair of tasseled knee-high boots.

Betcha they didn’t teach you that in business school.


And for those of you who are looking at all of this and saying, “Gee, that’s nice and all, but you know what I’d really like? MOAR gray and burgundy!”, simmer down because you are Jeanne’s kind of people. For those seeking the fully immersive experience, why not try pairing your favorite burgundy sweater with a dreamy dove gray knit skirt?

Oh, and bonus points if you just happen to have a scarf that coordinates perfectly.


So, no matter the impact you’re looking for, burgundy and gray pack the perfect one-two punch!
