Street Style: Tatiana, Burgundy Madness

December 24, 2011  |  Individuals, River North, Streetstyle, Trends

I took this photo a few months ago back when I was playing with camera angles. Tatiana and jaw-dropping beauty and understated yet luxurious style made her an easy subject for my lens to practice different background framing techniques. She was very gracious to work with!

I know I’ve made this point several times on my blog: the Fall/Winter 2011-12 season is all about burgundy pants. Not only did the style analysts at Gap identify this as a dominant trend in the collections, both Christine of My Style Pill and myself have been rocking the burgundy Gap corduroys all fall. I even did a whole post about the trend. Tatiana provides more evidence that burgundy is the pants color of the season.

I would also like to note that Tatiana’s monogrammed Louis Vuitton bag works well with her look. Normally I despise all handbags that are swathed in logo monogram prints regardless of the designer. I find it tacky and just plain ugly. But here, some unexplainable quantum physics paradox is at play because I actually like how this bag looks in the context of her outfit. Just goes to show you, never say never!


  1. I agree, the burgundy pants and LV bag are cool, not to mention that stunning drapey vest!

  2. She is the perfect subject! And I've seen the maroonish pants worn in some awful ways, but she does it just beautifully. lovely photo

  3. Burgundy is new black, love it so much!


  4. Tatiana is yummy…

  6. I would literally ahve to resist the urge to tackle her if I saw her walking down the street… In a good way, though. (???)

    The maroon-and-brown combo is perfection. You hit it on the head, Amy – Tatiana is stunningly beautiful! Such a great shot.

    Hope you had a very merry Christmas!
