5 Colors You Can Use To Match The Burgundy Color

Color Swatches

Summer colors are coming and going and before we know it, fall colors will be moving in. The number one color of fall is burgundy, a deep red color that may even look purple sometimes. Fall weddings are sprinkled with this color, along with other fall colors, like complimentary yellows, oranges, and rose colors.


A dark burgundy color can be complimentary to most neutrals (black, white, light gray, dark gray, tan, brown). But what colors can be combined with burgundy to make a perfect color scheme? Here are 5 of the best colors that match burgundy and will pass your color swatch test!


A peach color is a perfect compliment to the deep color of burgundy. Peach is a nice, sweet, light color and lightens up a look that is otherwise darkened by burgundy. If you’re looking to keep things light and fresh, then choose peach to go with burgundy.

These peach-colored roses are a perfect match for the burgundy flowers. This is a common wedding color combination. Notice how the green of the leaves are also a great match for the colors!

These nails make for a perfect color combination!


This is my favorite color match. Bittersweet is a lesser-known color name, but once you see it, you realize it’s that awkward color that is darker than salmon and coral, but not close to the deep red of burgundy that you could never put a name to (until now!). Almost an orange, bittersweet is the perfect shade of pink to match burgundy.

Bittersweet shoes with a blush dress and a burgundy overcoat is the perfect color matching combination for fall clothes.

This girl has it going on! A bittersweet-colored shawl paired with a burgundy skirt and a simple black shirt makes for the perfect combination.

Green Colors

There are so many kinds of green that go with burgundy. Kelly green, emerald green, sage green just to name a few. Certain green colors can be paired with burgundy throughout the year—a Kelly green for a spring or summer look, a toned-down sage green for the fall time, and a darker hue of green for winter.

Here is a deeper shade of the color green in combination with a burgundy sweater.

What makes green such a great compliment to the deep hues of burgundy is the natural richness of both colors. The two colors together remind you of a deep red rose with a green stem and green leaves. Although if not matched carefully with the hues, it may come off looking Christmas-y.

A sage green has the same earthy feel to it, which makes for a perfect outfit combination!


Yellow is another great color to match burgundy. Looking at the combination of yellow and burgundy colors reminds people of the beautiful color of flowers with an interior yellow. It also looks similar to the color of leaves in the fall, which is a perfect fall look!

The burgundy color of the head piece matches the yellow dress perfectly! This was worn in a Nigerian wedding and the bride looks nothing less than gorgeous! I also notice another one of my matching colors in this outfit. Can you figure out which one it is?

It’s no surprise that since gold is a hue of yellow, that gold and burgundy match perfectly (and they do!). These burgundy and gold glimmer nails make for a perfect manicure!

Navy Blue

Arguably a neutral color, navy is a deeper hue of blue. A navy and burgundy color combination typically reminds you of the country’s colors, often given a rustic feel. These colors are often paired in wedding color schemes and spruced up with ivories and greens.

I love this black leather jacket, burgundy sweater dress, and navy blue leggings look!

Burgundy shoes look great with navy blue denim jeans (a classic navy go-to).

The Color of Burgundy

The color of burgundy is a great combination color—it almost goes with anything! The five aforementioned colors are 5 of my favorites and the ones that best match burgundy, but you can play with colors and hues to find the one you like the best!

So whether you are shopping for the perfect back-to-school clothes, picking out a wedding color scheme, interior designing, creating the perfect bouquet of flowers, picking out a great nail color and design, or even landscaping outside, this color swatch for the deep color of burgundy is perfect for you.
