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.

This is my favorite color match. Pink is an all rounder and it matches plenty of other colors smoothly. From light to medium pink range, you can easily pick up a number to go with burgundy. Though not so much on striking pink to go with.

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.

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.

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!

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.
