Are you looking for the perfect color purse to wear with a maroon or burgundy dress? If so, you’re in the right place. Knowing there are always doubts when choosing the ideal clutch bag, I listed below the best suggestions for a flawless look.

If you’ve been invited to a more formal party, like a wedding, you can pair your maroon or burgundy dress with a gold, silver, white, nude, light pink, lilac, or even yellow purse. For an evening party, a black, navy blue or emerald green clutch will give you an exquisite look.

Next, I’ll explain in detail what to consider before choosing each color purse, adding some suggestions for jewelry, shoes, and nail polish to coordinate your look.

What color purse to wear with a maroon or burgundy dress?

Many purse colors will perfectly match your maroon or burgundy dress. However, before picking one you should consider the occasion, as some events may ask for more discreet accessories.

If you were invited to a wedding as a bridesmaid, it is best to opt for a less flashy clutch, keeping the spotlight on your dress and on the real protagonist of the day: the bride.

On the other hand, if you are a guest, you can be more daring by opting for a more eye-catching and vibrant purse color.

Anyway, whether for a more formal party or a wedding, you will find below the best suggestions to look your absolute best on that very special day!

1. Gold

Whether you’ve been invited to a wedding as a bridesmaid or a guest, you can’t go wrong pairing your maroon or burgundy dress with a gold purse.

In my opinion, a clutch bag in this warm and luxurious color is perfect for a wedding or a more glamorous evening party, combining elegance and sensuality without drawing attention away from the dress.

As for the other accessories, you can match this look with gold jewelry and a red nail polish. If you’re going to be a bridesmaid, opt for a more discreet nude nail polish or a classic French manicure.

2. Silver

For a more discreet yet elegant look, a silver purse is a perfect option to keep the spotlight on your maroon or burgundy dress.

Ideal for a wedding or a more glamorous evening party, a silver clutch bag will give you a modern and sophisticated look, especially if combined with silver jewelry and shoes.

More discreet than a gold purse, it will be perfect for bridesmaids, being one of the most classic and safe options to coordinate your look (especially if your dress has silver embroidery).

3. Pink

A maroon or burgundy dress is already very intense and daring. If you want to soften your look, you can’t go wrong with a trendy light pink purse.

That way, for a more delicate and romantic look, opt for a light pink or baby pink clutch bag, especially if you were invited to a wedding in the warmer months of the year.

In this case, I would keep a warm and classy look coordinating with gold shoes and jewelry, wrapping it all up with a subtle nude nail polish in a pinkish hue.

4. Lilac or lavender

After Pantone chose very peri as the color of the year 2022, dresses and accessories in colors from this palette have become a favorite of brides for their bridesmaids.

In fact, if you are looking for a lighter, more delicate look, you can’t go wrong when pairing a lilac or lavender clutch bag with a maroon or burgundy dress.

This color purse will give you an elegant and delicate look, perfect for a wedding or other more formal party in the warmer months of the year.

To keep the lightness of the look, you can coordinate it with silver jewelry and silver shoes, as well as with a subtle nude nail polish.

Green accessories never go out of style!

An emerald green clutch bag is a classic and safe choice for an elegant party look, which goes perfectly with a maroon or burgundy dress.

In this case, I would coordinate it with silver fringe earrings or emerald green drops. As for shoes, a nude strappy sandal will be the best option to keep the spotlight on your dress and accessories.

If you’re in a lot of doubt and don’t want to take any chances, you can opt for a more monochromatic look by matching the color of the purse with that of your dress.

This is, in fact, a classic and safe option, ideal for those looking for a discreet yet elegant look.

If you decide to do it, be careful to choose a clutch bag in a lighter or darker shade than your maroon or burgundy dress to create some contrast.

In this case, jewelry and silver shoes will match perfectly, giving you a sophisticated party look.

Like a lilac purse, a white or nude clutch bag will give you a lighter and more delicate look, smoothing out the boldness of your dress.

Easy to match, this purse color will look great with nude shoes and silver jewelry, resulting in an elegant and romantic look.

As for the color of the nails, a nude nail polish will be perfect for a more discreet look, especially if you have been invited to be a bridesmaid.

Is there a color that reminds us of summer more than yellow?

This color brings the warmth and happiness associated with this time of the year, being a fun choice for accessories if we have been invited to a spring or summer wedding.

In fact, a yellow purse will go perfectly with a maroon or burgundy dress, either in a more vibrant or softer hue. To dare more, you can also pair it with gold jewelry for a warm and luxurious look.

9. Black or navy blue

For a glamorous evening party or a special occasion as a couple, you can match your maroon or burgundy dress with a black or navy blue purse.

A black clutch will be perfect for a more classic look, giving you a powerful look. Alternatively, if you’re looking for more color, you can also wear an elegant navy blue clutch.

In the case of a black purse, I would match it with nude shoes, black drop earrings, and a bold red nail polish. With a navy blue purse, you can’t go wrong with black shoes, especially if your dress is a bit shiny.

10. Colorful

To dare more, you can combine your maroon or burgundy dress with a colorful clutch bag.

I love how this purse option adds more fun to the look, being an elegant option for a more formal occasion. However, if you have been invited to be a bridesmaid, opt for a silver, gold, or nude purse instead.

Considering that the bag is already quite flashy, I would match it with the simplicity of silver or gold jewelry and a subtle nude nail polish. On the other hand, you can coordinate the color of your nails with the purse by opting for one of its colors.
