One of my favorite wardrobe accent colors for fall is a deep red-burgundy-aubergine-merlot kind of color. Let’s just call it wine (because I like wine!). It goes with every single neutral. Every single one! So why not call IT a neutral too!?
You can wear so many things with this hue. Even though it’s a bit more bold than black or gray or navy, I find it to be a really sophisticated way to play with color in your wardrobe – especially as the leaves start to turn and the weather cools. Often times the it-color of the season is something most people are afraid to try or that feels hard to pull off in everyday life. Not so this fall! Yay! Wine with everything!
There are few different ways I like to wear wine. For the more adventurous dresser like myself, I say wear it from head to toe. If you’re going to do that, stick with sophisticated cuts like these wide leg corduroy trousers and this chiffon striped button-up blouse. Wine pumps and an accent necklace will really make it pop, too but a neutral pump will work just as well! Keep the lip a little lighter, though since it’s already bordering on a little too much!
For the gal who isn’t ready to plunge head-first into wine with everything, I’d start with a thin belt to wear around a black sheath for work; or some wine suede pointy-toed flats to go with this season’s frayed hem jeans on the weekend. A wine-colored tee will also compliment a brown leather jacket perfectly for date night!
So where did I get this smashing outfit, you might be asking? ModCloth, of course!! They are my fave outfitter this fall – especially for my go-to workwear pieces like wide leg trousers and pretty girly blouses. These two pieces are from their in-house line, come in a range of sizes from XXS – 4XL. I’ve already gushed about them in my last collab post, but I can’t help but beam with pride when I wear a brand that espouses body positivity and size inclusivity.
P.s. My sister’s favorite lipstick in highschool was Revlon’s Wine With Everything. I just found out they still make it!
