Red Red Wine
There is no doubt that the colour of fall 2012 is oxblood. Whether you call it wine, burgundy, merlot, bordeaux or oxblood, we reported way back in February that this rich shade would be on every fashion lover’s radar for autumn clothing. If you haven’t found your perfectly tasty wine-hued staple yet, it’s time to start devouring some of these essential fall pieces in the deep shade.
Designers from Alexander Wang to DKNY to Gucci made us thirsty for more wine- fashion, that is. Mostly, we have been looking forward to indulging in the colour worn head-to-toe as a monochromatic look, in smooth leather, or paired with black for a deeply dramatic take.
We suggest starting with denim in this hot fall hue, like these J Brand jeans. If workwear is your thing, opt for this affordable H&M blazer or Topshop peplum pencil. Most skin tones can wear at least one shade of this versatile colour family, but if you prefer, go for sweet heels like this Mark & James pair, or invest in a staple piece in the statement shade like our Mason shirtdress here. None of these pieces work for you? Not to fear. The wine trend continued into beauty, with lipstick and nails our second favourite way to wine (okay, third.) Will you wear your wine on your clothing, lips, or nails this fall?
