Wearing Wine

Oberdorf_WineColoredTrendsFall means hot apple cider, pumpkin-flavored everything and lots of red wine. No not wine as in the drink, but as in the color. From scarves, to tops, to nail polish, this deep red hue was show stopping all over last season’s fall 2013 fashion shows. Now I know fall is the time where everyone reaches for black, grey and deep navies, by wine is the perfect color to add a pop of color and accent any outfit.

Valentino’s show-stopping fall 2013 fashion show is a great place to draw inspiration. Perhaps you want to be bold and have a whole look solely in this dark hue. Valentino shows you how to get this done through short, long sleeve baby-doll dresses and beautiful, long evening gowns.

Full on wine not your thing? Anna Sui’s fall 2013 runway show has got you covered. The Detroit native is many celebrities go-to contemporary designer because she mixes teen chic with a rock ‘n’ roll edge. Her outfits are all composed of mix and match pieces that are perfect for wine-trend newbies. Pick your favorite pieces and add them to your favorite outfits so you can be right on trend for this fall.

If you’re wearing a simple pair of jeans, boots and top, your sweater is the perfect piece to add in a wine hue. Perhaps you want to start small, then go just with an infinity scarf to accent your outfit.

No matter where and in what quantities you add it in, wine is the go-to color for the fall that will have you looking cute and put-together from classes to meetings. If all else fails, wine on your nails is also the perfect alternative!
