Call it the ‘new brown’ – this fall, wine-inspired hues are popping up everywhere from knitwear to footwear… great news, too, since this color looks fab on most skin tones!

LOOK 1, HIGH PRICE POINT

Pieces, clockwise from top left: Carven Jupe Jacquard Skirt – could this skirt be any cooler? this is where you can very simply draw the line from fashion to art – the detail and mixture of fabrics here is gorgeous; Gucci Wool Blazer – a perfect investment piece in a hue that’s here to stay; Araks Wool Benedicta Dress – the front panels that come out in an almost-peplum execute as a bow, which in turn adds structure to this soft, ladylike dress; Nina Ricci Empire Dress – power-dressing with ruffles and ruching has never been produced so beautifully; Etoile Isabel Marant Berry Boot – get this boot while it’s still in stores, as it is one of the must-have shoes for fall; Yves Saint Laurent Mae Pump – Deb first wore metal-capped pumps back in the …. OK, we won’t tell you in what decade, but let’s just say our Creative Director has been stylish her whole life – this is now a timeless shoe style, so consider it a smart investment for workday to after hours.

LOOK 2, LOW PRICE POINT

Pieces, clockwise from top left: Urban Outfitters WeSC Edif Faux Leather Mix Bomber Jacket – we love seeing this autumnal hue set beside a soft grey, and it would look especially chic as part of an office look over a white button-down and a black pencil skirt (similar to the way Urban has styled it); Free People Daisy Waist Dress – with this higher hemline, consider pairing the dress with a longer blazer that hits at the same spot; Free People High Rise Destructed Cord – OK, so even though it doesn’t work in all offices, this pant will look great worn weekend after weekend this season – try it with every pair of boots in your closet for a new look each time; Uniqlo Legging Trousers in Red – a low-price staple and therefore a fool-proof purchase in a hot hue; Urban Outfitters Lucca Studded Bodycon Dress – a cozy-chic fall look would have this dress paired with a giant scarf and tall suede boots – effortlessly pretty; Dr. Martens Flora Boot in Burgundy – check out the Dr. Martens web site for all the cool boot styles you didn’t know existed – key price points in statement styles; Rugby Ashtyn Ruched Tee – like the Uniqlo leggings, this tee is another great staple in fall’s latest ‘it’ hue.
