High/Low Looks in Fall’s Must-Have Hues: Bordeaux/Wine Shades

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!


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.


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.
