The New Red
Dare we say it? Bordeaux is the new red. Clearly the color of the season, the shade—which falls somewhere between bright-cherry and dark-brown—has a dramatic look, a luxe feel and all the versatility of classic red. The characteristic that gives it the slightest edge? What else, but undeniable edge.
Whether you’ve long built your cold-weather wardrobe around black, navy or gray, you’re in luck; fall-essential bordeaux complements classic winter neutrals to perfection—so mixing it in here and there will prove effortless.
Get the Look
Consider easing into the trend by way of your beauty routine; both bordeaux lipstick and nail polish are big this season, and will give you a lot of bang for your buck. Or, start with a style you’re bound to wear repeatedly—like skinnies, booties, a blazer or bag. Once you’re sold on the look, go a bit bigger. Our current obsession? A bordeaux leather jacket.
