Wonder how to get that stunning catwalk style? Here´s how to translate runway looks to the street.
From last fall´s refine red to last summer´s power red, fashion designers are moving forward in their love affair with this shade of color that speaks lots of self-confidence, this time, bringing their adventure deeper around the family of maroon – merlot, burgundy, oxblood, burgundy and bordeaux. You got it, the fall´s wine colors!

While most runway wine looks were played dramatic by teaming them with black, you also see the statement being altered once mixed with other colors – sultry with hot red, elegant with camel or chocolate, stunning with gold or tangerine, and mysterious with cobalt blue.
Fall´s wine colors favor fair skin tones the most but if you have a darker complexion, fear not, wearing wine shades with brights such as pink or yellow is your best bet.
Keep Your Cool in a Wine Dress
Just like choosing any dress, look for the fit and style that flatter your size and shape. While a skater dress flatters all body type (a wine skater dress really looks yummy with red ankle boots), there´s no reason to keep things safe all the time. Extend your style adventure to cool silhouettes such as an asymmetrical tunic dress or a cocoon sweater dress. Once you find that perfect number to complete your fall, try it with black leather pants or tall socks and leather knee high boots.
Look Effortless in a Wine Coat

Whether you´re thinking of investing on a ladylike coat which features a relaxing silhouette with ruching and bow detail, or you´re looking for luxurious outerwear done in perfection with swing fit or lavish sherling collar, a good coat is never a sin. In styling a wine coat for fall and winter, opt for total monochrome to evoke that elegant old-school glamour, wear it with just black.
Layer Up Your Wine Sweaters
Wine colored sweaters are the most practical items you can invest on in order to get this trend. You can create many outfits with a single wine sweater especially if it´s a knitted jumper. Go runway elegant by pairing it with a midi deep blue pencil or straight cut skirt and black knee high boots, glamorous with a below the knee camel skirt, girls with a pair of pink shorts, or cool casual with black jeans.
Pull Out Your Wine Colored Bottom
If none of the above pieces encouraged you to try this color trend, or if for some reasons the fall´s wine shades intimidate you, then the best approach is going for a trendy bottom – tulip shorts, skater skirt, jeans, or cropped pants. Distract the depth of your lower half by opting for a striking printed top such as leopard, bright stripes/polka, or floral print. Pull everything together with a black or gray jacket and opt for black footwear.
