Trend Alert: Wearing Wine
The latest hue to saturate the blogosphere, magazines and the chicest bodies of them all is Red Wine. It’s a colour easily ostracized by fashion-conscious dressers, yet this winter it has received sweeping favour in design circles. Hibernating for the past few decades the revival of this hue has made it look fresh and modern on the runway and the racks!
“Designers have used wine for the gamut of apparel items, including separates, accessories, and dresses. The selection of gowns from the likes of Marchesa and Rem Acra suggests that the colour is likely to be seen frequently on the red carpet come arad season.” - Sensational Colour.
The trend will also extend to beauty products. We will see the vibrant neon lip shades darkening to deep wine hues as heralded at the Spring 2011 shows for Emmanuel Ungaro and Louis Vuitton (below).
This colour blends seamlessly with other rich hues such as forest green and deep purple and royal navy. However, if you’re ready to experiment try combining it with a few unexpected colours like neon pink!
