We can always count on songstress, Florence Welch to take a trend and transform it into a dramatic, bohemian ensemble. Case in point: this smooth, burgundy suit paired with a wide-brimmed hat and Gucci's Jackie Python Shoulder Bag ($5900).

In (the rare) case you didn’t know, Olivia Palermo’s fashion month looks were pretty spectacular, and this faded cherry ensemble was no exception. She paired a Reiss Jacket ($285) and Leather Leggings ($935) in Cognac to create a modern take on the matching suit.

There’s perhaps no better way to show your love and affection for this trend than Burberry’s Heart Print Shirt ($795). Victoria Beckham arrived at JFK in the silky blouse, making us seriously consider upping our airport outfit game.

As with wine, often the simplest versions are the most rewarding.  We found the same to be true about Blanchett, who wore a minimal Gucci Silk Cady Long Sleeve Dress ($2700) during Milan Fashion Week. 

Elettra Wiedemann

Oh, spilt wine. A party faux pas we wouldn’t wish upon our worst enemy, unless they owned this dress. We know it’s a stretch, but Wiedemann’s two-tone, print dress almost looks like perfectly symmetrical spills, in the best way possible, obviously.

The Mad Men actress made a splash last month in her Delpozo Ruffle Skirt Dress ($2395) at a Vanity Fair and Maybelline soiree at the Chateau Marmont. The combination of bordeaux and peach make for a delightfully sweet blend.

Ashley Madekwe

Just because the season is changing doesn’t mean you have to retire your colourful moto jacket—just look at Madekwe for reference. The actress paired a pale pink Mural Tough Girl Faux Leather Moto Jacket ($88) with Leith's Long Sleeve Knit Midi Dress ($48) in Mahogany and Manolo Blahnik's Taylor d’Orsay Pumps ($695) for a perfectly on-point look.

If you like to (literally) mix it up, consider the following: a printed, wine-coloured dress looks bold when worn with a faux fur vest, black hat, and strappy sandals.

As with any colour trend, the creativity often comes out in the textures you choose. The contrast between this street styler’s leather pants and velvet jacket is, might we say, a full-bodied ensemble!

Admittedly, this look is the most adventurous of the bunch. However, don’t dismiss the plum on plum on print look right away! Paired with simple denim, we imagine it working seamlessly from day to night.

Marc Jacobs’ F/W 13 collection for Louis Vuitton served up gorgeous boudoir-inspired looks, including this blush and plum outfit that we will now refer to as “the nightcap.” We’ll be picking those Dramatic Sandals ($1220) up as well, while we’re at it. 

Rochas

When designer Marco Zanini sent this look down the F/W 13 Rochas runway, we couldn’t help but drool over the exquisite, varying shades of wine, including this ultra-luxe Claret Long Sleeve Sweater ($595). If we had it our way, we’d try out this ensemble at our next Sunday brunch.
