Winter Color Crush: Elegant & Opulent Bordeaux.

Winter is the season when we gravitate towards all things glamorous, infusing beautiful, warm fabrics like velvet, chic faux fur and sparkle into our style choices. While bold red is the classic go to shade of the winter season, this year we are crushing on elegant and opulent shades of Bordeaux.

When most people hear Bordeaux they immediately think of the deep, rich color of wine. This alluring shade exudes glamour and is the perfect choice for a festive occasion like ringing in the new year.

Read on to see our fabulous finds to help you wear this mesmerizing color with sass and confidence this winter. Plus we have added beautiful accessories in complimentary colors to inspire the way you style your elegant and opulent in Bordeaux look...

How To Style Bordeaux
This rich, dark shade gives you the elegance of wearing a chic black dress but with a luxurious pop of color, see below for our tips on how to style your Bordeaux fashion.

Your Makeup
Keep your makeup demure with a soft gold eye shadow and a natural or pale pink lip color for a beautiful day time look. Wear a rich Bordeaux lip color like the Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss shown the image below for a sultry evening out.

Your Accessories:
We love the look of pairing your Bordeaux dress with a purse or clutch in the same color family. You can opt for a slightly lighter shade to add contrast to your look or add a touch of glamour with a beautiful gold clutch.

Your Shoes:
If you are wearing a column dress like the one shown in the image below, you should match your heel color to your Bordeaux dress for a seamless look. For a less formal event wear a pair of pale pink heels with your Bordeaux dress that's cut above or slightly below the knees. A pair of black velvet stiletto heels is also a perfect compliment.

Your Jewelry:
Let your Bordeaux dress be the statement piece of your outfit, wear it with streamlined but elegant jewelry pieces like the beautiful crystal earrings shown in the image below.
