As the outside gets colder and temperatures drop below zero, the colors of our outfits get darker and darker. This winter a very special color trend conquers the fashion world: Merlot wine red! We’ll show you how to best wear this deep shade of red.
What does merlot color look like?
You do not have to be a wine connoisseur to know that not only a French grape hides behind Merlot but also a beautiful elegant Bordeaux red. It was listed from Pantone in their Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 NYFW Color Palette under the name Biking Red. Whatever the name, it’s a trending color that perfectly suits our taste. Because the dark wine red is not only very elegant and modern but looks as good on blondes as it does on brunettes. And whether you have a light porcelain skin or you have olive skin tone, Merlot is the perfect choice for your winter wardrobe.
The trend color this winter is Merlot red
Red has long been one of the most important fashion trend colors in autumn and winter and has already appeared on all catwalks of Fashion Weeks. No wonder! It brings color in every wardrobe, without being too loud. Merlot red color is no exception! On the contrary: with its elegance and sophistication and in combination with velvet, sequins, and tulle, the color looks incredibly noble, yet modern. And that fits perfectly with the winter and the upcoming holidays.
How to style the trend color Merlot
When you’re choosing your outfits to wear with Merlot red, you can let your creativity run wild. If you want to get used to the color trend, it’s best to choose only one piece of clothing and use it as a great accent. Or you can choose booties, bags or hair accessories in Merlot. Our favorite: Merlot-colored croc-embossed leather boots. They look cool with mom jeans as well as midi skirts. Bold women can of course also dare the complete merlot look. Because this winter, red is the new black!
Merlot also works great in combination with other colors such as white, black, beige and gray. Yellow, fir green or a delicate mint are a great choice too. You can also play with fabrics. Especially popular are velvet, satin, and lace.
