You Had Me At 'Merlot'

There's more to love about this gorgeous hue than simply sipping a delicate bottle of your favorite French vintage (not that we'd complain about that!). The runways of Fashion Week made it clear that deep burgundy is the new it color for fall 2017. As the seasons and leaves change, so do our wardrobes. But in South Florida, where the temperatures are still warm through December, it's more challenging to follow the trends like the streets of New York or Paris. So we picked our favorite, and functional, plum pieces to stay on trend in Palm Beach this fall.

Regal and rich, this deep red wine shade is classic and nobel, with a hint on mystery. When in doubt, pair with black, white, grey, navy, and camel, or go bold with bright red. It also works wonders with denim and leopard print. Tonal or monochromatic dressing is also on track to make a splash in the fashion industry. By adding slightly different shades and materials, it creates a sophisticated and fashion-forward look.

1. Stella McCartney

We are obsessed with this 'Margot' skirt from Stella McCartney. The magenta silk-mousseline and burgundy sequins create a sophisticated and fashion-forward combo, perfect for a business meeting or cocktail party. Pair with a silky blush or maroon spaghetti strap for a night on the town. But be prepared to make heads turn!

2. KATE SPADE NEW YORK

If you're not ready to commit to full on burgundy, add a pop of color with these super fun statement earrings by Kate Spade. Spice up a simple dress, or go casual chic with a t-shirt and jeans. The feathered tassels and gold hardware are on trend for fall.

3. Jimmy Choo

These Romy 100mm glitter pumps by Jimmy Choo are the perfect way to integrate the season's jewel-toned it color into your wardrobe. Sexy, shimmering, and sophisticated, these stilettos will elevate any outfit. Wear with the For Love & Lemons dress for a fierce monochromatic look.

4. Yves Saint Laurent Clutch

This iconic bag from Yves Saint Laurent refines any ensemble. With rich fabrics and colors emerging for fall, we swoon over the burgundy velvet and gold details. And who doesn't love a tassel?! Flawless and classic, the Yves Saint Laurent Kate Clutch delivers our must have bag for fall.

5. Essie & EDWARD BESS BEAUTY

"Skirting the Issue" is the sexy and subversive nail lacquer by Essie. Match your glass of wine while making a statement. Double up on sexy by adding a seductive pout with "Night Romance" Ultra Slick Lipstick by Edward Bess. This creamy and rich raspberry bordeaux creates an irresistible pop of color to compliment any fall forward look.

6. For love & lemons

This For Love & Lemons Papillon Mini Dress is the perfect way to bring burgundy to the beaches. Short and sweet, the raspberry wine color, crushed velvet, and cutout patches combine three major fall trends from NYFW. This flirty and fun dress is everything fall in one fierce frock.
