The color of the month: Garnet

Incorporate the birthstone of January into your look this month. Let yourself sparkle by including this deep shade of red in your personal style.
Our pick: Bodycon dress with leather details, $70, Zara.

Garnet dress

Get noticed in this red hue by wearing an edgy dress. Pick something that is just edgy enough to get noticed — but still classy enough to wear to work. When in doubt, pick a sheath dress — they are the perfect balance of professional and sassy.

Our pick: Zara bodycon dress with leather details ($50).

Our pick: Sitara gold three-tiered dangling earrings, $22. Jessica Simpson.

Garnet earrings

Add some red sparkle to your ears with some eye-catching earrings. Whether you wear simple studs, dangle earrings or chandeliers, you are likely to stand out in a crowd with this radiant hue.

Our pick: Jessica Simpson Sitara gold three-tiered dangling earrings ($22).

Our pick: Scarlett O'Hara, $8. Essie.

Garnet nail polish

Add some fire to your nails with a garnet shade. You can do simple red or a glittery red. Red nails are classic and never go out of style, plus it's the color of power and confidence.

Our pick: Essie's Scarlett O'Hara ($8).

Our pick: Color whisper by Maybelline in Berry Ready, $6-8.

Garnet lipstick

Make a statement with dark red lips this year. Picking the right shade for you can be tricky when it comes to reds. Make sure you test the color next to your skin tone before purchasing — and make sure your teeth are fairly white. Red tends to bring out the yellow in the teeth.

Our pick: Color whisper by Maybelline in Berry Ready ($6-8).

Our pick: Red oversize Chelsea python-embossed clutch, $298, Michael Kors.

Garnet clutch

Invest in a clutch rich in the color that's always on trend. A vibrant accessory can make an otherwise drab outfit pop with color, plus who wouldn't feel amazing when they saw this gorgeous shade on their arm every day?

Our pick: Michael Kors red oversize Chelsea python-embossed clutch ($298).
