Wine-stained style

We can't resist fall's wine-stained lips, seen on many a fall runway and now shaping up to be a beauty staple, so we're using that deep, fruity red as our fashion muse. Take a look at our stylish picks for gorgeous clothes and accessories in deep wine-inspired shades. We'll drink to that!

1Glossy patent pump

Having some classic round toe pumps in your style arsenal is a shoe collection must, and we fell in love with this simple wine-colored pair (Nordstrom, $69). This go-anywhere option has a narrow heel and timeless look we love. The rich burgundy hue would look great with a charcoal gray pencil skirt or even paired with dark skinny jeans for a comfortably chic ensemble.

2Cocktail ring

Make an instant style statement with this unique polished black ring featuring a gorgeous burgundy stone (, $190). This is no ordinary piece of jewelry, so if you want to show off your fashion forward way of thinking, this is the accessory to do it with. We love the angular shape and pretty polished sheen of this inspired creation.

3Long cardigan

Stay warm and cozy in style wearing this long, capelet cardigan in a plush shade of purple, reminiscent of a freshly poured glass of merlot (Anthropologie, $126). The chunky knit, button front piece is perfect for a chilly fall day when heavier coats aren't quite yet called for.

Breathe new life into your bag collection with this cute cross-body bag in a shade inspired by only the richness of red wines (Top Shop, $56). We love the structured design and small size perfect for running errands or casual dates with friends.

5Loose-knit sweater

We couldn't resist the winning, wine-inspired shade of this loose-knit scoop neck sweater (Barney's, $275). The fitted silhouette gives this piece a decidedly feminine feel and makes it into something slightly sexier than your average sweater. Pair with a long, voluminous skirt and lace-up boots or wear over a pair of tailored, skinny trousers for a chic, daytime look.

6Teardrop earrings

Add a pop of color to the usual metallic bling in your jewelery box with these charming dark raspberry-hued teardrop earrings (Macy's, $26). The juicy, robust shade with a hint of pink are perfect for a fall filled with splashes of bright color amidst more mature shades. Wear these to the office with a gray or navy outfit or have them play a background role against more eye-catching (orange or green) attire.
