“The Red Blazer – Red is your new staple. On skirts, jackets, even shoes. Think deep CLARET though, not Red Riding Hood.”
This is a shade that is everywhere, and I am even tripping up over it in Charity Shops, nothing to do with my penchant for Shiraz.

These vintage court shoes are the perfect colour and style for this season’s wine inspired theme, and if you’ve had a bit too much to drink the heel isn’t too high for you to stumble home!
This Oasis leather jacket, is a great wine inspired merlot colour. If you happen to spill your precious glass of red, no one will be any the wiser!
