While we were all enjoying Thanksgiving leftovers and hitting up the big weekend sales, Taylor Swift spent her weekend jet-setting from Tokyo, Japan, to Sydney, Australia, to promote her new album, Red. As of late, Taylor has been going for a casual, vintage styling vibe, but this time around, she decided to switch it up with a sportier look, which consisted of red sneakers and stripes. She also slipped into this season's It color via one slim-cut pair of burgundy jeans, which she paired with a breezy white top by Bella Dahl. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear all the details on her outfits down under! On Allison McNamara: Elizabeth and James top, Gorjana earrings and necklace. Hair and makeup by Kasia Bohos.
Let's be honest: if there's one color you should be wearing this season, it's burgundy. In redder shades, it's oxblood, in brighter purple tinges, it's a sultry merlot, but this deeper purple-red iteration perfectly indulges our love of moodier hues. To offset the sensuous tone, we're styling (read: expertly coordinating) our favorite burgundy staples with equally cool camel-colored pieces. It's a matchup that works, no matter the occasion or the person wearing it. If you're a classicist, pair a camel peacoat with coated burgundy skinny jeans. If you're more of a bohemian girl, go for the combo of a chunky knitted sweater dress and lace-up boots. If you're a polished professional through and through, then chances are you'll love our duo of a slick burgundy pencil skirt and oversize knit sweater. Bottom line: this color combo deserves a test drive; inside, find five ways to wear it now.
By now you know we are loving all things burgundy for Fall and Winter. We like to think of it as our new neutral, and plan on styling it with bold prints, tough accents, and sumptuous sweaters. Accordingly, we put together three stylish outfits at CUSP boutique in Century City to show you how easy it is to incorporate this color trend into your wardrobe.
Kate Middleton is testing out Fall's must-have color trend: burgundy! The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out alongside Prince William at the Middle Temple Treasury, where they launched a program for law students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and Kate styled up a gorgeous bordeaux skirt suit for the occasion. She made this jacket and skirt number by Paule Ka even more Fall-appropriate by styling it with black tights and suede heels. Watch today's Fab Flash for all the details. On Allison McNamara: H&M top and necklace.
The Fall runways promised us that oxblood would be a major trend this season, but the street style all fashion month long has solidified its status as the hottest hue to have in our closets right now. We hardly need any more convincing than its striking effect in our favorite snaps from Fashion Week — in any iteration, it lends a seasonal richness and feels infinitely more exciting than the usual shades of black or gray. And it's taking over everything from our boots to our dresses, so there's literally a way to incorporate it into any of your Fall looks, no matter where you're headed. We've narrowed it down to the must-have oxblood pieces with major outfit impact, from cozy pullovers to moody leather pants. Click on for 16 ways to wear Fall's favorite color.
Whether you're a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl or a fan of leather minis and sexy pumps, you can wear burgundy all season long. Check out this video to see why our FabSugar team loves Fall's hottest color trend: burgundy! Not only is it a rich Fall hue that looks great on everyone, but it's also a versatile tone with a timeless touch. Here are three ways to incorporate burgundy into your wardrobe . . . and they are all available at Neiman Marcus.
I'll admit, I'd never have thought to buy Georges Duboeuf's 2011 Domaine Les Chenevières Mâcon-Villages: as someone who lacks patience as a virtue, the wine has far too many accented and unpronounceable descriptors for me to bother even pulling it off the shelf when, say, a California Chardonnay is also staring back at me.
But now that I've tried it, I absolutely would: from the minute the pour hit my glass, I knew this wine and I were destined to be friends. The glass had such a saturated straw hue, it was like Rapunzel spun gold! One sniff brought a bevy of aromatics — nuts and fruit like apples and pears, and floral notes, like rose petals — followed by a creamy mouthfeel, citrus midpalate, and a long, lingering finish.
I wasn't the only one: "This is maybe the best wine I've ever had. I want to drink it all day, every day," another taster told me. "It's the type of dry white I'm always looking for: dry with a very slight sweet aftertaste," she explained. Everyone was shocked to find out its sticker price was a mere $14, and we all agreed that despite having a mouthful of a name, this white Burgundy is well worth seeking out.
Su Casa member Pretty Little Things got this overstuffed burgundy chenille burgundy chair at a garage sale for only $50. She wants to integrate it into her awesome new apartment, but her "theoretical color scheme involves grays, golds, whites, neutrals, dark wood, no burgundy!" And aside from the color, she also finds the chair bulky. So she asks, "Can someone suggest a nice color palette that would match with burgundy (in keeping with the other colors I had in mind, or something like them) or should I just give up and get a slipcover?"

Donna Karan's Fall collection is the epitome of Autumn. Warm browns, vivid rust, olive green, terra cotta, mustard, and burgundy were the plush colors the designer used to spice up her line. Now is the perfect time to draw inspiration from it and fill our closets with similar pieces. You can even get inspired from the changing colors of the leaves outside. Stick to one or two colors at most. I've found that gray tights are the perfect accent to any autumnal color. If you're still frazzled, study the Fall collections, see my suggestions below, and be full of Fall.
Help! I've fallen in burgundy bliss. Compared to its racy red sister, there's something about the blood-red handbag that provides warmth and dimension to any look.
This dark red delicacy goes hand-in-hand with Autumn's rich color palette and makes for an amazing compliment to dark denim or a sophisticated LBD. I think I need this amazing Miu Miu Woven Leather Tote ($1,595). Woven to perfection.
