Wine: Autumn’s Hottest Accessory Hue

Never mind drinking wine, this season it’s all about wearing it - the colour that is. Sitting at the subtler end of the red spectrum, wine hued pieces provide another way to work autumn’s key colour trend. On the AW17 catwalks, burgundy accessories completed countless looks, and will inject a touch of luxury to whatever you pair them with…

Whereas you might once have written matchy-matchy looks off as passé, tonal dressing is huge right now. A styling trick employed by the likes of Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors, wearing multiple pieces in the same shade is an effortless way to create a high-impact outfit. Try it by teaming Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Anja' courts with a burgundy dress – a leather biker jacket will provide just the right amount of contrast.

With a fair few months of boot-weather looming ahead of us, what better time to invest in a wine coloured pair? KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Sly' is the ultimate wear-everywhere boot, featuring a comfy block heel and chic almond toe. Denim is a given, but they’ll also look great with opaque tights and flippy mini dresses.

For the last word in boot luxury, look no further than KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Trance' knee-highs. The crocodile embossed cylindrical heel and pointed toe elevate this classic style to new levels. Perfect for work and weekend, style them with midi skirts and knits for a Victoria Beckham-inspired look.

If you haven’t invested in a pair of fashion trainers yet, why not tick off two trends in one with Kurt Geiger London’s burgundy 'Leighton' sneakers? Crafted from luxe satin and adorned with a bejewelled buckle, these kicks are definitely not for the gym. Pair them with a pretty pleated midi skirt or leather leggings for a cool texture clash.

Can’t decide between black and burgundy boots? Thanks to KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Siren', you don’t have to. Combining the two classic hues to create a seriously statement boot, the details don’t stop there – hello cylindrical heel, elasticated panel and on-point high cut. Try with a rich green dress for a luxe colour combo, or let them stand out by wearing with cropped kick-flare jeans and a polo neck.

On the bag front, arm candy doesn’t get more covetable than the quilted wine Kurt Geiger London Kensington. Take your cue from the Altuzarra, Fendi and Delpozo catwalks and work a double wine hit by wearing with matching footwear – if they say co-ordinating shoes and bags are cool again, who are we to argue?
