I love when a new color comes to surface for the season. And this fall-into-winter transition is no different.

Almost out of nowhere, the dark, yet extremely rich, color bordeaux has come out of the woodwork to reign supreme over all other colors.

While burgundy has not been in the fashion spotlight for a few decades, coming out of its sabatical has made it all the more fresh now.

What's great about this maroon shade is that it is a perfect dark color for the winter months but stands out from the ordinary go-to black. In a weird way, however, it still remains shocking and unexpected. And when I looked through my (overflowing) closet, I realized I had not one piece of clothing in this tone. So I knew it was time to change that.

After all, burgundy can be found in everything nowadays, from accessories to dresses. It even transcends to lipcolors! And now that you know it is the hottest color of the season, you'll start to spot the cranberry shade in virtually every store. What I love most about this trend is how it is easily attainable for any fashionista on any budget.

It also looks good on anyone. And I mean a-n-y-o-n-e. No matter your skin tone or hair coloring, you can pull off this color with virtually anything. I love mixing the wine with loads of blacks and neutral browns and beiges. The pop of the bordeaux really stands out and makes the overall look fabulous.

Check out my slideshow to the left for some affordable bordeaux pieces. I promise it will have you wine-ing for more!
