“Fine as wine” is the perfect phrase to describe a retro Estelle who rocked this sexy jumpsuit, accessorized with a taupe fur and suede booties. The singer served up ‘70s glam and highlights the hottest color trend of the season — merlot. The rich color finds a home in many designer racks, as well as cosmetics. If you haven’t thought about infusing the shade into your wardrobe, think again. Here are a few tips to rocking the look.

Brown beauties have an advantage with merlot because the earthy hue complements most of our varying tones. Try a jumpsuit paired with a boyfriend jacket, belt and high heels. Or add a splash of color to a drab outfit with a checkered scarf featuring multiple shades of merlot.

If you’re not that adventurous with your attire, a wine-colored lip might be right up your alley. L’Oreal Color Riche Lipcolor in Raspberries looks incredibly vampy with just a few swipes.

Toast to great style.
