As the season changes, shades of red wine will begin to dominate both the outdoor and fashion landscapes. Shades of red wine are mysterious and glamorous, and will beautifully mix with the colder season’s gloomy backdrops. Although we may see shades of grey all around us, I promise you will stand out from the gloomy weather when you wear red. Give yourself some hope and direction during the gloomy season.

This long dress isn’t boring or conservative. It’s got an Angelina Jolie slit, so this dress is probably not suitable for a work holiday party... unless you are planning on attending someone else’s company party! The deep hue keeps it elegant and subdued.
