Warm up with Merlot

It has finally started to drop in temperature, and I was excited to rock this merlot colored coat, from Shein that I bought over the summer. I love the trend this fall of merlot colored clothing for many reasons. 1) It matches all the beautiful fall leaves 2)Merlot gives your outfit a bold and sassy kick, just like the vino 3) It looks good in all shapes and styles, purses, coats, pants, scarves you name it. Plus I love wine :). I bought the coat as a “one size,” this can be awesome for online shopping, but can also get tricky. It makes it very easy to shop online because you don’t have to stress about figuring out your size, but it can get tricky because “one size” pieces aren’t tailored for a particular body type so are often baggy. Make sure to pair your “one size” coats with pieces that are more slimming, to help balance out your look. When you are putting an outfit together and need help balancing it out, go for black, it is one of the most slimming colors and will help give you shape.
