Flashback to 2015 when Marsala was the Pantone color of the year. Designers must have fallen in love with this hue. It’s making a strong appearance in Fall/Winter 2016 collections across the runways, unexpectedly (but beautifully) paired with vibrant shades of orange. The stunning colorations of maroon, brick, orange and burnt orange have Fashionistas across the globe swooning for Fall.
This color story gives off a very 70’s feel, but I haven’t heard anyone complaining. Designers like Tory Burch and Alice + Olivia have showcased wraparounds, geometric prints and the oh-so-coveted knee high boots in their Fall 2016 Collections.
While this color combo is super fashion forward, it can easily be pulled off by anyone looking to make a statement. I needed to do just that when prepping for an industry event late last week. Below is an outfit pieced together with items entirely from Tanger Outlets. I even found myself trend shopping for you all while shopping for myself. This bold and beautiful color story can be found around every corner.
I was naturally inclined to stick with the 70’s vibe. After finding this flowy (almost seasonless) shift dress from BCBGMAXAZRIA the next step was a wine colored tight, making it a super elegant fall look. Because I’m all about elongating the leg, I paired the dress and tights with a pair of Gucci maroon heels from Saks OFF 5th (currently running a 75% OFF deal through 8/2). They will surely get their wear during the fall months.
I kept jewelry minimal with simple gold hoops and stackable bracelets, but splurged a little on this leather bucket bag, also from Saks OFF 5th. Finding this was like striking gold – it’s the perfect size, perfect color, etc. I also adore the length. A longer strap is definitely in right now and “fashions” it up a bit.
Both orange and wine are bold enough to be worn on their own, but, paired together, are for the most fashion forward! Below are a number of other items available at J.Crew Factory or the Express Factory Outlet that have inspired me to take this trend to the next level.
Head to Tanger before August 21st to pick up these items for yourself for an additional 25% OFF. Tanger’s annual TangerStyle Fall sales period started Monday and only lasts for four short weeks, so hurry in!

Don’t forget to tag me on social media (using #TangerFashionista) with your orange & wine looks. I would love to see how you’ve made these styles your own!
Happy shopping (and saving)! 😉
