While red seems to rally during the holiday season, sometimes it can be a little too…red. Its deeper, mellower cousin – the makers of the products below call it “burgundy” and “spilled wine” – is quietly sophisticated, but not buttoned-up. See our party-ready picks below, all under $100.
The exposed zipper at the back of this strapless dress ($40) is a simple but eye-catching detail.
The brown tones in this croc-print pump ($91) bring down the brightness; the hidden platform means you can keep dancing a bit longer.
The relaxed fit of this racer back tank ($47.60) would pair well with fitted denim, or even satiny black trousers.
This satin and patent clutch ($12.50) would look just right with almost any evening outfit that incorporates black.
This sequined chiffon tank ($23) has a flapper feel; go with the flowiness, or tuck it into a high-waist skirt for a sleeker look.
