I am talking shades of wine today; varietals of the sartorial kind. If you haven’t picked up on deep, rich, cabernet-colored reds for fall equestrian styles, you must not have the internet and you most certainly aren’t reading this. All of my favorite brands have wine-inspired shades going on in their fall palettes. It may not be the only hot color for cooler temperatures, but it is definitely my favorite!
Um …. you’ve seen this, right? Asmar Equestrian has pulled together a special edition All Weather Rider in a bold tempranillo hue WITH ELBOW PATCHES! Need I say more?
The color goes beyond rain gear into show attire. Shades of red are getting pretty popular for show jackets and close as they may be to the traditional pinque, they are running more toward deeper wine shades or warmer rusty tones. Like this Equine Couture Danvers show coat — but it comes in navy and black, too! Can’t beat the price, either, coming in under $100.
Considering my oft-impulsive spending on breeches, I couldn’t miss these Romfh Sarafina breeches with silicone knee grips. This might be my dream breech!
And last, I have this belt. I love this belt. It’s in my daily rotation of riding attire. The Duftler quality is outstanding, too! Well worth the expense for a piece that can be worn for years with so many options. I picked it up during a Luxe Eq sale, and I have zero regrets.
While I wouldn’t pull together a monochromatic claret-colored riding outfit, using a pop of such a bold color paired with neutrals will get you through the autumn breezes in fine form.
