We Heart Merlot

Merlot is a deep purply red and is perfect for the cooler months. The name itself is derived from the pigment of merlot wine and how can anything go wrong when wine is involved!

It is a colour that can never go out of style and is suitable for all occasions, whether it be for a formal, bridesmaids, wedding, christening or ball.  Merlot is flattering on all skin tones and suits each and every body shape and size. 

What’s great about merlot is how unique it is.  You’ll have no problem standing out from the crowd, getting that wow reaction! Being a brave and bold colour, you will never have to worry about having an outfit clash with someone else at your next event

Our selection of Merlot dresses here at Montique offer a level of chic sophistication and poise.  Pair the colour with either a nude or black pair of shoes, and a clutch to match.  What’s great about Merlot is the range of accessories you can pair with it.  The colour contrasts magically with gold, silver, and neutral toned accessories. 

If you need some jewellery inspiration, take a look here at our current earring collection.  You’ll be sure to find a style suitable to you and your dress. Some of our top earring picks to match with a merlot outfit would be:
