Top shelf

If your go-to wine glasses have grown a bit tired during the past year, it may be time to indulge in a stylish new set.

Lip love

Bring a bit of wine into your beauty regime with a rich bordeaux lipstick like these Sustain Lipsticks from the Indigenous-owned brand Cheekbone Beauty. The sustainably sourced formulas are vegan, cruelty free, and feature biodegradable packaging. The bold, blue-red shade Aki — said to be Anishinaabe or Ojibwe word for Land or Earth, according to the company — is sure to be a fast favourite.

Ear candy

Add a drop of merlot to your earlobes with these eye-catching hoop earrings from the Toronto-based brand Mejuri. Crafted from gold vermeil (18-karat gold over sterling silver), garnet and enamel, the elegant earrings can be worn on their own, or added to an ear stack for some extra eye candy.

Best bag 

For those who prefer white wine, comes this Pillow Tabby Shoulder Bag from the American fashion brand Coach. The buzz-worthy bag, which is a pillowy iteration of the popular Tabby silhouette, is available in several shades, but we’re partial to the soft ivory hue. It has us dreaming of a great Gewürztraminer. Cheers!
