Wine Portofino Shirt Update

Last week in my Style Inspirations post I was very excited about the arrival of more fall color options in the Portofino shirt. I specifically mentioned the Wine version, which was looking quite purple on the website. Now that I have it in my possession I wanted to give you a real life color comparison in case you are considering adding this one to your collection.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of how it looks on Express.com vs. real life:

Express portofino shirt, blouse, top, wine color

In this case I think the color portrayal is pretty accurate, and if you were looking for a burgundy Portofino, this one might not do be right for you. But if you don't mind a more purple shade of wine (Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot perhaps?) this will make a great addition to your closet.

Express also has a new Wild Orchid (available here) color for the Portofino:

This one looks like a rich, jewel-toned pink to me, which is definitely a more of a fall friendly color than Fluro Pink and Hot Pink which have been out for awhile.

See you tomorrow for some Style Inspirations!



  1. That pink one is so pretty... is it too much to own 2 pink portofino's!?

    Ps. I just added you on BlogLovin'! Can't wait to read more!


    1. I think a fall/winter pink and a separate spring/summer pink sounds very practical!

      And thanks for following me! Of course I'm always following my fellow Express shopaholics...it's part of my "job" here. :)

  2. I love both those shirts! Such pretty colors!

  4. Yay! This just reminded me that I wanted the Wild Orchid. And since they are by one get one cheaper, I got the cobalt, too. But even better, I had $30 in rewards, so the cobalt was free!

    1. Express Next rewards are the best!! I need to do a post about it...I do all kinds of little stuff to boost my points.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I sincerely appreciate each and every one and always do my best to answer questions promptly!
