As much as our inner divas would love to rock metallics 24/7, we know a more somber palette is in order for the office. But who’s to say that’s a bad thing, especially for Holiday 2014?

Say hello to your new beauty BFFs for work: burgundy and navy. Use them as accents to your outfit: a rich wine lip, perhaps, or a hint of dark blue shadow applied close to the lashline. If you’re feeling extra playful, experiment with graphic nails like a two-tone French manicure.

We are seriously in love with this posh-yet-practical color trend, so here are our top picks for the season:
