Oxblood OBSESSION. Crimson, wine, deep blood, burgundy are all just a few names to describe the incredibly luxe color. The shade is deep and mysterious, rich and fine, and simply perfection. Seems like the Fall 2012 RTW runways were dead on with the popularity of the shade. Best thing about this hue, it looks fabulous on everyone. There is no denying that whether it be a top, bottoms, overcoat, accessory, or shoes oxblood is the shade-to-wear this fall season.
How to Wear: I truly think Oxblood has become the new staple color for fall. I view it kind of like a neutral. Pair it with navy, beige, forest green, purple, mustard, honestly, the list is endless. Color block is the way to go! Don't be afraid to mix with a pretty print or brocade. Fall trends are all about rich brocade patterns and looking luxe, add some decadent gold pieces to accessorize with and some fun shoes.
Try the all-on-oxblood or make it the stand out piece of your outfit, carefully choosing other pieces to embellish the look. There is nothing wrong with mixing textures either. Go for a pair of great leather pants or leggings, or you might want to add lace or a faux fur item. My personal favorite, adding a leopard print loafer or smoking slippers with any of my oxblood outfits. Hope you love the trend as much as I do! Have fun with your outfits!
