All About Oxblood

It's no secret - oxblood is the hot hue for fall. (Proud to say that the magazine I worked for this summer was up on the trend and featured the shade in our September issue). While others are iffy on the somewhat gory sounding name, I like how they're trying to mix it up a little - there can only be so much "dark red", "burgundy" or "maroon" before a change in name is necessary - and while this one's a bit graphic, there's just something about it... 


It's a perfect dark color appropriate for fall - I can't wait to invest in some oxblood of my own to pair with dark wash or black jeans or maybe even a neutral print? The options are endless! How would you wear Oxblood?

  1. I like this color. I think you make a valid point about the name thing. Time to switch it up, make an old color fresh and exciting!
