Color Of The Season: Oxblood

As we move into a new season in the fashion world, deeper hues are starting to be re-introduced to our wardrobes.

Fall is nearly upon us, and there’s one color that we all have our eye on. It’s dark, like ripe cherries, and tough, like rust… that color we are all loving so much is oxblood.

Oxblood is fall in a nutshell. From changing leaves to wood burning fires, this color is reminiscent of all that the season brings with it. It’s a bit more exciting than the usual shades of black and grey, and we are ready to wear it throughout the coming months!

It’s not time to cover all the way up just yet, and I love how this plaid mini incorporates the color with a few others that compliment it. As a shorter fall piece, pairing it with a t-shirt and layering a chunky jacket on top keeps the outfit in line with the weather.

Wearing this color all the way down to the toes is quite all right, and a good pair of slip on sneakers can be worn throughout the year in my opinion.

I love to accessorize with red, and oxblood colored shoes are the perfect way to complete a fall look.

Statement jackets are something I look forward to wearing in the fall months, and an oxblood colored one is the perfect way to incorporate the hue into your wardrobe.

We love this color so much we’re working it into our beauty routines for fall as well – it looks so striking on the nails or lips!
