How to Wear Oxblood: Fashion’s Hottest Fall Color

OxbloodAfter a summer of fruity brights, soft pastels and “gotta wear sunglasses” neons, the trend of oxblood as one of the hottest fall colors is a welcome change.  It’s, a deep bronish-red, is an earthy, deep, carnivorous color that works perfectly for the season and  we’re ready for things to be a bit richer in look.

Love the color and want to incorporate it into your wardrobe?  Well, you’re in luck.  It is very easy to assimilate in with what you already own in big amounts or small doses.  Personally, I love the shade for leather goods, in shoes and as an accent to neutral colors like grey, navy and tans.  However, feel free to incorporate this color in a stronger way.  A coat in this burgundy shade would be gorgeous for fall as would some great sweaters or even a pair of jeans.

Here are some looks using this trendy color to give you a little inspiration.

Oxblood and Camel

There is no combination more lovely than camel and a rich burgundy   If you’re looking to add some depth or a pop to a sophisticated camel or tan ensemble, an splash of this rich shade does it beautifully.  An  purse is a great versatile fall purchase that will work with just about anything you pair with it.

Oxblood and Grey

Oxblood and grey is another favorite color combination of mine.  Grey was so popular last fall.  If you want to update your grey pieces from last year, this is a great color to pair with these grey pieces to bring fall and winter pieces up to speed this year.

Oxblood and Olive

Olive may be a color that you want to wear more of but you may be having a hard time figuring out how to make this traditional color more feminine.  Try an oxblood shoe with olive for feminine fall look.    This is a great shoe color that can get you a lot wear and it can be worn with any color in your wardrobe.  What a great alternative to a boring black shoe.

Oxblood and Navy

Oxblood and navy, another gorgeous combination.  In this case, a lighter blue was brought in to feminize the look even further.  For work, an oxblood blouse can update your stalwart office basics, like your pencil skirts and basic pants.

Rugged Oxblood

Oxblood and denim; can a color combination be any more perfect for fall?  Here, a casual sweater in the rich shade and a cloche hat looks perfect for the weekend when paired with a basic tan suede boot and bag along with a complementary scarf.  This look has early fall written all over it.
