If this season has a color, it is most definitely oxblood. The deep, gorgeous hue, a combination of red wine and burgundy, is everywhere this fall. Alexander Wang, Rodarte and Saint Laurent are just a few of the designers whose runways featured the rich shade. Designers are using this bordeaux shade on everything from dresses and jackets to nail polish. Don’t let the strange name put you off; it won’t take long to fall in love with this color.
This week’s Fashionista demonstrates the perfect way to use oxblood to create a cute and casual outfit that's perfect for a day of classes. Layering a graphic T-shirt and chambray button up with her oxblood skinny jeans and combat boots, the result is an effortlessly stylish look. Try these jeans from Nordstrom to recreate the look.
There are countless ways to incorporate this gorgeous, universally flattering color into your wardrobe this fall. ASOS has an entire section of their website dedicated to the color, featuring everything from metallic sheen blazers to knit hats and scarves. These lace shorts from Madewell would look fantastic paired with black opaque tights, booties and a flowy blouse or chunky sweater. Now that we're approaching the holiday season, there will be tons of occasions to try out your new favorite color. For a holiday party try this cutout dress from Free People with tights, heels and a cropped leather jacket. There’s really no way to go wrong with this versatile shade, so don’t be afraid to mix it up!
