STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Oxblood, The Perfect Color

Style Advice of the Week

Oxblood. The word may sound questionable at first, but it’s actually one of the biggest trends this season. Seen on Alexa Chung, who paired an oxblood turtleneck sweater with an oxblood leather skirt, and Kate Middleton, who wore an oxblood double-breasted jacket and skirt, oxblood red is the perfect color for this season. The dark, rich hue, similar to burgundy, is conveniently versatile for layering and matching various items and colors, as seen on this week’s Fashionista.

Her outfit consisting of a black circle scarf, light gray knit cardigan, striped shirt and oxblood jeans combined the best of fall/winter fashion with oxblood being the star of the ensemble. She looks very cozy and comfortable, yet still stylish and trendy. There are so many ways you can wear this color. If you're going for a simple, clean look, pair an oxblood skirt with an elegant white or black blouse. If you want a more casual look, team an oversized oxblood sweater with leather leggings or shorts for an edgy vibe. To replicate this Fashionista’s outfit, wear a pair of oxblood jeans with layers of your favorite top, knit and scarf. It's also available in accessories such as wedge booties and hats.

Whether your style is relaxed, edgy, boho, classic or feminine, oxblood is the way to go this season. It's the perfect color for mixing with your favorite trends and pieces.
