Fall Trend Alert: Oxblood Red is the Hue of the Season

Posted on: September 14th, 2012 by Leah No Comments

The newest color trend this season is a maroon color the fashion elite are calling Oxblood.  This dramatic dark brownish red color can be found in tones ranging from bold bordeaux, deep magenta, rich crimson and more wine soaked hues.

As with any trend, I never recommend going out and buying a closet full of Oxblood because by next season this look will likely be done.  I do, however, recommend picking up a few pieces that will effortlessly mix into your wardrobe and help you achieve this trend-setting look.

One way I love wearing a trend is through a bold lip color and this oxblood color is easy to wear.  I recommend Giorgio Armani Lipstick #201 from Saks Fifth Avenue.  This sultry color will look beautiful on your pout this fall!

Try oxblood in easy-to-wear layering pieces like this ASOS leather jacket in Oxblood.  This bold color looks great paired with primary hues.  I love it paired with bold fall tones such as hounds tooth and yellow and orange.

My current obsession is oxblood hued booties and I can’t wait to purchase these by Schutz found at Piperlime.  Living in Florida makes for a fairly non-existent Fall.  With booties, I will wear this with other fall tones in lightweight fabrics that can still work in my warm climate.  (To my hubby – I would like these in a size 9 for my birthday in 2 weeks…Please….)  These will obviously look fabulous in cooler climates with tights and heavier wool skirts and dresses!

Good thing I love red wine.  It’s now going to look very fashionable holding a glass while rocking a bordeaux lip and oxblood booties paired with my fave yellow dress!

Take a look at this fashionista rocking oxblood at NYFW!  I love how she’s worn this bold tone in a printed dress and gorgeous oxblood handbag and booties!
