Oxblood: the name alone seems kind of scary. However, the color is quickly becoming fall’s go to color, and my current obsession. I’m not going to lie, part of the reason I was originally drawn to the color was because it reminded me of wine, but who could blame me? The deep, rich, dark brownish red color gives off a romantic vibe that is bound to look ahh-mazing on all skin tones. It is popping up all over Hollywood, from the Emmy Awards, to the streets.
If you have the confidence, wear the trend as a lip color. It practically screams vixen! I suggest Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Volga – deep aubergine. If not, try the trend in anything from belts, to dresses, to handbags. Feeling bold? Pair it with a dark orange, cobalt blue, or my favorite: mustard yellow. If you’re a little more reserved, try oxblood in either gray, black, brown, or a camel color. I’m thinking an oxblood wool sweater with a black leather mini skirt paired with black leather booties or suede heels as a perfect look for a date night, where I’d be killin’ it.
