Fall Trend Alert: Oxblood, This Season’s Not-So-Red Red

The rich, dark red color known as oxblood has been popping up in street fashion and on runways alike. It's almost a neutral, but not quite, thought it pairs well with wild prints and adds a touch of dark surprise. This color especially will look perfect with your long colored hair extensions, adding the perfect amount of style to your classic look. The name evokes an old-world, class quality, similar to the houndstooth trend from a few years back, but this trend is far from dated. Here are a few must-have fall items that will look stunning oxblood.

Jeans or Pants

The colored jean is still hot, but it’s taking a darker hue for fall and winter. Oxblood jeans or pants pair well with animal print, white, or off-white tops and gold accessories. They add a touch of class to any outfit. Pair them with nude heels, brown or black knee-high boots, a wide belt, and a blousy white shirt to achieve a classic but trendy style. Skinny or straight-leg jeans are sleek and sexy. For a casual look, choose neutral or black flats, a white T-shirt, and a denim or black jacket or cardigan. Dress up the casual style with a printed scarf.

Jackets

Since oxblood is nearly a neutral, it’s a stunning and versatile color to seek out in a more expensive statement piece, such as a leather jacket or a well tailored women’s suit. A leather jacket works well with black, close-fitting pants and blinged-up belts. The suit should be worn with neutral but unique accessories and simple but well-cut shirts to maintain the chic style without overwhelming the eye. If you choose any wild prints to pair with your jacket or suit, go for small accessories with high impact, such as a leopard print scarf or shoes, or gold and silver jewelry.

Dresses and Skirts

Leather is hot this season, and a leather oxblood skirt adds just the right amount of sleek surprise to any look. (Or, for the daring and amazingly fit, leather oxblood pants might just do the trick.) If you’re looking for something a little less dramatic than a leather skirt, choose the oxblood hue in a softer fabric, such as a light cotton or chiffon and pair a more feminine cut with a black turtleneck or cardigan. Boots always look fantastic with skirts and contrast the femininity just enough. Suedes and treated leather pair well with oxblood, but keep the colors classic with this staple.
