It’s this season’s trendiest color. Oxblood has been all over runways, television, magazines, catalogues, shops, and blogs. You see it everywhere, or at least you think you do. This season has absolutely abused the color Oxblood, which you’d think you couldn’t get anymore abusive than calling something “Oxblood.” I don’t think any other color has been as misunderstood as Oxblood. Designers and merchandisers have been running amuck this season by taking any hue in the red family, calling it Oxblood, and it will sell, sell, sell. I’m not so easily fooled and now you wont be, either! I’m going to show you what the color Oxblood truly looks like:
Accessorize. Keep your classic winter wardrobe, that you already own and love, then just pop in whatever color trend happens to be hot at the moment with some fun and cute accessories. I’ve put together a collection of 10 truly Oxblood suggestions for you. Now, the shade you see in each image may seem to vary from fabric to fabric and because the pieces are shot under different lights, but I am confident that all the pieces I have chosen represent true Oxblood. Happy Shopping!
These are just a few great examples of Oxblood, but now that you know what true Oxblood looks like, you can go out and shop for this color trend with confidence. Hope you enjoyed!
