Fall Color Trend: Oxblood

Despite the somewhat ominous name, oxblood – a bold cranberry/burgundy shade – is one of the hottest hues for fall. This color plays well with gold, chambray and solids and can add a bit of mysteriousness to your existing wardrobe staples.

To ease into the trend, start by wearing a pair of oxblood heels with sleek skinny jeans and a blouse, or highlight your neutral pieces with a rich handbag in the shade. We’ve included a widget at the top of this post with style ideas for your perusal, so don’t be afraid to get creative.

Here, some other ways to wear the trend:

  • Vamp it up with an oxblood nail polish. This color will look best on short, slightly rounded nails.
  • A pair of pointed booties over a pair of opaque black tights and a form-fitting dress is perfect for a night on the town.
  • Wear a scarf in this bold hue to help you keep fall’s chill at bay while looking super stylish to boot.
  • Fedoras or cloche hats are cute, comfortable and just a little bit mysterious when done up in this rich red shade.
