Despite the morbid moniker, Oxblood is undeniably one of this season’s hottest hues. The rich burgundy shade flatters a wide variety of skin tones and plays well with fall friendly jewel tones. No wonder it’s the must have fashion and beauty color! Here are 4 super stylish ways to get in on the trend.
Glam lips: One of the easiest ways to transition your look into a new season is to revisit your makeup routine. Update your hot pink statement lip from spring with a sultry oxblood lip. Sophisticated and mysterious, a deep dark lip is just what the beauty doctor ordered for fall. Execute this winning trend with a few choice selections from our beauty bag must haves.
Vampy tips: Wearing digits decked out in color fit for a vixen should be on every girl’s beauty to do list. After spotting sexy oxblood nails at the fall runway shows, we instantly fell in love with the murky manicure idea. Go ahead and try one of our favorite nail trends, you won’t be able to stop starting at your hands!
Hot hued accoutrements: A well placed oxblood accessory adds the perfect dash of color to any ensemble. We’re guessing that’s the reason Miranda Kerr has topped off so many of her looks with a classic burgundy bag. A similarly stunning effect can be achieved with oxblood scarves, boots or pretty much any other accessory you can think of. In short, consider oxblood as a wear with (almost) everything accent color.
All about oxblood: Along with fashion forward black and blue combos, now is a great time to welcome a few oxblood pieces into your closet. From pencil skirts at Peter Som to coats at Rag & Bone, the fall 2012 runways were full of oxblood wardrobe inspiration. Thankfully, this color not only looks great in the realm of fashion theater, but it’s also easy to pull off in real life. The maroon hue makes every item it touches feel instantly more luxurious and cozy.
