'Oxblood' - Sounds like an appropriate name for the Halloween season, an ingredient in a Witch's brew, but you might be surprised to find out that Oxblood is not quite as grim a term as it seems, but is actually a reference to the COLOR of oxygenated blood.
The dark, rich, brownish red hue is a little bit mysterious, and adds a lot sophistication! The addition of this highly trending color to your wardrobe, your cosmetics, and better yet -- your hair color is the perfect way to make just about anything look edgy and luxe.
Pay close attention to the runways and fashion mags for Fall and Winter 2013, and you'll be sure to see this sultry shade at every turn. The most seamless way to introduce this color to your look is by taking the plunge and switching up your color for Fall! Instead of the staple chocolate brown, and auburn reds that are so often chosen for Fall/Winter hair transitions, talk with your stylist about how Oxblood could work for you. Because of it's subtle brown tint, this particular shade of red seems to look good on everyone.
Try out a bold, matte, Oxblood lip color this fall to proudly wear the color where it can't be missed! We love Kevyn Aucoin's 'Blood Roses'. We also love the idea of deepening the standard "cold-weather red" nail color with Essie's 'Bordeaux'. Add some Oxblood to your wardrobe by snagging a pair of Coach's fierce 'Nala' heels, Hayden-Harnett's studded 'Reed Buckle Cuff', Susana Monaco's best leather piece for fall (because nothing's sexier than Oxblood AND leather), the 'Adele' dress, or a "can't go wrong" timeless handbag from Chanel. Lastly, don't forget to bundle up with some color trend staples like a cozy knit infinity scarf from Etsy seller, 'Happiknits', or a rad velvet fedora to keep your head warm, and others heads' turning to notice your impeccable sense of fashion!
