Autumn/Winter is fast approaching – we’re thinking ahead and coveting Bordeaux hues of all things oxblood, maroon, wine and burgundy for the new season. Dark and intense it may be but don’t be fooled, this colour tone is more versatile than you’d think. Best paired against, earthy and neutral tones of grey, navy, black and white; this hue is the new way to do neutrals. Feelin’ the thirst for oxblood? Take on the trend full throttle and work an oxblood co-ord, choose it for your seasonal faux fur jacket, or opt for a more subtle take with just a pop of colour in the form of a statement clutch or ankle boots. Ditch your trusty black leather jacket in favour of a new oxblood shade, edge out your everyday look with a pair of leather culottes, or mix up your makeup and work a bold oxblood lip to add to the drama. This trend oozes rich and refined so add to the luxe and team your oxblood palette with textured fabrics of leather, animal skins, feathers and faux fur. It’s official, we’re oxblood obsessed.
