trending: oxblood


I've been waiting to see when the brick red and taupes of the mid-90s would make a return... HERE WE ARE. It's browner than crimson, redder than burgundy, darker than scarlet, and totally on trend: 
"Oxblood."

The name is so... gory (Happy Halloween?). But it's THE color this Fall, they say.

I could see using it in small doses, but I've never been much of a red fan.

Like?

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

I love looking at red but hate it in my home or clothing.

Btw love the new look!

I saw that they say it's in fashion for lips too. Love your selections.
