fall favorite: oxblood

Fall '12: Oxblood

I'm baaaaack! I accidentally took a very long summer break from blogging, but luckily I've returned in time to share some of my favorite fall trends. First up is the color oxblood/burgund/wine/bordeaux. This hue just screams fall to me. Perhaps because it was also on my radar last year even before the big "oxblood" rebrand. It's a little icky to think about wearing an animal's blood, but it also sounds kinda badass, don't you think? I especially love the color in buttery leathers, soft suedes, skinny pants and big handbags. For some cool color pairings, try sky blue, forest green, peony, or peach. Here are a few outfit combos for inspiration, courtesy of Net-a-porter.
