Are you looking for a color the screams sexy, dramatic, rich and sophisticated, well look no further than the luscious oxblood hue. This color is sultry and really turns up the heat, even during chilly fall. Oxblood is similar to maroon except it has more brown tones that add a deeper sense of drama and depth to the color. Celebrities like Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr and Clare Danes have all stepped out in oxblood fashion this fall. The versatility of oxblood is undeniable; we have seen it on purses, shoes, dresses, scarves and even in makeup. We suggest rocking this color in any fashion you see fit, whether for work or play.

For an office appropriate oxblood look we recommend pairing an oxblood fluted pencil skin with a camel colored bow blouse.  Throw on some nude heels and you’ll be looking sultry, smart and powerful at work.  If you’re looking for something suited for nightlife we suggest pairing an oxblood peplum top with black leather pants. This look is flirty yet fierce, finish the look off by adding black pumps and gold accessories.
