September Issues Volume 2: Oxblood Obsession

For the second installment of the September Issues, I want to talk about the color oxblood. It first became a thing last fall, but I’m happy to report that it’s back in action for fall 2014.

In case you aren’t sure what color I’m speaking of, oxblood is a super rich, deep, purple-y red that’s almost kind of brown. Merlot, if you will. Oxblood is at its best when used as an accent piece (think a pair of boots or a leather skirt), and looks best with neutral colors like navy, camel or grey (or even camo??). Though, there are some really interesting color combinations that I’ve been seeing, like these looks from Phillip Lim:

Here are a few gorgeous oxblood pieces I’m dying to get my hands on. How would you wear oxblood this fall?
