Color of the Season: Oxblood

Have I mentioned at least ten times here in the last few weeks how much I love Fall?  Because I do; I really really do.  And the colors of Fall are no exception.  I’ve always loved a vampy red, a deep burgundy, an almost-black oxblood, and this season, in everything from fashion to beauty, shoes to handbags, and so much more, Fall trends are including the deeper darker shade.

So far, I’ve painted my nails a few different shades of the vampy maroon color (and I can’t get enough), and last week I bought my first wine-colored purse (worn here), but I’m dreaming of incorporating more oxblood maroon into my actual wardrobe. I would love a pair of oxblood-colored loafers and a plush scarf in a warm wine or berry is high on my list too.

Have you made any oxblood-colored purchases for Fall?  (And fun fact: all of these picks are from Target, so you can not only jump right on trend with Fall’s hottest color, but you can do it at a great price!  I heart Target.)

    Burgundy just screams fall to me–that leather cap sleeved dress is fantastic!

    I love that snood scarf, I almost bought it in olive last time I was at Target, but managed to leave with just what I went in for. How dangerous that store is for my wallet!

      I’m SO impressed; I can’t ever seem to walk out of Target with just what I went in for!

  5. Loved this post! Love this color!

    Target controls my bank account…I can’t walk out of there for less than $100! It’s pretty sad! They have so many great things for my closet and home!

      That is too funny – and I can completely relate! Their home goods are equally awesome.

    I have been a huge fan of oxblood ever since it became THE color last fall. It is so rich and easy to style! I purchased oxblood cords last year and wear them all the time!
