Oxblood. A descriptive word for a reddish brown color. Sounds a bit intense though, hey? Well whether the word gives you nightmares or not, these looks will be sure to fill you with joy and desire. Not only has oxblood been the color du jour all season, but what better time to experiment with it than during the holidays when rouge is all over the place. Why don’t we call it a, less assertive, more chic red? Whether its head to toe, or just a hint on your nails or lips, it definitely calls for attention with its rich, luscious hue that easily melts into any wardrobe. My personal favorite oxblood look right now? Denim – a super wearable, and well deserved change, and the perfect opportunity to fall in love with Canadian denim designer, Triarchy. So let’s be merry this time of year, in a variation that is much different than usual.
