My favourite colour of the season has got to be the rich red/brown tones of Oxblood. From beauty to fashion I just can’t get enough of it! In Spring/Summer I don’t tend to wear dark colours, apart from maybe berry lipstick on a night out, so I’m making the most of them while the weather is still cold. Oxblood is a great alternative to red when you don’t want to be as daring and there’s some real drool-worthy oxblood leather handbags out there from the likes of Mulberry. I also spotted the most beautiful burgundy mac from Burberry for A/W – time to win the lottery, or perhaps save up and treat myself the following season!
Here’s a pick of some of my favourite beauty and fashion pieces in this much-loved winter colour. If you have any idea where the word oxblood comes from let me know in the comment box below… (really hoping it’s not literal!).
