Oxblood: The Color Of The Year

Wine is an accessory which instantly makes a woman look classier– as long she is not holding her fifth glass… which is beginning to leave a ring of reside on her teeth. The magic works similarly in your wardrobe. The hue looks expensive and grown-up. This season  the new color to stock up on is called oxblood, slightly darker than wine and often with more of a sable undertone than purple. While neon pants are still a bright idea this month, it is predicted they will slowly be fading into oblivion, replaced by moody shades like burgundy and midnight blue. Gothic lipstick will likely be returning to the shelves as well. But don’t throw out your blinding multicolored sweater just yet; when winter blues hits, it’s nice to trade in dark colors for something cheerful every once in a while. These are my picks for clothing in oxblood:

Cardigan, Banana Republic- $40

Cole Haan Shoes, Zappos.com- $200

Purse, ShopRuche.com – $45

Bag, Pour La Victoire, Saks Fifth Avenue- $79
