How To Wear The Color Oxblood

Horrible name aside, oxblood is a gorgeous color for fall. It’s a rich color similar to burgundy but deeper, and it screams luxury.

Oxblood goes with many colors but my favorite combinations are oxblood and black, cream or khaki and, believe it or not, it’s a beautiful offset to leopard.

Faux leather leggings or a pair of coated jeans like the ones below are a gorgeous way to wear oxblood. Pair it with any of the above colors and pumps or booties. Go wild (literally) with a leopard print blouse or be more conservative and wear the jeans with a neutral sweater.

I love a deep nail polish in the fall and winter. This nail color by RGB is so rich looking. If you don’t want to wear it on your fingernails, try it on your toes! As a bonus, this chip-resistant formula is free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).
