Oxblood for 2012/13
Deep red, ruby red or burgundy, the name of the colour this season is Ox-blood. Whatever you want to call it, the colour echoes hints of cranberry and burgundy adding depth to your attire. Before getting drenched in red's daring sister, ease it into your wardrobe with skinny denim or vamp things up with pointed booties and a body con dress.
From super-casual to super-sleek, on pencil cut trousers and leather rucksacks, get inspired with a hit of the season’s most fashionable shade. Already popular in the celebrity circuit – see Chloë Moretz in McQ, Leighton Meester in Salvatore Ferragamo, Elizabeth Banks in Alexander McQueen and the delightful Emma Stone who’s been since in the shade on a few occasions – the colour is widely available.
A great way to get a bit of oxblood into your life is with a strong beauty look: think a deep lipstick shade or nail colour. Or why not take advice from the ladies below who think too much just isn’t enough? Chloë and Elizabeth matched their heels, whereas Leighton and Emma both worked the statement lip.
Don't let the name give you the creeps, this bold shade is striking a major chord this season. Let Ox-blood transform your wardrobe and become your new winter staple. This gorgeous hue plays best with solid colours, chambray, and gold tones. The pieces in oxblood this season are all about texture and simple clean lines – you’ll see a lot of lace and vamped up combo’s with leather accents, but it’s just as wearable in modern dresses, tube skirts, coated jeans and oversized jumpers.
Strongly featured on the catwalks of Acne, DKNY, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang, Peter Som and Rodarte, there hasn’t been a fighting contender on the colour front this season – perhaps it’s because it’s just such a versatile colour that flatters anyone who wears it. Perhaps the most prestigious of opulent colours for autumn/winter 2012-13
