FALL Color Trend: Oxblood!

Oxblood, Maroon, Merlot, Bordeaux, Burgundy..whatever you call it: This color is one of Fall 2013's most popular colors. 

I always enjoyed Autumn because of the rich colors of forest green, mustard, pumpkin, and Oxblood that mimic the colors of trees at this time of year. The color is very luxurious when it comes to leather goods including heels, purses, wallets, and even gloves. Also, since it is similar to the color of wine it works well with satin and silken fabrics that catch the light. Think of it, as practically a new neutral color as it compliments every skin tone and goes well with all your basic pieces like dark wash denim or a nude heel. This new color is not just as a way to spice up current basics, but also a way to become a staple shade in your fall-winter wardrobe, whether it be a pair of maroon jeans, a bordeaux blazer, or a merlot nail varnish. 

What are your thoughts on this color? Any other favorite fall colors on your back-to-school checklist?
