Fall's Hottest Color Has a Really Gross Name

Say What!? 25

Ann Taylor

Want to be on top of the trends this fall? Well get used to the idea of wearing oxblood.

Oh yes.

Oxblood.

That's the name of the color designers are mad for this season -- and if you can get past the name, it's actually a lovely color that looks good on most women.

Take this wrap sweater (Ann Taylor, $69) for instance. It would look fantastic on so many figures and skin tones.

OXBLOOD, FTW!

Will you wear this color, despite its disgusting name?

BB Dakota

I'll tell you one thing -- I'd wear this Anne Vest (BB Dakota, $89) in a heartbeat. Not only is it very current, it would go with so many different looks. This vest is pure win.

 

Farfetch

Multiple celebrities have been spotted out and about in this oxblood Alexander McQueen skull print scarf (Farfetch, $343). No, I can't afford it either, but I can't help loving it, can I? Get a cheaper scarf in oxblood and you'll still look hot.

 

Charlotte RusseOne thing you probably can afford is this oxblood midi dress (Charlotte Russe, $22.99). Put a blazer or cardigan over it and you're good to go.

 

ASOS

Another hot way to get the look is with a pair of oxblood Falke Pure tights (ASOS, $27). I would totally wear these (although I might look for a less expensive pair). How about you?

 

AllSaintsAlso in the look-but-don't-buy category for me -- this fabulous oxblood bikers jacket (AllSaints, $700). I am crazy about AllSaints, even though I can rarely afford it. When I win the lottery, you know where I'll be.

 

Nordstrom

More realistic is this lovely oxblood Elise pendant necklace (Nordstrom, $52). This would look SO good on you.

 

Free People

I've become a big fan of Free People lately, and I'm craving this oxblood oversized sweater coat (Free People, $148). We all deserve one, don't we? DESERVE.

 

Charlotte Russe

The most cost effective oxblood option is this mock neck tank (Charlotte Russe, $17.99). I love this, particularly as a layering piece or on its own in the summer time.

 

Topshop

Finally, you'd be so twee with your own oxblood iPhone purse (Topshop, $28). What? Your iPhone doesn't have its own purse?! WHY NOT?!

What do you think of oxblood?
