Dark red has many names... bordeaux, merlot, burgundy... this year it's oxblood! This version is a deep blood red with various amounts of plum and chocolate undertones. It also happens to be my personal favorite colour, so I am very excited to be seeing it all over the runways and in the streets!

The deep crimson hue is perfect for the upcoming wintery days. That rich red just gives you a holiday feeling, doesn't it? :) I've added a little inspiration below. This gorgeous peacoat below is only $75 at Miss Selfridge! 

Don a bow for a subtle nod to the trend!

Blake Lively gets it right in a
sparkling minidress.
Selma Hayek opts for drama
in a pretty pleated gown!
Model-off-duty look: leather
skinnies, booties, and a
slouchy  sweater in
complementary colours
do the trick.

Oxblood nails are vampy and classic! For lips, just add some dark mascara and  keep
everything else simple and clean.
And if you're really brave, try the colour on your eyes! Again, keep everything else simple!
