Oxblood – The Color of Fall 2012

Code Name: OXBLOOD

It is THE color of the season. It is dark red with a touch of brown. Think of cranberry or maroon or wine or burgundy or auburn or crimson or scarlet…well you get the picture.

If you are wondering, as I, where the name comes from…it is short for oxygenated blood, the color blood turns to when exposed to air. It is deep, dark, mysterious, and is saturating clothing and makeup this fall. From leather to lipstick, this is the go-to hue of the season. I had my toenails painted a pretty oxblood color today, OPI’s “We’ll Always Have Paris”.

Here are some of my favorite OXBLOOD fashion statements.

Fashion Faux Pas or Fashion Forward?

A few years ago if someone had suggested to me to wear socks with high heels I would have said no way. What a fashion faux pas – socks were not meant to be worn with pretty, dainty heels. Well, this fashion trend is not going away and it has definitely grown on me.

Being a cold natured girl, socks, stockings, and tights are my fashion best friends when the temperatures drop. So why not pair them up with not just boots and booties but also pretty shoes.

I especially like the over the knee socks.  Here are some of the looks I am loving right now. What do you think, a fashion faux pas or a fun fashion trend?
