If you’ve flipped through any fashion magazine lately, then you’ve probably noticed one color standing out more then others – the dark maroon/burgundy shade otherwise known as oxblood, one of fall/winter’s trendiest hues for clothing and accessories. Don’t get creeped out by the name, like I did at first (I mean, oxblood? Really? It just sounds gross!). Oxblood is a gorgeous dark color that will look awesome in the chillier weather, when our summer neons just seem out of place… even though I wish they weren’t.
The awesome thing about this trend is that it’s totally wearable, whether you’re a fashion editor or not. There are so many ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe. To make doing that even easier, I’ve put together a little list of 20 oxblood items under $20 that you should definitely consider buying. Whether you want to make a splash with this trendy color or just want a little taste of it, there are tons of options. Check out my picks and let me know what you’ll be purchasing!
