Oxblood emerges as hot color for fall

Oxblood may sound ugly, but it's the signature color for fall 2012, according to fashion experts, including retailers in Oklahoma City.

Of all the ways to update your wardrobe for fall, oxblood is probably one of the easiest and makes the strongest statement. Not only does it look good against the skin, it goes back to neutrals so beautifully, Turrentine said.

“I also think it's an ageless color that women of all ages can identify with. Older women like it and younger women embrace it as something new. Even though it's hot this year, I think it will have some endurance,” she said.

Still not sure about oxblood? Opt for a scarf, handbag or a swipe of maroon on your nails or lips. One trend this fall is to match nail and lip color to your outfit.

Whatever you call it, this color is hot.

“So if you're considering purchasing a piece in oxblood or already own something but don't know quite how to wear it, rest assured you can pretty much do anything you want with it, and you are going to look smashing,” Crawford said. “It's a good color on most, and there are so many options out there you are sure to find the right look for you. And as an added plus, it will look great for any event during the holiday season.”
