If there’s one colour of bag that I want to add to my collection right now, it’s Oxblood. I’ve never really paid this hue much attention before, writing it off as a bit drab and too ‘grown up’. But in the past few weeks, it’s pretty much all I can think about. Sure, tan and black bags will always be wardrobe staples. Classic and reliable, they go with most outfits, can be dressed up or down and won’t make you stand out from a crowd.
But if you fancy a modern twist on a classic colour combo, then maybe Oxblood is worth another look. Surprisingly, this shade looks great throughout the year. It’s not as harsh as black in the summer and it’s bolder than tan for the winter months. Oxblood, dark blue denim and a crisp white shirt go together like a match made in style heaven and even a light and airy sundress isn’t overpowered by this new neutral.
Don’t believe me? I’ve pulled together a few looks to share the Oxblood love.
