Oxblood is a dark red color with hints of brown or purple. You may call it maroon, burgundy, cranberry, or wine, but oxblood is fall’s hottest color. Whether I am in class, hanging out with friends, or shopping in town, this color is everywhere! Oxblood is an especially popular color for jeans this fall. My best friends got me that essential fall wardrobe piece for my birthday, and I’ve been having so much fun dressing it up with a flirty tank or dressing it down with an over-sized sweater (also fall essentials!).
However, oxblood’s popularity extends far beyond jeans. I see it on everything from shirts to dresses to leggings, and thanks to Lululemon’s fall line, I can even look stylish in everyone’s new favorite color while working out!
This deep red has taken Northwestern by storm. We may bleed purple, but we wear oxblood.
