OxBlood Red!

This fall the designers’ fav shade of red oxblood!
(aka crimsom, bordeaux, sangria, merlot, burgundy, maroon).

This fabulously rich shade of red was used generously from outerwear and accessories to evening gowns! This small selection of items includes a Michael Kors handbag, Alexander McQueen eveningwear, booties and handbag. I’m not sure what Chelsea is wearing in this issue of Marie Claire but that it is this month’s cover color is further evidence of this color’s popularity for fall! On me (I apologize for the cell phone dressing room pic!) is a BB Dakota suit that has incorporated another trend of fall – leather! The jacket has a slender leather lapel that adds that needed edge to break up the full block of color! It is available for purchase at Parc Boutique!

If you are a little less apt to wear a full on red anything, then pair another fab fall trend! Wear nudes or lace with a pop of this shade…add in ox blood red nail polish and lips, or a red scarf, purse or piece of jewelry! This bold and beautiful hue is sure to make people stare…for all of the right reasons!
