Oxblood – the colour – has received the fashion industry’s stamp of approval for Autumn/Winter 2012 and, like all good trends, it seems to have started with the Duchess of Cambridge. With Princess Charlene of Monaco showing up to Akris’ Paris Fashion Week show last week in an oxblood sheath, it seems other royal ladies are quickly falling in line. Catherine (ah, let’s just call her Kate Middleton) was most recently spotted in an oxblood-coloured suit by Paule Ka.
Thankfully, you don’t need to rock a title to rock the trend. The trick to wearing the colour is working with rich, heavy fabrics and keeping clear of strong purple tones that will shift the tone into the ‘burgundy’ category.
