Wine, berry, grape whatever you want to call it, these delicious sounding red hues have always had a special spot in our autumn wardrobes. Just don’t go calling them that though, ox blood is the vocab of choice for our beloved warm tones for the past two autumn/winter seasons at least. It’s a bit weird that we’re calling it that, why ox? Why not…starfish? Other than for obvious reasons, the term ox blood stems from oxygenated blood--the colour blood turns when it’s exposed to air (okay everyone you can put your textbooks away, recess time! Where’s my apple…)

Bold enough to make a statement, yet less daring than a bright red, ox blood is the perfect neutral to add into your winter wardrobe. It goes with pretty much everything and I’m yet to see a person it doesn’t look good on. Team it with darker colours and gorgeous smoky makeup for a look that’s fool-proof and winter perfect.
