Hi everyone!I hope you had a lovely weekend. The new rich colour palette to add to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe is Oxblood, also referred to as plum, berry, grape, wine and burgundy. This season oxblood is often seen in soft leathers, velvet and wool. Designers showcased this colour from head to toe on the runway.  Being such a rich colour, you can do this. Start with your lips and work your way down.
I wore the look below at the Vince Camuto Launch at Highpoint. Autumn has not yet hit Melbourne hard so I have toned down my oxblood inspired look focussing more on my accessories; my new Nine West statement suede heels and Portmans clutch. The print on my 1970's vintage jumpsuit (that I had shortened) matched perfectly.
Check out some oxblood looks I've styled for you below. This  rich red colour  can make such a bold and passionate statement to your Autumn look. Give it a go!


  1. That jumpsuit is amazing my dear! So unique, it looks great teamed with the retro sunnies and the splashes of oxblood are perfectly incorporated into this outfit! Wonderful post sweetheart :)

    Take care,
