Perhaps you've heard of a little thing called oxblood (and no, no animals were harmed in the making of this article). You may be a little confused by the name, but we'll break it down for you — call it maroon, call it reddish-purple, call it whatever you want, but the dark, sultry shade has been taking the streets (and the racks!) by storm, and we are so on board.

decades years, so it's only natural that the hue should make the jump to our wardrobes.
