While the name alone conjures up gory images, oxblood is not a Halloween thing — it’s the hottest color trend of the season (meet exhibit A, and exhibit B). Though the name would suggest that we're talking about oxen, it's actually short for "oxygenated blood," the color when blood is exposed to air and turns a deep, dark red.
Now, oxblood has saturated everything from tops and jackets to dresses and pants, assuring that this sultry, purplish-reddish-brownish hue will quickly become your new favorite neutral. Click through to see our favorite plus-size picks!
