UPDATE: This story was originally published on October 22.
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. We've been big fans of burgundy (that's the name we're going with) when it comes to wine for
decades years, so it's only natural that the hue should make the jump to our wardrobes.
This season brings burgundy pieces in all shapes and sizes — from a luxe leather jacket and cozy sweaters to buttoned-up blouses. And, we've gone ahead and picked the best of the best, so you can update your closet with nothing more than a few clicks. Note: This slideshow is best enjoyed with an actual glass of Burgundy.
