Did you know neutral colors that include pretty shades of red, peach and pink are a big trend for the fall season? It’s true! On the lighter end of the color spectrum, we’re grabbing for peach and on the darker end, we’re opting for a deep rouge or burgundy. Dallas designer, Ashlee Brooks, has based her fall 2012 collection on the rich, luxurious hue of the season known best as “oxblood”. On a side note, we love that color name, don’t you? It’s a dark, dull, reddish-brown or blood red. Well, as the hottest color of the season, we must all be sure to incorporate oxblood into our fall/winter wardrobes. And with the help of Ashlee Brooks, here’s how easy it can be!
To display and prove that pretty, neutral peach hues are appropriate for fall, we have taken a peach leather jacket and paired it with an Ashlee Brooks Collection A-line mini skater skirt in “merlot” or oxblood. We’ve completed the look with a pair of peach crocodile-embossed smoking slippers, peach silk scarf, and brown Balenciaga “work” bag with giant gold hardware. On the beauty end, we’ve applied an oxblood lip and manicure. An easy look to put together that’s to die for during these chilly months!
Sometimes, it’s too easy to be pulled in to a dreary winter mood by avoiding pretty neutrals and instead representing in all black clothing – black shoes, black jackets, black bag, etc. That’s all wrong! Enough of the depressing in all black garb ladies, seriously! Opt for lighter shades, especially pastels, during the fall and winter months…it is not a faux pas. Actually, if done right, dressing in pretty peach mixed with oxblood can uplift your chilly mood!
