I think that everybody should explore a new colour each season. I know I for one could certainly use a bit of that excitement. This fall? Try Oxblood. The beauty of this colour is that if you're more of a shades and tones kind of gal (read: blacks and grays), it will mesh wonderfully with the rest of your wardrobe.
Unsure? Start with something small, like a lipstick (like the above Nars 'Volga', or Mac's 'Media') or a mani (like Essie's 'Burgundies'). Or, if you're like me and are ready to take the plunge, the cambridge satchel variation is amazing (hello xmax gift idea!), as is the AllSaints 'Sagan' blazer, or these 'Larson' booties from 80%20. Last but certainly not least, you can (and should) tuck your girlies in this sassy animal print number from Agent Provocateur.
