Colours We Love: Oxblood - Your New Favourite “Neutral"


Autumn marks a lot of things; leaves changing, colder weather, and most importantly, fall fashion. At DUER, we’re embracing the Autumnal changes with the introduction of seasonal, darker hues, namely our newest wash: Oxblood Red.

Over the years, Oxblood has seen increasing popularity, and this year it was even named one of Pantone’s colours to watch in 2017. Considered the perfect combination of Marsala and Tawny Port, Oxblood is universally flattering and extremely easy to wear, making it the obvious choice for our newest wash at DUER.

Available now, Oxblood will elevate your fall wardrobe without being intimidating; if you suffer from “colour-phobia” this won’t be a far departure from your standard neutral pant, in fact, you can consider this your “new-neutral” for Autumn.

As a quasi-neutral shade, Oxblood tends to go with pretty much everything, making it easy to dress up, or down. Here are some of our favourite Oxblood colour and style combos.

Navy with Oxblood

Yes, we’re sure: a colour with a colour. A nice navy dress shirt along with a pair of tailored, Oxblood trousers has never failed anyone. Whether you elevate this look with a blazer or keep it simple with a pair of white sneakers, you really can’t go wrong.

A Blazer with Oxblood 

Dark colours are naturally more often associated with a formal outfit. Pairing a blazer with an Oxblood pant may be one of the only combos that you can easily tone down or dress up depending on how it is styled. A nice Oxblood pant, a tailored blazer, along with a white t-shirt can transition well from day to evening. Need a look for the office? Change from the white t-shirt to a dress shirt and you’ll be all set!

Khaki and Oxblood

If you haven’t already invested in a nice brown or khaki sweater for the fall season, now would be a good time. Trending along with Oxblood this year is brown hues, ranging from Oatmeal down to a deep Mahogany. Personally, we’re a fan of a timeless khaki sweater with, you guessed it, a pair of our Oxblood trousers!

The great thing about all the above? They’re all transitional and will effortlessly take you from day to night, and season to season.
