Simply Red

This is another outfit that made me go through my archive to make sure I haven’t worn it before. The pants and the shirt are such favorite of mine that I’m surprised I haven’t thought of pairing them with each other. Expect to see a lot more of the pants in the coming months, since “oxblood” has been declared a color of Fall 2012 by… someone. I kid, of course. I don’t follow trends that much. Especially in this case, when I think the fashion world just started calling that color “oxblood” so they could trick plebs like us into buying a bunch of new things without knowing that it’s actually maroon/burgundy/simply red (I couldn’t resist the pun. Anybody even remember that band?)

Shirt: H&M, Pants: thrifted, Brooch: vintage

  1. I prefer the terms wine, merlot, and crimson to oxblood… and I wonder why they chose “ox”- why not goatsblood or llamablood or monkeyblood? All equally horrible!

    I refuse to use the term ‘oxblood’. Fancy shmancy way of saying maroon/red :D Love your pants with the striped top.

    Stopping by from Pleated Poppy– I love your pants! I have a pair in a similar shade, and they seem to go with everything!! I have to restrain myself from wearing them all the time! You look great :)

    I agree with your oxblood analysis 100%. I think the fashion industry thinks we’re all stupid, and don’t realize that oxblood is actually a color that has been around FOREVER.

    But. I do love how it looks with the blue. Those pants fit you like a dream :)
