If you had your eye on the spring/summer 2024 runways, you would’ve noticed one particular shade popping up again and again. From bags to boots to tiny tops and leather skirts, oxblood red established itself as the undeniable colour of the season. Moody, dramatic and more mature than its vibrant red counterparts, oxblood lends itself perfectly to autumn dressing. It’s also one of the most versatile hues out there.

Whether you incorporate it in splashes (think accessories like bags or shoes) or go full monochrome, there are so many ways to wear the colour of the season. Here, we pick four key pieces to inspire your oxblood red ensembles.

One statement piece

Build your outfit around a statement oxblood piece, like this trimmed wool dress from Gucci. The bold hue speaks for itself, so accessories can be kept simple. Think neutral hues for shoes and bags, or go all-out Gucci with the house’s signature logo canvas.

A chunky loafer

A beautiful loafer will carry you through the seasons year after year, and these playful ones from Ferragamo put a twist on the classic. In the colour of the moment with gold detailing, these shoes add just enough colour to elevate any outfit.

The everyday bag

Just because you wear something everyday, it doesn’t mean it needs to be ordinary. This moody oxblood hobo-style bag from Saint Laurent puts a luxurious spin on the everyday handbag. Pebbled leather and gold hardware make it unmistakably opulent.

Mix and match separates

Hard working pieces you can mix and match are the backbone of a well-considered wardrobe. These elegant tailored trousers from Fendi add a pop of colour without being over the top. Pair it with the matching blazer for maximum impact.
