I am a huge fan of the color red and of course red for christmas is always an obvious choice. Red comes in a variety of shades in the color spectrum and this year Oxblood is the red hitting the shelves for the holidays.
I sported a lovely red & black hi-lo dress for my birthday with oxblood lips (see tips below from the beauty department on how to) and I'm inspired to encourage all you non red lovers, people who say they are afraid to wear red and well the red loving gals to take a chance with oxblood.
No, you don't need to be in possesion of a MAC signature red lipstick in order to wear a beautifully bold red lip. Here's how:

Remember my post about Leather? Yup these skinny leather pants are available in oxblood
You can pair Oxblood with black, beige, gold, grey and even navy as seen above(for the more daring gals)
These lovely ladies are all sporting the Oxblood trend including Princess Kate!
