CVUK Trend Alert – Oxblood

Here at CVUK we are well and truly embracing Winter. For the past few weeks we’ve been battling the elements and coughing our way through the days, adamant that we absolutely did not need to wear a thick coat to work.

A fortnight (and copious amounts of ibuprofen) later we’ve given in and the office is a haven of knitted jumpers, knee high boots and fur scarves. Giving up our summer wardrobe did not come easily but it helps that we can’t get enough of this season’s hottest colour trend. If it isn’t in a deep oxblood red or a dark aubergine purple then it’s not worth knowing about. We’ve scoured the high-street for a selection of the finest and here’s what we came up with.

Topshop Bomber Jacket £130 (www.topshop.com)

ASOS Pencil Dress £42.00 (www.asos.com)
