Color Me Oxblood

 

 

Emerald may be Pantone's color of the year, but it's oxblood that has been getting all the buzz. And yes gentlemen, even for you, color matters. So if you're a bit hesitant to start with green (see "Color Me Green"), oxbloods broody but sexy hue may be the way to get your toes wet. Expect this color to be hot for Fall, but if I were you, I wouldn't wait that long. Get a jumpstart by incorporating it into your Spring wardrobe. I think pairing it with a slim, denim button-down is a rugged way to go dandy. Add a driving cap and specs to build on the look. I love the idea of a pocket square. It's so unexpected in what's basically a denim-on-denim ensemble. Last, but not least, bring it back to casual with a pair of Converse by John Varvatos.
