MARSALA Inspired Fashion Options - Wear the #ColoroftheYear

The Pantone Color Institute has chosen a color of the year every year for the last 25. They recently announced Marsala as THE color for 2015. Why Marsala? Because it’s appealing to both men and women and it evokes a feeling of the earth as well as the elegance of a fine Marsala wine. They envision this “hearty” tone on everything from clothing to home furnishings. 

But can this color take center stage in nail colors, make-up, home furnishings, and fashion? Probably. It feels a lot like the deep burgundy’s that were popular in the early 2000’s. The very same color most of us are removing from our homes now because it feels outdated. Who didn’t paint their interiors in the Tuscan influenced gold and burgundy hues just ten years ago. And who isn’t still weeding out the jewel tone from the early 2000’s as well.

What Pairs with Marsala?

Pantone recommends paring this color with “amber, umber and golden yellows, greens in both turquoise and teal, and blues in the more vibrant range.” Check out the Marsala Pairing Page for more suggestions on color parings.

Are You Ready for the 2015 Color of the Year?

What do you think – too soon to return to this color or are you ready to ditch last year’s Radiant Orchid (2014 Color of the Year) for this red-brown earthy color?
