Last year it was Radiant Orchid – for 2015, the Pantone color specialists have named Marsala, a rich reddish brown, as the color of the year – I love it! Expect to see this color not only in clothes, but in home décor, on a new Keurig System, in cosmetics….what’s great about this color is that it can be used as a bold neutral, or as a pop of color with your grays, browns, black….wear it head to toe to make a dramatic statement! Looking through my closet, I was surprised to find only one scarf and one skirt in this color – will be adding more for sure……
If you decide to add ‘Marsala’ to your wardrobe, a few tips to keep your style current:
– If you wear multiple pieces in one outfit, don’t be too matchy – it actually looks better if the colors are in the same family but not exactly the same
– Tan or nude shoes will really make the color stand out, black works, but been there, done that….
– Consider it a neutral, wear it instead of black or gray
– A Marsala jacket would be a great addition for a business casual look, yet versatile enough to wear with jeans
Marsala is a warm, earthy, sophisticated color….I already have much of this color throughout my home, as above example in my office…..how about you? Have some already? Ready for more?
