I wait with bated breath year after year around this time for the Pantone Color Institute to announce their pick for color of the year. In 2014, it was radiant orchid and the year prior it was a beautiful emerald. Within weeks, nay, days, the color tends to infiltrate fashion, beauty, and interior design. Ever since the Pantone announced Marsala as the official color of 2015, I have been in a marsala state of mind.
This deep reddish-brown hue is rich in color and earthy in feel. Somehow it complements a variety of skin tones and is perfectly suitable for men and women alike. Marsala inspires color creativity, particularly with accessories and beauty. A pop of this bold hue on the lips or nails or a highlight on the cheeks can give you just the bit of drama you are looking for. Incorporating marsala into your eyewear of choice will warm up your complexion and add a sophisticated punch. What do you think about marsala?
