Get ready to whet your fashion palate because the color of the year is sure to tempt your taste buds. Pantone, the global color of authority has chosen the color Marsala as the New Year’s most “in” hue. Fashionistas will be sipping from this delicious sort as it is a great color for beautiful dresses and beauty lovers will surely love for their makeup collection.
“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while it’s grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.” –Pantone.com
Marsala for Fashion
Marsala was a hit on the Spring 2015 runways with fashion designers featured in the PANTONE Fashion Color Report Spring 2015; Daniel Silverstain, Herve Leger by Max Azria and Dennis Basso incorporated the hue into their collections. The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant statement color when the color is used on its own or as a compelling accent when paired with many other colors.
Here is a look that we at Pearls Only have incorporated for the beautiful spring evenings. We think that Marsala is a great evening color and looks perfect with a pair of dangling pearl earrings. Adding the Keita Freshwater Pearls as an accessory gives the look of sophistication, smarts, and a little fun.
With the ever-growing popularity of floral prints and stripes, variations of this hue will undoubtedly carry into men’s and women’s clothing throughout next year. Marsala is also a popular choice for jewelry and fashion accessories, including handbags, hats, footwear and the burgeoning market of wearable technology.
This highly varietal shade combines dramatically with neutrals, including warmer taupes and grays. Because of its burnished undertones, sultry Marsala is highly compatible with amber, umber and golden yellows, greens in both turquoise and teal, and blues in the more vibrant range.
Marsala for Beauty
An incredibly versatile color for beauty, Marsala is an appealing and sophisticated shade that’s flattering on many skin tones.
Marsala pairs exquisitely with monochromatic mixes of peachy pinks, and sparkles against antiqued gold metallic, offering an assortment of lipstick and blush options. Marsala illuminates a range of smoky-neutral color combinations, making it a captivating eye shadow color that can be worn from morning until night. Add an overlay of bronze for a dramatic look that suits any eye color, or use Marsala as a go-to finishing touch on nails.
We are excited about the new color of the year because we think that during the Fall/Winter season, this will be the go to color for all of your fashion needs. We can definitely look forward to seeing it!
