So long Radiant Orchid, hello Marsala. Marsala is an intriguing color. At first I was like...meh. It's an earthy brown-wine color, but it started to grow on me. While I wouldn't call it a pretty color, it could definitely be a new neutral, like navy or gray, but with more of a pop to it. Pantone calls Marsala "a naturally robust and earthy wine red" that "enriches our minds, bodies and souls." I like that it's similar to burgundy, but more rustic.
Since Marsala is a deep color it works well for dresses this time of year. It's moody but still fun. The first outfit would be perfect for a date or a casual office; pair a lace dress with a navy scarf, a navy ring, and dark brown buckle booties. Or for a party don a more fitted dress, Marsala lipstick, sparkly cuff, black tights, and black heels.
Do you like Marsala, but want to test the waters first? Wearing shoes or a handbag in the color is the perfect way to spice up your next outfit. Mix up two interesting colors: sky blue and Marsala. Wear a striped cardigan, blue lace dress, tights, and booties. Or wear something more urban: a big gray sweater, a light blue t-shirt, black jeans, a backpack, and sneakers.
