Pantone, known as the worldwide standard for color communication and inspiration since 1963, was excited to announce that Marsala would be the “IT” color of the year. Now, before you start thinking about chicken and a great glass of wine, we want to remind you that the warm red colors have often be worn as a fashion and beauty must. Remember the “Oxen Blood” craze? Not to mention burgundies and maroons have often been fashion colors that we can appreciate for the winter months.
According to www.Pantone.com:
"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."
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.
With the ever-growing popularity of floral prints and striping, 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.
Marsala for Beauty
An incredibly versatile color for beauty, Marsala is an appealing and sophisticated shade that's flattering against many skin tones.
Marsala pairs exquisitely with monochromatic mixes of peachy pinks, and sparkles against antiqued gold metallics, 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.

Winter is here and if you’re anything like me, you too are on a mission to find the right shoes and boots that are not only warm and comfortable but also fashionable.
I was “online window shopping” for boots when I came across and I noticed that there is a trending style that seems to be making its “print” in the footwear world—lace peep-toe booties.
I found these baddies on Milanoo.com and instantly feel in love with the style and mixture of textures, but I also began to realize that with the lace front and open toe, my feet may not be so warm.
What do you think of the style?
Is it a FASHIONISTA - YES or FASHIONISTA - NO?
