A Tasteful Hue: Marsala!

Drop everything! (drumroll please…) Pantone’s color of the year goes to #Marsala. It’s on everyone’s radar now. When I heard that Marsala is Pantone’s pick as Color of the Year, I couldn’t  be more thrilled  as this shade has been a favorite among the stylish set. Many shades of  mid-tone red showing up in magazines, stores, and on stylish celebs. 

“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.

I guess I was really on top of trends when I blogged about  oxblood just a week ago, since oxblood/burgundy is a similar color with a similar origin (although oxblood/burgundy is a purer—and prettier(for me)– darker red which lacks the earthy brown notes of Marsala).
Marsala is a vivid hue. If you want a glamorous effect on your ensemble just add Marsala. It accentuate different colors and draws attention to other things you might not even notice. Pantone’s top  hue  is  a complete departure from the brightness of past years’ picks.
Lovely ladies let’s rock shades of  natural earthiness! Let’s always feel an affinity for warm and rich wine colored hues. Bright colors are so yesterday, hello Marsala!
