For this year, Pantone Color Institute hailed Marsala as this year's color.
Just like a rich red wine, Marsala is described as a combination of deep and warm red. The marriage of blood and earth, as I perceived it. Some people confused it with the color Maroon but Marsala is deeper and warmer. It has been around the fashion industry and it needs not to be explained why it is one of the most loved color by designers and fashion enthusiasts all over the world.
It couldn't be denied how color affects our mood and perception. One strike of color might change our regular day. Marsala is in itself dramatic and sophisticated. It is also ideal for beauty and fashion exploration as the shade is a very flavorful one. It is appealing and flattering for everyone and what's great is that there are variety of colors and textures that can be matched with it.
As an ode for this year's color, here are my top fashion and beauty must have finds. You know how I adore making lists so with the help of various magazines and fashion portals, here are my 2015 color of the year must haves.
