Pantone Colors: Life in Marsala Color

January 31st, 2015

This post has been actually on my ‘e-desk’ for a while, I wish I could have written it earlier! Since December 2014 Marsala is not only a wine’s name coming from Sicily but also this year’s trend. This special tone is the latest of the Pantone colors selected by the trend forecaster itself.

After the deceptive ‘Radiant Orchid’, I couldn’t be happier: this specific red is one of my favorite tone and present in my closet for years already…

These items are timeless to me! I’ve found the suitcase on a flea market, I really like it.

Better knowing it now: as a special nuance Marsala doesn’t fit with all tones. It seems that the ‘no-colors’ combos are the best. Victoria Beckham paired it for example in her Spring Summer collection with beige, white and black. It looked great!

So how to pair & wear Marsala color, here some suggestions.

1. With powder pink and light grey. A no-risky choice that works most of the time.

2. With navy blue and medium grey. A kind of new classic!

3. With metallic silver and camel. Half trendy, half classic, why not?
