( Yes, there is such a thing as colour of the year!! In case you were wondering ).
Colour trends are closely followed and monitored in Textiles, Home, Beauty & Design.
Pantone researches the best of the best in colour as it trends throughout the year in film, photography and art before it crowns the winning colour.
This year is the year of MARSALA, a beautiful tone of bordeaux that marries well with all the slated neutrals of the moment. A rich earthy blend of burgundy and violet.
The name itself is as exotic as the colour.
I too recently shed my blondish streaks this fall for the warmer tones of Copper.
Could Marsala be next??
In my opinion, this is not the type of colour I would rush out to recolour my entire closet with.
I would however, carefully select few key pieces to update my fashion basic icons.
A stylish leather biker jacket can be a great way to bring this colour into your wardrobe, or by simply adding it in small doses through your accessories. ( A new blanket cape, a plushy sweater, and gloves).
Or maybe all you need is a glamorous "Marsala" manicure every few weeks till the next colour comes along.
