The new Pantone Color of the Year, “Marsala,” was announced last month, so I know this post is one in a long line of marsala-related posts already out there in the style blogosphere. I remember when in early December, a colleague asked me, “So is your closet stocked with marsala?” Gotta admit, I wasn’t sure what she was talking about (!) — at first, I thought “marsala” was a clothing company brand. But then after I looked it up, I went, “Oh! It’s like burgundy!”
The Pantone colors of the year sometimes make me roll my eyes — like with the “radiant orchid” pick last year that I didn’t even bother to blog about. But marsala, although it feels like a fancy variation on the words “burgundy,” “maroon,” “wine,” “russet,” or the 2012 mini-trend of “oxblood,” is a color flattering to many skin tones — and probably already in many closets!
So that’s what I did: I shopped my own closet and took stock of what I already have that reflects the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year.
I’ve had all these marsala-related items for awhile, and they’re all out of stock online, but below are links similar to the items I have in my closet:
I will end this post with a reiteration of my colleague’s inquiry: Is your closet stocked already with marsala? Please share and leave a comment! 🙂
