Ever since marsala was announced as Pantone’s color of the year for 2015, people have been going absolutely crazy for it. From interior decoration to fashion, marsala is definitely the IT color this year! It’s long past the point when it was primarily used in accessories and has since become a statement color. Dresses, shoes, skirts, coats, and shirts – it doesn’t matter, as long as it has marsala in it.
If you’re ready to join the style ranks reppin’ marsala all around town, here’s exactly how you can do it in truly fierce fashion.
If simplicity is your style, wear a long, thin gold necklace with a pendant over a solid marsala top. However, if you prefer to draw attention to your neckline, opt for a bold statement necklace instead. Thick faux gold chain, intricate turquoise flowers, or sparkling black crystals – choose whichever accent color goes best with your outfit and personal preference.
2. Watch Out!
Watches are finally becoming a hot new accessory again! This is great news for everyone who loves to wear things that are both beautiful as well as practical.
You already know that beige and gold elegantly complement marsala by softening its deep color and making the entire outfit look better, so choose a gold and marsala watch (like the one shown here) or try a watch that has a marsala face paired with a beige band.
Either way, they’ll stand out no matter if you’re wearing a gorgeous dress on the red carpet or lounging at home in your most comfortable sweatshirt.
Luckily, marsala is actually a neutral color, so almost any handbag will match it. Best of all, virtually every color combination looks amazing. You can easily make your outfit more feminine by combining beige and gold hues, so consider trying beige pumps with a matching clutch. You can’t go wrong.
4. Scarves and Hats
Want to make your accessories stand out? Pair a brilliant white outfit with a marsala scarf or hat! Or – you could try the opposite and rock white accessories over a mainly marsala outfit. Think a white silk scarf over a flowing marsala blouse… totally stunning, right?
Marsala’s deep, dark, red-meets-earthy shade shown next to a shade of brilliant white makes a mesmerizing contrast and you will surely be noticed wherever you go. Wear your marsala summer dress with a little white hat, white flats, and dark sunglasses, and enjoy the attention.
You don’t have to be a fashion expert to know what looks good on you, but don’t be afraid to experiment with colors, textures, and prints to see what you like the most. You’ll never find the perfect outfit without trying different things on, plus you’ll often be surprised at what great discoveries come from just trying something new!
