It's safe to say that I absolutely love the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015.

But wait! you ask. What's Pantone?

Pantone - according to Wikipedia - is a company known for matching colors in their Pantone Matching System used in industries such as printing, paint, fabric, and plastics. Pantone's "Color of the Year" is also a huge deal, and you'll likely see it pop up in next year's fashion and makeup (Sephora has done a couple collections with the Color of the Year in previous years; I have their Radiant Orchid lipstick from last season and I love it).

Here's why I like Marsala so much:
  • It's a neutral. It's a neutral with a hint of red in it, so it adds interest to other neutrals paired with it.
  • It's versatile. A warm neutral works well as a clothing item, cosmetic, or home decor.
  • I just love the color. It reminds me of raspberry coffee.
And here are some Marsala things I found:

Marsala Favorites

A lot of the Marsala things I came across on Polyvore (as of writing this post) have more of a red or orange tint to them. I personally like the shade that leans towards red/berry, but however you wear Marsala is up to you and what you like!

What do you think of Marsala as the color of the year? Would you wear it? If so, how?


  1. I agree...its such a warm colour....and due to the festive season there is just something about it that makes your outfit feel suitable hahaha

    1. I love Marsala during the Christmas season, too! :) I'm currently loving it as a lip color. It goes with lots of things I wear.
