Fashion Friday: Marsala

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 11.52.25 PM

I feel I wouldn’t be a good blogger, or good designer, for that matter, if I completely ignored Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year.  Today we’ll discuss fashion (since it is Fashion Friday, after all), and next week we’ll delve into interiors.

So, I have to say, I love this color.  It’s berry-like and rich like wine; it’s slightly red and slightly brown.  It would make a beautiful lip color, shoe color, nail color, blouse color…  It’s versatile, and you can’t say that about every one of Pantone’s featured colors.

I love this photo of a young Anna Wintour.  It’s so ’90s yet still so chic.  Probably because, well, it’s Anna Wintour.

These throwbacks go to show how classic this color actually is; how timeless and really a wardrobe staple.  I love that about this color.  It’s really not trendy at all.

Off the Chanel runways and basically wearable art.

This is a great example of an easy way that really anyone can implement this color into their wardrobe this year.  Black, white, and a pop of marsala with the shoes = chic and classic.

I hope you have a really great weekend!  I’ll see you back here next week.
