Red Hot Marsala

Source: Pantone

Pantone just announced Marsala as the color of 2015 and I’m sold. It’s a warm, earthy kind of burgundy with hints of copper and terracotta. I personally love all shades of red (did you know it increases your attractiveness level to guys?) so I was really happy to see Pantone pick this rich wine color.

For those of you going "What is Pantone and why do they get to pick the color of the year, hmm?", this color guide company combs through the entire design industry, including fashion, interiors and industrials, to find a common color theme that ties together our current trends. It’s a process that takes over 12 months to complete!

See below for my favorite Marsala red picks:

This stunning dress, perfect for a holiday dinner party! ($332)

These trousers, which would keep your legs both warm and stylish at the office. ($70)

Amazing (faux) snakeskin and velvet loafers for a steal ($30)

Or for a splurge, this slimming leather pencil skirt ($3,135)

And this classy Essie polish, which would go well with basically any outfit imaginable. ($8.50)
