I’m absolutely in love with Pantone’s color of the year – Marsala. Its rich, deep color is dramatic, earthy, and sophisticated, all in one. It’s also very close to the color Garnet, which is January’s birthstone. To me, this color embodies winter and would be perfectly paired with an ivory for a wedding theme.
You will be seeing Marsala all over the fashion scene this year.
For example, American Eagle has a number of affordable sweaters featuring the rich, warm Marsala color. This waffle raglan sweater is currently on sale for $18.50.
These boots at http://www.shoedazzle.com/ are only $39.95:
Even Sephora is getting into the act – http://www.sephora.com/marsala
Of course jewelry is a perfect match for this color and I have enjoyed creating my own designs. An added bonus is that it is so similar to the Garnet color so can be used for January birthday gifts or Valentine’s day.
