Marsala – I don’t think there is any need to introduce you guys to this elegant and earthy color. The wise fashion forecasters have introduced us to this warm color Marsala this year. But, at many instances we all remain confused about how to incorporate this stunning color into our wardrobes! I am listing down some stylish and easy steps on how to rock Marsala this year in this post. So, go ahead and create a sexy style statement with the color of the year!
From the past few years, Pantone had been declaring rather bright colors as the color of the year, but the biggest disadvantage of such colors was that they would not suit every skin tone. But Marsala, is different, interesting and versatile. It is a deep burgundy-wine color with some hints of muddy brown. Now, tell me which skin tone can this shade not flatter! Can’t think of any, right? Be it a romantic date, an evening event, getting all dolled up for office, being your casual best or even while riding a bike, there is no look that cannot be achieved by incorporating this color.
Pantone’s Views on The Color
The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.
“Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.”
The Versatility of Marsala
• Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation.
• Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.
• Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors
• An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.
• I am sure you all might have developed a liking towards this pretty color after such a beautiful introduction by Pantone about the color. So let’s get geared up and see the ways how to carry this earthy color into our daily styling! Ready, steady, gooooo…!!
Glam Up with Marsala Gowns to Rock The Party!
I totally had my eyes on this color ever since I saw Blake Lively wearing this beautiful Marsala gown at some party event. In fact, that was the first time I fell in love with this color. The color in itself is so beautiful that probably we might not need any accents. This gown, for example, is enough to grab a whole lot of attention! It looks very sophisticated and elegant and that might solely be because of the color. So, grab a Marsala gown for any upcoming event and be ready to become the eye candy among the crowd.
Layer Up with Stunning Marsala Jackets!
Think about those lazy mornings when you do not feel like dressing up at all. I keep experiencing a lot of such mornings, but I have finally got the solution – jackets! Jackets can actually amp up your look with the blink of an eye! Even if you have worn the most boring tee in the world, a Marsala colored jacket or probably a trench coat over it could take your fashion game up. Plus, you don’t really have to add lots of other accents. You are just ready to go! A Marsala leather jacket looks immensely stunning and will grab a lot of eyes when you leave your house! A black leather jacket is found almost in every one’s wardrobe, but shift out from your comfort zone and layer up with a sexy Marsala jacket to stand out from the crowd!
Hardworking, But Appealing!
Who says office outfits have to be boring? We have got in new trendy colors like Marsala, Navy Blue, Emerald etc that can help us to look as stylish in the corporate world as we look on those girls’ night out! It’s quite heartbreaking that everyone around in the offices wear the same old boring black and white combination. Look at this Marsala office suit. I mean, isn’t that gorgeous! Being hard working is alright, but believe me, being stylish has never hurt anyone. So, try such dresses and become everyone’s topic for watercooler-talk. If you are not comfortable with wearing the entire outfit in same color, try replacing those black pants with Marsala skinnies.
Little Marsala Dress
Want to create a rich and effortlessly glamourous look? This color could be your perfect partner. As we all have realised by now, this color complements every skin tone. Look at this dress! I nearly imagined myself in it and admired how it enhanced my beauty for a while too. But, it is not just about me. Who would not look stunning in that color. I feel every girl must have this silhouette in her collection. Plus, the beauty of Marsala gets increased tenfold if it is blended with lace and satin. So, save the picture of this dress in your mind and start your hunt!
Believe it or not, this is the easiest way to put together an outfit using Marsala. A cropped top, a plain tank top or a pair of skinny leather pants would totally do the trick for every-day casuals. Also, to raise the temperature more, don a pout in Marsala with some gold accents. We began this year with Marsala and it was winter at that time, but why not carry this trend into the summers too!
Rock your Marsala Bottoms
Marsala is a color that compliments a lot of neutral shades. If you are not sure of wearing an entire marsala colored outfit, probably a pair of skinnies or an adorable pleated mini skirt would do a fair job. A lot of people do not experiment with lowers and just tend to buy a lot of tops, tees and shirts.
Most of the people hide behind a black or rather a plain blue denim. Hence, trying out a new style with Marsala lowers would totally look different from the everyday look. Something like a black, grey, navy and beige would look really stylish with Marsala.
As a rule of thumb, bold eye makeup needs to be paired with neutral lips. But, when it comes to this sultry shade, the scenario is totally different. A Marsala pout with bold smokey eyes adds to the hotness! Also, some pretty nails topped with this color can enhance any outfit. Don’t fret about searching for such products for all the brands have already come up with new products with Marsala as their theme.
Let’s Wrap It Up!
A scarf is that one piece of accesory that can totally transform your look. A rich marsala scarf would blend in perfectly with a denim shirt or rather some cool leather jackets.
No Such Thing As Too Much Marsala!
Want to invest in a versatile fashion accessory this year? How about a warm Marsala handbag? But, since a lot of months are still left, look for a bad that you can carry in all the seasons. The versatility of this color will make the handbag compliment all the outfit ideas you try.
There are so many marsala accents you can add to your outfits like a studded necklace, sexy sunglasses or even a pair of marsala colored leather or suede boots.
I think by now I must have made you all fall in love with this gorgeous and seductive color. Either way, don’t forget to comment below. And after that, go ahead and indulge in some Marsala.
But, before ending this post, I would love to show you all how our desi girls have rocked the color so far!
