Beauty & Fashion: Color of the Year

2015 Color of the Year - Marsala

Pantone’s color experts recently named Marsala the color of the year for 2015.

At For the Bride, we love this hue—a red-­brown color that evokes the richness of fine wine. We’re forecasting Marsala will be the hot hue for weddings too!

Marsala for Fashion
The full­bodied qualities of Marsala makes an elegant statement when used on its own or as a compelling accent paired with other colors. The shade combines dramatically with neutrals, including warmer taupes and grays. It’s perfect as a base color and can be complimented with blush and ivory any time of year. Or for a spring/summer vibe match the color of the year with bright golden yellows and oranges. For a fall/winter weddings, Marsala does well teal blues and vibrant greens.

Marsala for Beauty

A versatile color for beauty, Marsala is a sophisticated shade that’s flattering against many skin tones. The hue pairs exquisitely with mixes of peachy pinks - an incredible amount of options for lips and cheeks. Be sure to add a hint of bronze. And to complete your bridal look, use Marsala as a go-to finishing touch for nails.

Here, some inspiration for including this fabulous hue as part of your wedding.
