With the temperature dropping by the day most of us have started to bring out the winter wardrobe, reluctantly, piece by piece…yep, it’s cold! Why not do a little seasonal update with the 2015 Pantone Colour of the Year – Marsala.
‘Marsala’ is the lust have colour this Autumn and Winter- think pomegranates, deep cherries and red wine. This is a rich, chic and seductive colour that is warm, comfortable and luscious.
This smooth and seductive tone is well suited to the cooler months and is very on-trend! Miranda Kerr, Blake Lively and Olivia Palmero are all loving this seasons ‘it’ colour.
We have rounded up a few cost effective items (maybe just one splurge…) to update your winter look. Covering beauty, accessories and a little tip for the home, jump on board and have some fun with this years colour.
Now, how about that big glass of pinot noir?
The perfect size for travelling or heading to the markets, this marsala coloured cross-body from Country Road is super versatile. Throw it on with any outfit and there you have your splash of winter!
THE VAMP NAIL
If you don’t want to invest a lot of money in accessories then a pop of marsala on the nails is perfect. It also might be something you already have in your beauty bag. I like to use rich colours year-round as they compliment almost any outfit and is an appropriate colour for work.
