Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute says, “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
She goes on to explain how Marsala was seen in the late ‘60s, ad into the ‘70s and a touch in the ‘80s, but it’s a very modern hue that totally suits the times.
Let’s have a look how one can incorporate this colour in one’s wardrobe. Shall we?
A colour that drolls sophistication, this colour is just perfect for office. Pair with your neutrals: a marsala sweater over a grey fitted midi dress or a sexy marsala satin top with your regular grey or black high waist pants or better still bell bottoms if you like! For a more casual outfit, you can sport a marsala blazer with a classic white shirt and black pants. And if you are already in love with this colour, you can go for a head to toe marsala outfit- a marsala dress with some statement making jewellery or a marsala jumpsuit. What say?
