Merlot, burgundy, oxblood … I honestly couldn’t tell you the nuances between the names, but I can tell you that Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year is right up my alley. Marsala is a dark shade of red-brown. It feels rich, but earthy. It makes for one sultry lipstick or a fierce pair of heels, and it’s the perfect way to add a touch of color to a sea of black and grey. Dress it up with a long-sleeve frock and over-the-knee boots or keep it casual with a pair of fluid pants and a cozy sweater. This moody hue is stickin’ around for a while.
