Pantone’s Color of the Year- Marsala

Interesting fact for you if you didn’t already know- for the past 15 years, the Pantone Color Institute has been naming a “color of the year.” (yes- there is actually a committee that travels around the world, taking notes and voting on this) Pantone has announced that the official color this year is “marsala”- a deep red with brown undertones.

See, you learn something reading this blog 🙂

I have a friend who works for Sephora and she explained that they take this stuff seriously- targeted campaigns, advertisements, etc. Just like with fashion, there are people deciding well ahead of time what colors we’ll all be wearing a year in advance.

Have you noticed a surge in this color trend recently? I happen to like this color- the burgundy/oxblood red is a favorite of mine, especially this time of year. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite marsala looks for the fall/winter.
