At this point, you probably know the 2015 Pantone Color Of The Year is Marsala, a muddy maroon-ish hue, reminiscent of '90s lipstick. While it's undoubtedly more muted than previous selections, like Tangerine Tango, Emerald, and most recently, Radiant Orchid, the shades is about to be everywhere. And, we need not look further than Instagram to see that celebrities and fashion influencers alike have been embracing Marsala as the new neutral, and even before Pantone made it official.
We love that the reddish brown tone lends itself remarkably well to different fabrics — like Beyoncè's leather pants or Miroslava Duma's suede cape. Plus, we've see it in accessories, embellishments, and even beauty trends. And, while Marsala particularly captures the warmth of fall, it's virtually seasonless, unlike its vibrant predecessors. To celebrate the year's It color, and learn how you can incorporate it into your daily wardrobe, click ahead for inspiration from the stars.
