The holiday season is upon us. What this means is a lot of celebrations and get-togethers. From family dinners to drinks out with friends, office parties to New Year Eve’s celebrations, the calendar is bound to be jam packed.
In case you haven’t heard, Marsala is the colour of the year. That’s why all A-listers (both in India and abroad) are found donning this colour on pretty much all major events this year. This guide will help you make the best of this colour this season and help you look like a fashion star on all your partying commitments.
Pair it With Other Earthy Tones or Bold Colours
The colour is an earthy red wine that in itself endorses richness and sophistication. When Pantone named marsala the colour of the year, the Institute suggested that it be paired with neutral tones like greys and warm taupe or with bright greens and yellows. It is also highly compatible with umber (reddish-brown), turquoise and teal and other vibrant shades of blue.
Select the Right Fabrics to Enhance the Deep Wine Colour
For winters, marsala would be paired best with textured fabrics like knits and faux leather. For more formal wear, wine colour when paired with chiffons and silks will give your ensemble a seductive and sultry look. You can opt for a deep red jacket for your daily wear and pair it with jeans or a woollen dress in neutral tones. The colour’s versatility allows it be easily incorporated with casual as well as formal looks.
Accessorize it Correctly
If you aren’t comfortable going all out with such a deep, rich colour, then you can tone it down by pairing the right accessories with the colours of your choices. A deep wine coloured woolen scarf, a pair of wine coloured sunglasses or statement jewelry pieces would go a long way in incorporating these rich hues into your overall look. When it comes to accessorizing, the options are pretty much endless. You can pair a plain blazer with a brooch set in deep red stones or uplift your phone or tablet with a Marsala coloured casing. From wine coloured knee boots to a fedora hat, fashion lovers are leaving no stones unturned incorporating Marsala to stay in style.
Paint Yourself with Rich Wine Colour
No look is complete without the right makeup, and top brands have restocked their shelves to include this very-much-in-demand colour. Almost every stylista around the globe has donned deep wine lips by now. And the good news is- it goes well with all skin tones. So if you are worried about whether or not it would suit you, or haven’t dared to experiment with darker shades yet, then now is the time to take the plunge. This earthy tone, whether used on the lips or to paint your nails, goes just as well with fair skin tone as it does with olive, almond and even darker tones. So get experimenting now!
