Marsala is the colour of the year and has been described by Pantone as a robust and earthy wine red. At first glance, it can be easily be confused with Burgundy, a deep wine red that has been the go-to colour in Fall/Winter 2014. But in a nut-shell, we'd consider Marsala as Burgundy's lighter-hued sibling with a touch of earthy-brown tones throughout.
So since the year has barely begun, we thought it'll be the best time to scout for Marsala-coloured items to update your fashion and beauty stash. Here's our list of 5 Marasala-hued items to get your hands on ASAP.
NARS Lipstick in Tolede
NARS lipsticks give off a creamy, sheer finish to create natural, stained-looking lips. This semi-matte formula in the shade Tolede is a muted way to incorporate a touch of Marsala into your everyday makeup look.
We love peplum tops and this Forever 21 top in a chic matalasse knit is definitely a must-have item to grab this month. It's a slightly-lighter Burgundy shade--which is pretty close to Marsala in our book. Dress this up with a pencil skirt or pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans.
Ever since Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Blushes hit the market, we've all been blushing a whole new way. This blush in Mood Exposure lets you glow in Marsala, with its soft-ambient light effect and multidimensional colour.
Get your nails in on the Marsala colour action with this Essie nailpolish in Mauves. Its chip-resistant formula will keep your fancy Marsala-themed nail art lasting all week long.
One of the quickest way to add a touch of Marsala to your outfit is with a tote bag that easily matches a number of looks. We're loving this structured bag from Modalu, perfect for pairing with a sweet, flirty dress or with a structured jacket.
