I’m not one who follows color trends. This year, however, Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala, much like fortified wine, is getting under some people’s skin. I’m likewise not a fan of muddied red. A darker shade of brownish red, maroon, is the color I least like. It kinda makes one look older when you’re all covered in it. Lately, though, I came to appreciate this earthy red —  in minimal amount, it can add some sophistication to an otherwise flat ensemble.  On the lips, it can pop some sultriness to the pout.

Pantone’s particular marsala is on the dusty side, so very vintagey, so very 70s. I would choose deeper shades, as an accent perhaps.
