Compared to last year’s Radiant Orchid, you may think this one is a bore but take a few moments to look at it and appreciate its beauty and you’ll see how beautiful the new color of the year is.

  • JEWELRY – another super easy way to have a pop of marsala in your look is to wear it on your jewelry. You don’t have to seek out expensive gems and stones to get the marsala color. In fact, it’s going to be easier if you just go for artificial stones as color choices can be superbly varied with these.

  • MARSALA OUTERWEAR – don’t think you can commit to the color all day long? Wear the color of the ear on something that offers more flexibility like an outerwear. A marsala colored coat would look really nice against your winter white outfits. You can also get a lighter option like a cardigan or a jacket for the warmer summer and spring days.
