Pantone released their color of the year for 2015: Marsala. Marsala is a wine red which is very close to a maroon/mauve color. It’s rich tones are perfect for the fall/winter season especially if you wear it in the form of something cozy, like a boyfriend sweater.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute, the company selected this color because, “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.”

Many stars have already been spotted wearing this rich color on the red carpet, including the fashion icons Rihanna and Blake Lively. Marsala is a pretty subdued color, so you can wear it in big or small doses. If you’re looking for a glam holiday party dress definitely go for one in the shade.

You can also do it in small splashes, a bold lip maybe? Boys, you can also get in on the Marsala trend with a deep red coat or sweater to add some richness to your holiday look. For a more casual look pair Marsala with a lighter color like grey, denim blue or cream to lighten it up; if you want a more dark and mysterious look pair this rich shade with black accessories.

In music news, Nicki Minaj released her latest album The Pinkprint on December 15. Also, Nick Jonas and Iggy Azalea released their 2015 tour dates. Unfortunately, neither of them have set a date in Colorado yet.
