Darlings, I just KNOW that you were eagerly awaiting this post on this Super Important Fashion News that I plan to think about for zero seconds and then promptly ignore!
There it is, looking actually kind of yummy, but don’t you be fooled!
The fact is, this color comes way too close to Dead Liver to look good with many complexions, and I haven’t seen one model of color wearing it in any of the fashion spreads.
Yea, skinny white lady. You look fine, especially with no head.
I think for many of us, though, this is a snappy accent color best worn away from the face. Think shoes and bags and other accessories:
Lust! These are by Seychelles and are on sale today at Gilt.com for $39. Don’t say I never did nothin’ for ya.
Women of all skin tones can rock this color below the waist — again, I caution that it can age or wash out many complexions. Of course this skirt is too short for the likes of us, Reverend Ladies:
Marsala would be beautiful in tights, huh? I’d wear them with navy or black or charcoal.
As ALWAYS with trends, you must interpret for yourself. Never blindly adopt a trend without working on it so that it suits you personally. Many a fashion disaster is avoided that way. For instance, you can go with marsala in a brighter version with more cherry in it to flatter your own coloring. This color is gorgeous on many people and avoids the purplish corpsey undertones of the Pantone version.
I myself will be insisting that all my Personal Butlers be clad in Marsala aprons when they bring me my tea in this year of Marsala.
Thank you, Garrett. That will be all. You can get started on dinner now.
