I was going to check my email on Yahoo and I seen that there was a top story for the ” Official color of 2015.” Of course this headline piqued my curiosity, I love knowing these things! When I clicked on the headline, I discovered what the headline was about. Let’s start from the very beginning though, in case some of you don’t know what I am talking about.
Since people showed an interest when Pantone, the color experts, announced the color of the millennium in 1999, they started announcing a color every year afterwords. You can see all the colors here:
2001: Fuchsia Rose 2009: Mimosa
2002: True Red 2010: Turquoise
2003: Aqua Sky 2011: Honeysuckle
2004: Tigerlily 2012: Tangerine Tango
2005: Blue Turquoise 2013: Emerald
2006: Sand Dollar 2014: Radiant Orchid
2007: Chili Pepper
This upcoming year is no different. The Pantone Color Institute announced the color of the year for 2015 not too long ago. The color of the year is Marsala.
Marsala is a beautiful earthy red with win and brown undertones. I absolutely love reds and I want to rub this color all over my face and nails! Seriously, how pretty would this be as a nail polish? The excited part is that Sephora and Sephora.com is launching a new Marsala collection on December 26. I can’t wait to see what all is in that collection!
Not only is this a beautiful color but it is said that is builds up your confidence. ” ‘…gives the feeling of groundedness, strength, and confidence,’ says Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute.” Who doesn’t want a confidence booster? I will take 3 dresses, some tights, 2 pairs of shoes, and about 5 shirts in this color!
I seriously cannot wait for all the clothes and makeup to come out in Marsala! Expecially for next winter!
What do you think about the color of the year? What are you most excited about: the Fashion or Beauty aspects? What are you least excited about?
Thank you for reading!! Until next time!
Follow your dreams and never give up!
