If you are a color lover like I am, you are probably familiar with Pantone. They are known as the color dictionary essentially. When anyone from a designer to an artist to a manufacturer wants to talk about color, they use the Pantone language.

Each year, Pantone declares their pick for color of the year. For 2015, they deemed marsala the color of the year.

While this rich, warm, wine red is lovely, it has been a bit tricky to incorporate into your wardrobe – until now. Whether you call it marsala, wine, burgundy, maroon, or whatever, this shade is going to be your best friend this fall!

Top 15 Picks

For now, we present to you our top 15 picks to wear now in this shade. Stay tuned next week when we will share our styling tips for wearing marsala.

  1. Holiday weekend sales: With it being a holiday weekend, of course there is a flurry of online sales this weekend. Some of my favorite offerings:
    • Banana Republic: 40% off your purchase with code “BRFALL”
