Pantone Names 2015 Color of the Year; Wine Lovers Rejoice


Move over delicious chicken dish: Marsala isn’t just about flavoring food and pleasing palates any more. Worldwide color authority Pantone® has officially named Marsala as the Color of the Year for 2015.

An earthy red with warm undertones and hints of chocolate, it’s a strong-yet-subtle hue that pairs best with equally rich shades or polished neutrals:

Color of the Year


The Full Monty
Accent a figure-flattering A-line dress with a structured cuff. Elie Tahari Linore dress, $398, Saks Fifth Avenue; RockSaltVintage Large V Cuff, $70

Neutral Territory
