So, the color of the year 2015 becomes Marsala.
Sicilian wine Marsala, which granted the color with its name, is strong and sweet. Admiral Nelson one said that “it is worthy of a meal of most fastidious Lord”. Another curious fact about Marsala is that the after the victory at Trafalgar the British gave the wine the second name – The Wine of Victory.
Marsala color is rich and deep. It looks classy both when used on its own and when contrasted to other hues. There is a fleur of mystery around it – it’s restrained and sexy simultaneously. It’s hearty yet stylish, it radiates confidence and makes an impactful statement.

How to Wear a Marsala Dress?
A Marsala evening dress will contribute to your elegance and sex-appeal quite a lot. It is very appropriate to put it on going to any glamour event – a festival, s staff party, to dinner at a restaurant, etc. You are going to a wedding of your best friend? – It’ll be an up-to-date and a very smart decision to wear a Marsala dress.
Despite the fact that Marsala color can hardly be called bright in the truest sense of the word, it is mighty deep. It means that your Marsala dress won’t require much jewelry and accessories. I dare to say that a pair of beige shoes and a clutch in the same color will usually suffice to make a showstopper effect. You’ll be a diamond and your Marsala dress will just frame you, and that will be it.
However, if you have a handbag and shoes in any color that matches well with your Marsala dress (please, note Marsala sometimes has more red in its undertone and sometimes there is a bit more brown hue in the color than a red one), you can easily combine them with your piece of clothing. The only exception is a Marsala lace dress: it is so self-sufficient and decorative on its own, that I would recommend you to pair it with beige, black, white or tone-on-tone shoes and a bag.
