So just incase ye've all been hidden under a rock for over the past month, Pantone the 'Powers That Be' who control all things 'Colour' named Marsala as this year's colour of the year. This will basically influence what we see on the runways in regards to fashion as well as whet makeup brands release in terms of colour and shade selection.
Marsala, named after a wine & a somewhat browned red colour, is described as a 'subtly seductive shade'. It is one of those truly versatile colours that works both as a neutral or as a pop of contrasting colour depending on what it's paired with.

So what do you guys think of this years colour of the year??? Is it a shade you would wear?
