Marsala is a favorite color for 2015. There are two things that should make you excited about this hue—it flatters most skin tone and it´s equally appealing to both men and women. That means, you can wear this color trend to the office and not look too feminine at all, and yet when you wear it outside work, it has that dramatic effect which richness encourages you to be more creative.
It´s time to go back to our earthy roots while still sending the message of glamour and luxury. Here are six ways you can wear the rich Marsala color this fall.
1. Head to Toe
Jacket, Sweater, Skirt, Clutch, Sandals
How do you do the Marsala color without appearing too over the top? The key is playing with texture, layers shades of Marsala color, and prints.
If you take a good look, the sweater and leather jacket have the same shade of wine—allure—and yet the leather complemented the texture of the rayon sweater. And then the luscious nebula print pencil skirt offers a nice break on the solid, giving balance to your head-to-toe Marsala look.
2. Midi Dress
A midi sheath dress is a versatile work outfit essential. This fall though, why not invest in a Marsala midi sheath dress? To look powerful to the office you simply have to add a black tailored jacket and black pointed toe pumps. But after work, be creative with a lime cardigan and some strappy high heels.

3. Cocktail Dress
I love the soft boxy look of this cap-sleeve cocktail dress in silk. It has a princess silhouette that makes any lady adorable on her special cocktail party. You only need a sequined jacket to top the drama this Marsala dress can offer, while keeping the rest of the outfit minimal—Mansal satchel handbag and black pumps.
4. Scarf Accent
How do you accent a wine fit and flare midi dress? Add a gray silky scarf accented with Masala floral print! By adding black and white accessories, you keep the look less but more.
5. Sheath Dress for Work
It´s another sheath dress for work especially for the modern power girls. It features the of-the-moment side panels but this time, your eye-catchy color is Marsala. This entire outfit is work ready. Just add a wine satchel bag and the dark wine Sassicaia pumps.

6. Casual Combo
And this is my favorite, the casual combo for fall! I heart this Vintage Oxblood top from True Religion. And I like to wear it with white shorts (white jeans would work too). Polish up the outfit with a nice print scarf, a Marsala hat and bag, and some Bordeaux riding boots. the result is truly exquisite.
Now over to you, girls. How are you incorporating the rich Marsala color to your style this fall?
