The colour of the year is Marsala, chosen by Pantone, a group of experts from around the world who pick the new black.  Pantone holds two very secret meetings a year where a panel of colorists debate which colour will be the colour of the year.  Marsala is the Pantone colour of 2015, described as 'a naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls'.

At first I'm not too sure about the colour.  I find it looks a little bit dull.  Compared to previous years, Marsala is a very different tone.  In 2014 we had Radiant Orchid, a very pretty lilac colour and 2013 was Emerald Green.  I love this colour, it's gorgeous.  So I thought to look for some outfits in Marsala and I surprisingly changed my mind.  Looking at the colour on it's own, it doesn't look very flattering but when used in clothing and accessories it actually looks lovely and very rich and elegant.
