Oh Marsala, is it already time for us to part? This month seemed to zoom by but I’d like to think that my reluctance to move on means that Marsala has staying power. Probably because it isn’t just a winter color. Take some time to experiment with unexpected color combinations and textures with your Marsala pieces and you’ll see that you can take this color from January all the way through next fall. Any neutral outfit paired with Marsala will do well in the warmer months. It’s a warm color so get to know your golden yellows and metallics, they will be your friends in spring and summer.
But today is January 27th, the middle of winter, and we’re here to take Marsala into Valentine’s season and really emphasize that it is a sensuous, romantic color. We’ve got Marsala date night outfits, and I’m showing you how to add some cheeky pieces. Hearts, arrows, XOs. Anything to spice up a regular date night outfit.
Pairing Marsala with a skirt in the same color family gives the outfit visual depth and richness. With the colors being so close, it really makes for a romantic color combination. Throw on a leather jacket and paint your nails a deep red for a sexy edge. And speaking of edge, have you ever tried a body chain? Coupled with some arrow earrings and a gold cuff, the girly glittery accessories meshes seamlessly with the leather jacket. Sugar and spice and everything nice.
If you’re going for a Marsala dress, make a big statement by wearing a fur coat on top. It’s winter so your fluffy pieces are still needed and you’ll want to keep warm without requiring a ton of extra layers. The coat might be extravagant but your shoes? chic and flat. A vintage bracelet, simple studs, and a heart shaped necklace give you some much needed bling but the best part is the “Be Mine” clutch. How cute is that?
