Here’s How To Wear Pantone’s Color Of The Year NOW

According to Pantone, there's a new (and maybe unexpected) color you're going to want in your closet come 2015. It's a reddish-brown hue the company is calling Marsala, after the Sicilian wine of the same name. It may not be as popular as vibrant emerald green or radiant orchid, but the dark hue took home this year's crown — due in part to Louis Vuitton's and Dries Van Noten's spring '15 collections. Which is to say you'll be seeing a lot more of it in the months to follow. Get used to it.
In the meantime, we're satisfying impatient shoppers with 11 Marsala-infused clothing items and accessories — because why wait until the New Year to wear it? If you have mixed feelings about Pantone's choice, let us know what you think after you've finished the slideshow. As for us? We're committing the shade to memory now.
