Pantone Colour of the Year marsala transitions to summer

In January this year, Pantone released their colour of the year for 2015. A darker shade of purple close to cranberry, it is easy to work into winter colour palettes. However, transitioning it to summer can be a little bit more difficult.

The bohemian, ’70s look that has been popularized by music festivals such as Coachella provides a great way to add Marsala into summer clothes. Flowing, sheer dresses and crochet and fringe details add a breeziness and lightweight feel to an otherwise darker colour. Below are some of our favorite pieces from brands such as Topshop, River Island, H&M, and Zara.

Click each item’s thumbnail to visit the page and purchase some pieces to help bring the colour of the year into your summer wardrobe.

When you’ve found your favourite shade of Marsala, use Comb – our favourite fashion app – to find other items of clothing in your perfect shade.
