Anyone who has been keeping their eye on the fashion scene would have noticed the pearl creeping back in over the last few seasons as young jewelry designers place them in unexpected places such as ear cuffs and pair them with unusual materials.

This winter, however, you are increasingly going to be seeing the democratization of that classic pearl strand as everyday street wear. Designers are pairing this classic element with denim patches, military jackets and the sports sweaters that are so very now.

This summer there is a move to softer, pastel colors in jewelry and accessories.

This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. An eclectic ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times. Remembrances of retro delights, folkloric and floral art and magical words of tropical landscapes restore a sense of well-being as we head into warmer months.

Panthone-2015

“Soft cool hues blended with subtle warm tones create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle”  says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Panthone Color Institute

How to Use the 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala

Pantone_Introducing_Color_of_the_Year_Marsala_banner

For 2015, Pantone has announced the color of the year to be the earthy brick red tone, Marsala.

Pantone_Color_of_the_Year_Marsala_Story_Three_Top_Image

According to Pantone “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”

This beautiful tone is rich and jewel-like and works in all styles.

rs_560x415-141204091626-1024.Pantone-Color-Colour-Of-The-Year-Marsala-Red-Carpet-Gowns.jl.120414Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation.

Pantone_Color_of_the_Year_Marsala_Story_Three_Image3

Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.

Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors.

An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging.

A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.

Pantone_Color_of_the_Year_Marsala_Story_Two_Image2

Jewelry in the marsala shade is going to be all the rage for 2015. Use Swarovski bicones in a variety of colors that fit with the marsala color family such as this custom coated Light Siam Volcano crystal beads.
