Opinions on Marsala
“Marsala isn’t a color I would typically gravitate toward or wear since I prefer brighter colors. However, I think if you pair it with metallics or even a splash of turquoise or a leopard print, you’d have an adorable outfit showcasing the color of the year without drowning in it.” -Summer Goff, Junior
“I think it is pretty but if I were going shopping it wouldn’t be my go-to color. I would probably only wear it during the fall.” -Morgan Wietzke, Senior
“Marsala is a bold choice for color of the year. It can be played up with a marsala dress our understated with the use of marsala colored lipstick. I think marsala is a good choice for color of the year because as our culture is becoming more bold with fashion, marsala helps uphold the trend towards boldness.” -Julie Tyus, Junior
“I really like the color. I think it’s a god transition color for seasons and could look good on anyone.” – Sara Swan, Grad Student
