Official Pantone Colour of 2015: MARSALA MADNESS!

Big drum roll please! Colour of 2015 has been announced by trend forecasting, colour gurus at Pantone and it is Marsala. The colour was selected, according to Pantone, because it is "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."
Here's some things Marsala flavoured that will keep you on trend.
Anahata Yoga Clothing makes capris to die for! I have just received mine in the post and will be wearing them on rotation non-stop. Fortunately, all of the designs I've picked go wonderfully with Marsala. From the pale pink with polka dots to the bold teal and deep chocolate geometric print. Designed to be doing downward dogs - without the hefty price tag of some designer yogawear!

MRP Fashion handbag, star print leggings and racerback tank top are each under $15. You could buy tank tops for every day of the week and still have money to burn. This is the best budget find for everyday essentials and as a bag and shoe person, I totally recommend you get onto their shopper bags. They fit everything including your iPad. Essential!

Divine Goddess Yoga Mat because it's beautiful and you need one.

Get the look with shades that complement the deep burgundy hue of Marsala.

Australis Mint Choc Eyeshadow: this is the liquid eyeshadow of your dreams - bold at one end and natural/nude at the other. Apply both - with the beige choc shade towards the inner corners and the bold mint at the outer corners to enlarge and brighten the eyes.

Australis Kiss Me Quick and Nudie Rudie lipliners: I love a lipstick as much as the next person, but when you work out and you talk non-stop (and drink coffee and tea like you'll never see another drop again!) a liner is the way to ensure your colour stays put. Kiss Me Quick is a super bright pink and Nudie Rudie is a beige nude that is ideal alone or to provide a long lasting base for your lipstick or balm.

Rimmel Lasting Finish in Cherry Kiss: Dark, bold and bang on trend for the Pantone Colour of 2015. Looks fab when it's a bit faded for daytime or up the amp at night by colouring in the whole lip and adding gloss. Such a vamp!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Lacquers in Chalk Me Up and Sugar Fix are pastel prizewinners. I love the soft mauve beige of Chalk Me Up which is chic for work, weekends and evenings out and the pale duck egg blue of Sugar Fix will give you a grin every time you're in yoga and looking at your toes (hint: a lot). Plus it REALLY DOES LAST.
