We love pairing a touch of Marsala with our Bullet Blues jeans made in the USA. This trend isn’t exactly the newest trend right now (it was all over the fashion blogosphere when it was announced as the 2015 Color of the Year back in late 2014) but here at Bullet Blues, we believe in the lasting power of this smoky, understated red, especially for fall. A rich wine color with brown undertones is an easy way to add a trendy punch to all your go-to fall favs, like blazers, jackets, and leather. Read on to learn how to wear it-color Marsala with all your made in USA faves from Bullet Blues this fall!
Even the most understated of trendy cuts and styles can be difficult to pull off in the workplace because they can quickly become outdated and look unprofessional. Colors like Marsala tend to have more lasting power, so switching out a black or tan blazer for a Marsala-colored option is a great way to give a classic look a dose of trendy color.
For a classic and professional outfit like the one shown above, pair your go-to boot cut jeans – we like Bullet Blues Babe Jour Light Blue Boot Cut jeans, natch – with a cozy turtleneck sweater and sleek pointy-toed patent leather loafers. Then pile on your Marsala accessories, like a silver-accented crossbody bag and a zipper detailed blazer. Finish the look with menswear touches in neutral tones, like a gray hat and a sleek watch for extra polish.
You may be tempted to reach for the wine color wash jeans or sweater in a similar color to step up your weekend wear game, but consider the leather jacket – even after the Marsala craze has died down, you’ll have a classic item in an iconic color that will help you stand out from the crown (and keep you extra warm on those chilly October nights!)
To wear your Marsala leather jacket, grab your trusty black skinnies made in the USA, like the Bullet Blues Chic Parisien Skinny Cigarette jean, and pair with a sassy statement tee. A pair of cutout booties with grommet details will an extra edgy element, while a cozy scarf adds a touch of cuteness. Grab your favorite fringe bag and your trendy leather jacket and you have a great outfit for an outdoor fall festival or a day at the pumpkin patch!
A rich, sultry color like Marsala can be made ultra-sexy when paired with flirty details and feminine prints, like pearls, feathers, florals, and chiffon. For your new go-to going out look this fall, pair a floaty chiffon American made top like Bullet Blues Jocelyne Chiffon top with a buttery Marsala leather skirt, then throw on a sweet floral print blazer. Pile on feminine accessories, like feather-trimmed heels, a pearl necklace, and a cute clutch. Finish the look with a deep Marsala lip color for an extra-sexy 90s touch.
