AKA: Maroon…. or the new buzz word according to InStyle Magazine (and our friends at www.TheBlondeandThe Brunette.com)….. Marsala. This brownish version of the color red is showing up everywhere in fashion and cosmetics in 2015. Our ode to maroon/burgundy/marsala is our Dolce Gabbana velvet dress…. with a sweetheart neckline, gathered waist and dramatic side slit…. finished off with a pair of Christian Louboutin pointed toe, satin pumps. Saying welcome to the color spectrum… and hello to fashion!!
Burgundy: a dark red color associated with the Burgundy wine of the same name, which in turn is named after the Burgundy region of France which in turn is named after the ancient Burgundians, a Germanic tribe. The color burgundy is similar to other shades of dark red such as maroon, cordovan, and oxblood, but differs from each of these in subtle ways.
