Every year, Pantone, the authority on color matching, chooses a color of the year, which is often reflected in fashion, beauty, design, and more. Last year, we saw Radiant Orchid everywhere from the catwalk to the sidewalk. For 2015, Pantone has chosen the rich, earthy Marsala as the color of the year! Why Marsala? According to Pantone, when considering its use across in fashion and beauty, Marsala is both sophisticated and glamorous; it's also flattering against many skin tones, making the warm, wine-red shade a versatile choice. This isn't exclusive to ready-to-wear alone. Marsala is the perfect shade for refreshing any and every lingerie wardrobe for this new year.

This Stella never needs to get her groove back, because it is always there! All the time. I am drooling over this gorgeous Stella McCartney bodysuit and its daring, deep plunge neckline. Mixing and matching of Japanese Leavers lace, sheer Swiss dot, and a silk/spandex blend creates an elegant, sophisticated look.

This everyday Bestform bra isn't just vibrant in color, but in texture too. This balconette style bra is composed of unique detailing including floral embroidery on the top of the cup, wide-set, textured straps, and dainty bow detailing in the center and by the straps. Full cup ladies can make any day a little sweeter with this number!

Plus-sized ladies can take advantage of this color trend as well. Hips and Curves features this flirty babydoll in the rich hue. Available through a 5X, this piece lives up to its name of sinfully sweet with its ruffled neckline and bum-skimming hem. Complete the look with the matching g-string or stockings.

Figleaves brand Midnight Grace provides another full cup option for this color trend. The non-padded, balconette style provides a feminine shape accented by the embroidery which follows the natural curve of the breast. Paired with mesh on the top of the cup and a cheeky keyhole on the gore, this is a true beauty.

Per usual, Elle Macpherson Intimates creates visually appealing pieces that are on trend. This cozy and chic cami is made of semi-sheer silk and scalloped, soft cups. Pleats create a feminine, blousy silhouette. The cami is complimented by cheeky French hot pants for an elegant look any night of the week.

Stella McCartney does it again as well with this lace bra. My favorite detailing is the satin strap with the lace overlay. The back of the bra reveals a complementary toned strap and a sheer, Swiss dot pattern for the band.

Another Elle Macpherson stunner, this bra incorporates two-tone lace, sophisticated scalloping, and some extra oomph from the plunge for a subtly sexy silhouette. The front of the bra isn’t having all of the fun either. Sweet little bows are a fun touch on the back.

    Thanks for commenting, Jinx. Personally, I do. I think it is about using the color as inspiration. As I mentioned, there is an exact color, but what I invluded here were in that same color family. Think about your skin tone and undertones. Like we might do with jewelry or makeup, we can consider what shades of the base color are more cool, neutral, or warm. I’m not a color expert, but I would suggest trying a few different options. Good luck!
