What to Wear in Chicago this Week
Chicagoings once published an article summing up Pantone’s color of the year, how it’s chosen, and why we all should care. The gist is that everyone is being bamboozled into color craving by a team of international marketing experts. The chosen hue gradually bleeds into every aspect of our lives from our clothes, to home appliances, to even the auto industry. In hindsight, this can be a bad thing (remember the pinks of 2011?) or an overkill of effort and time (2006 was basically grey). This year, it’s a great thing – at least in my opinion.
That’s because Pantone’s color of 2015 is marsala. Which is oxblood. Which is burgundy. (The trick is to never call colors by their actual names.) And everyone looks great in burgundy!
As of now, my collection of burgundy pieces totals 1.
