Pantone announced its color of the year and it's . . . weird. Named Marsala after the wine, it's a brownish/burgundyish hue that reminds us of old Aunt Sally's lipstick. Lots of people on Twitter can't stand it — haters gon' hate.
The 2015 Pantone color of the year is mauve. Dollar store makeup bins and great aunts everywhere are rejoicing. pic.twitter.com/FLoOP8ecN5

Pantone announces #Marsala as the "color of the year." Personally, I like it with chicken.

Pantone's Color of the Year is Marsala. What's the complementary color, Veal?

Seriously, how depressing does Pantone think next year's gonna be? Muddy red/brown, named after booze depressing. #pantonecoloroftheyear

the @pantone color of the year is described as "exuding confidence & stability while feeding the body, mind & soul." it's not a yoga class.
