Pantone announced Thursday its 2015 Color of the Year is…Marsala. The reddish-brown earthy hue is a nod to ’90s grunge and departure from the brights of the past years, but seems to be infinitely more wearable. And that also means lots of wine (as in the drink, not the chicken dish), which we can totally get on board with.

Because any reddish hue is practically synonymous with the holiday season (work parties, ugly sweater parties, cookie baking, etc), we’ve picked nine easy accessories that pair well with any sort of bubbly concoction. Glass of (marsala) wine is definitely recommended.

Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
