Wine stained lips, a good bottle of Bordeaux, raspberries…these are a few things that remind me of Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala. When the color of the year is announced, trends in beauty, home and fashion immediately pop up, but what about fitness apparel? I decided to investigate the hottest workout gear and accessories in this yummy berry shade to help you take this color trend straight to the gym! From headphones to yoga mats to leggings and more, here’s a round up of some of the best Marsala-colored products on the market.
iHome’s Noise Isolating Earphones: Music is a MUST during any workout and these iHome Earphones are a great way to add just a hint of the color of the year to your gym attire.
