If we do say so ourselves, we had some major style envy from all of the usual suspects including Kate Bosworth, Alessandra Ambrosio and Kendall Jenner, although they probably saw last weekend as the fashion warm up! This week the trend stakes will be raised even higher and what better way to be ahead than to showcase the Pantone 'Colour of the Year' Marsala in any way possible.
This rich colour, which can be classed as a dark red/burgundy shade, is the perfect way to set off a tan and contrast with the classic boho creams and browns that are often the go-to uniform of Coachella.
If like us you want to stay away from darker clothing now Summer is on the way the best way to display your trend knowledge of this tone is to incorporate it into your beauty look, whether it's a dark stain on your lips or a pop on your nails.
Personally, we think Chanel's Le Vernis in 639 Exception is perfection and flawless way to incorporate this craze into your Coachella wardrobe.

In honour of Americas Independence Day we have decided to put together a bright and bold Friday Fix to celebrate this years 4th July!
No Independence Day celebration look would be complete without a bright red lip and of course the perfect polished mani to match- so here at Odabash HQ we recommend a little glamour with Chanel's beauty collection.
Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick is the perfect lipstick for all occasions. The elevating matte lipstick is not only non-drying but provides an intense long-wearing colour with a velvet matte finish and comes in a choice of twelve gorgeous shades. We personally love shade 43- La Favorite for the perfect 4th July party look!
