What To Wear With: Purple

August 21, 2008 by Bryn

Although my hands-down favorite color is black (isn't that technically all the colors?) I am trying to broaden my horizons and venture into brighter territory- purple being my safest baby step. With this royal hue popping up everywhere this season, it's imperative to wear it just right. Unlike the safer colors, like grey and black, purple can be tricky to pull off. So here's what we suggest you do.   

Remember, purple is a cool color, so the other components of your outfit should work to brighten the look. Toss a crisp white cropped blazer over a plum frock. The white will complement the darkness of the dress. Choose gold jewelry over silver, as this is the warmer of the two. A pendant necklace stays on trend and pops against the rich background. Choose a classic brown or tan bag – and leave the black or patent candy clutch at home. Finally, opt for a shoe that will allow your purple eye candy to take center stage. These python sandals may not seem like the first choice as wallflower footwear, but they are actually quite versatile and can be paired with a number of ensembles while still adding texture and personality to your look.
