Purple, a color regularly associated with royalty and opulence, can be paired well with a wide range of other hues. When wearing bold purple tones, let your purple garment stand out by wearing it with quieter colors that complement without competing.
Did you know that purple is a universal color? Meaning, everyone can wear purple. Some look better in this color, but everyone can wear it. I have some theories as to why this is true. Maybe because this color is an even combination of red (warm) and blue (cool).
Choose the right shade of purple to match the season. A darker, cooler purple (like Aubergine) works well for fall and winter, while a lighter or brighter purple (like Orchid or Lavender) is great for the warmer months.
Wear it in moderation. Purple is such a strong statement color that wearing too much at once can be a fashion disaster.
Mix it up. Grey and blacks look fantastic with purple. For a color blocked look, try mixing it with emerald or even animal print.
Mix two very different shades of purple. Unless you choose two shades of similar warmth, it's easy to cross the line from glam to garish.
