Getting bored of all the greys, beiges, and neutrals in your wardrobe? Want to add some interesting yet smart options to your daily wear? Purple may be a color worth considering.
Now the first image that may come to your mind when considering purple might be Barney the Dinosaur or Prince, but many people are choosing to adopt the unconventional purple because it makes an elegant and strong fashion statement if done correctly.
The trick, however, is in the manner you choose the other accessories and how you combine your purple with other colors depending on the shade of purple you decide to wear. Other bright colors are a big no-no with purple. Pinks, oranges and red are colors which you should not even give a single glance to while trying to incorporate purple into your ensemble.
If you are in the mood to wear a bright shade of purple, then you should consider dark accessories or a black coat to go along. A black skirt / trouser with a light purple top will make you look like royalty.
Dark purple, on the other hand, should be teamed with light neutral colors like beige, cream and off-white. If you don’t want to be ousted by your friends and colleagues in a social gathering, couple purple only with blacks, brown, cream, beige, white or on the outside a tan color.
If you are not confident about being able to decide the right color mix and are not positive that you can carry off a purple dress but still want to flirt with the color, you could try adding a hint of purple to your attire by using purple accessories. These could be in the form of buttons, earrings, scarves or even – nail polish!

But this piece of advice does not mean that you venture out and wear purple socks or shoes to match your purple shirt. It will smack of being cheap and flashy. Avoid purple shoes and any kind of purple dresses which are the same color from top to bottom. Too much of purple makes you look exactly the opposite of what you want to appear as. Purple should be used selectively with a certain angle to give a hint of nattiness without seeming to be flashy.
The color purple is beautiful and men and women alike should use it. But still, judicious use of the color is essential to get the desires result.
