Fashion Trends. ‘Purple Reigns!’

November 2, 2009 • Fashion


As sad we all are to see the summer palette of breezy pastels and punchy neons leave us for another year, it's almost just as thrilling to usher in the fall-friendly spectrum of jewel tones. And this year, one hue seems to stand a cut above the rest—purple! The color once associated with the royalty, purple has already nabbed its status as the must have nail color for fall. Now apparel and accessories have caught on as purples have begun showing up in coveted collections in all of it's regal splendor. Choose any shade to fit your fancy—a tuxedo-themed top in vibrant grape, a luxe berry-colored scarf, or a gorgeous leather skirt in a deeply rich plum. Sweeten up any autumn ensemble with a violet satin bag or show stopping orchid and fuschia heels. Indulge freely in the possibility of purple, both on its own or paired with neutrals for a vibrant jolt of color. As you can see, there are more than enough choices to outfit anyone fit for a queen.
