Inside: 53 purple outfit ideas that will have you investing in all the color you can find!
Color is everything right now, and while we’ve been used to the neutrals and the all black chic outfits that were all the rage the last few years, color is now the move and it couldn’t be more fun to get into!
Neutrals are safe, but color brings life to everything. Even if you want to stay within the comfort of the black, brown, tan, and cream color palettes, adding a bag or shoes or sweater with a pop of color is a great way to participate in the trend without committing too much.
We are in a very maximalist era currently, where more is more and we mean it in a good way. The Y2K resurgence is on the downward slope, but it left behind its love of color and fun styles! And I’ll take it.
Check out these purple outfits and see if they influence you to join the color train!
Purple is a beautiful color, and can range from a deep tone to a lilac shade that blends well with neutrals. If you’re looking to start edging towards colored style, start with purple. It’s a pretty natural color without being neutral, and it’s fun and girly without the boldness of pink!
There’s a purple outfit for every occasion, so if one of these catches your eye and is the perfect fit for an event you’re going to, try it out and see if the world of color is for you!
