The last few years we have seen many Purple hues in the collections of all the top designers, and a purple hue has featured in nearly all the Pantone Top Colour reports for the past few seasons, yet many are still intimidated by purple and find if difficult to wear. If you're wondering what to wear with purple, confidence and the correct colour combining is key.
There are many different shades of purple, so you can pick the intensity, hue, and of course quantity. Mix it correctly and you will find purple isn't so intimidating after all.
Here are my style tips on how to Wear Purple hues:
Purple is the colour most often associated with royalty, magic, mystery and piety.
A rich jewel deep purple flatters everyone from dark skin tones to fairer skin. Pretty much all Jewel Tones work with each other, so deep Jewel Purples work perfect with Navy, Silver, Gold, Emerald, Sapphire...Regal Purples are amoung the most popular colours you can wear for ultimate sophistication, summer or winter.
This flattering hue is soft enough to work on any complexion but vivid enough to brighten features.
Violet works perfectly with dark neutrals, so it is ideal with black, gray or navy.
The Coast Floral Jacquard Whistan Dress with beautiful floral embroidery, has been a popular dress this season, and one I’ve had many customers ask me to arrange headwear for. For each of them I have paired with a Silver Hat and accessories, adding contrast back into the outfit, and keeping the yellow knocked back instead of “in your Face”

Purple accessories liven up any outfit. If you’re not into purple clothes, make a statement, adding purple accessories to your neutral outfits for noticeable flair.
For Spring / Summer Racing Fashion wear with a harmonising colour - like the Fuchsia in the example below. The yellow can stand out, yet it harmonizes well with the outfit.
