How to Wear Purple for Racing Fashions, from THE HATISTA www.dress-2-impress.com #racingfashion #wearpurple #outfitinspiration #outfitideas #purpleoutfits #fashionista

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 5 years. This year Pantone have declared 2018’s colour of the year is Ultra Violet. Galactic, Spiritual, Royal and Optimistic, it's a colour that can be worn across all seasons, velvets and satins for winter, and encorporated in your florals for Summer, so expect to be seeing it everywhere from January. Many are still intimidated by purple though and find if difficult to wear. If you're wondering what to wear with this purple, confidence and the correct colour combining is key.

You can can pick the intensity, and quantity that your choose to add. 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:

Regal Purple

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...

Purple and Fuschia - As Nature Intended

If you want advice on what colours compliment each other best, then the best person to ask is Mother Nature. She always gives an honest answer and never get's in wrong.

Fuschia's of the most common varieties (Tom Thumb etc) are excatly this colour combo of Fuschia and Ultra Violet Purple, and no one can argue they are not perfect for each other.

This flattering hue is soft enough to work on any complexion but vivid enough to brighten features.

Violet works perfectly with neutrals, so it is ideal with your Nude Shoes or handbags.

Find it in your Florals

Graphic Floral Print dresses are always on trend. Floral dresses are the essence of feminine charm. Pantones Ultra Violet is a colour that you will find in 100’s of Floral prints. If you aren’t ready to wear this vibrant tone on it’s own, then a floral print is perfect. You can then select accessories in the Ultra Violet colour to wear with the outfit.

Remember: If choosing florals or other highly graphic prints, then select accessories in single colour. Don’t try wearing a busy, multi-coloured statement hat, and a graphic print. A busy hat + a busy dress looks messy and complicated. If you must wear the biggest, multi-coloured, statement hat for Royal Ascot or Kentucky Derby, then do that with a simple monotone dress, not florals.

Accessorize with Purple Pop

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. See the Purple boots add energy to the Tan pleated skirt is the below outfit example.

For Spring / Summer weddings or a day at the races, wear with a harmonising colour - like the Yellow in the example below. The Purple pops out, yet it harmonizes well with the outfit.
