Confused about how to wear a strong color like purple? This rich hue looks great on everyone, mixing the best qualities of red and blue to flatter most skin tones.
Here's how to wear it right:
- Pair with black or other dark neutral like charcoal. A purple blouse under a dark suit looks great for work.
- Punch up purple by wearing with eye-popping brights like grass green or lime. A purple sweater with a bright green scarf radiates personality.
- Complement purple tones with purple eyeshadow, just keep the shadow very sheer and light (too-dark purple eyeshadow sometimes gives you a black eye look).
- Play purple off of equally strong prints. A bright purple dress with zebra (black and white) print shoes is fun and funky.
