Colours to Wear With a Purple Dress
Magenta, mauve, periwinkle, violet, lavender, and amethyst, purple comes in these and many other shades. Much loved and hankered by many fashionistas, it is often steered away to the same extent since purple is not the easiest colour to coordinate. Following the basic rule of choosing the contrasting colours from the colour wheel, purple work with oranges, yellows, and greens. And though these combinations shouldn’t be omitted for other purple garments, for a dress that will be the core colour of your ensemble, those might be a bit too much. So, let’s see how to accessorise a purple dress with other colours not to look kitschy or gaudy.
To play it safe, go monochrome. In other words, pair purples with purples. Just choose different shades. The only tip to remember is to stick to the same colour temperature. It means you are free to choose lighter or deeper undertones from either a cool or a warm palette of purple. Mixing cool and warm shades looks a bit weird and is certainly not the sort of contrast to pick.
The next surefire way to style up-to-the-minute purple dress outfits is to opt for complementary colours from the neutral palette. For purple, it’s ecru, cream, grey, sage, taupe, black, and white. These colours will properly trim and highlight your purple gown and will work great both in accessories such as belts or purses and in shoes or outerwear. A cardigan, blazer, jacket, or a coat in one of those neutral shades thrown over your purple gown will set a perfect colour balance.
Those who are on the bolder side and seek some edgier touch to their purple dress can dare to bundle their frock with one of those brighter purple colour matches. Choose anything from a multicoloured necklace with yellow, orange, and lime green beads to a bright hat to a mustard yellow blazer or green shoes. To put the whole look together, maintain the chosen accents with some minor details in a matching colour, be it a clutch, tights, or simply a pair of earrings.
Two more colours to make best friends with purple are gold and silver metallics. They team into exceptionally regal and dignified combos great for formal events, friendly cocktails, romantic dates, and a whole choice of other evening affairs.
