How and What to Wear with Purple
While piling on accessories and other clothing items, make sure that you don't crowd the main color―purple. It has to be the winner of your ensemble, and also a piece that brings it all together. But don't be afraid to experiment with some bold accessories to liven up an outfit. Keeping these points in mind, let's check out some of our ideas below.
It's a Summer Thing
It's your very own LPD―Little Purple Dress. This vivacious LPD should be your must-have piece this season. It has a personality like no other. Wear accessories in dark brown and softer shades of purple to outshine anyone who crosses your path. Since the dress is lacking embellishments, you can bring in some fun with shoes and jewelry. But be careful as to not overcomplicate your outfit as it's supposed to stay as chilled out as possible.
Let's Talk Layers
Want to show your cozy, yet glam side? What better way than a stylish purple jacket to complete the outfit. And the graceful addition of white here is simply divine. This outfit is a wonderful choice when you have to head outta the door in a hurry. With limited yet vital pieces to put on, the purple hues just jump out and grab your attention.
Modern But Girly
Wear this sexy number, and be ready for some serious attention coming your way; all good, of course. If you're a risk taker and love the idea of mixing colors, then this, my dear, is the outfit for you. The bold and beautiful skirt paired with the cool and chic blouse make an excellent combo.

Be a "Girly" Tomboy

So, get your cute shorts out, and add a cute top to make a minute blend of girly-tomboy look. You can let the accessories be, if you're going for a relaxed appeal. But, the right accessories can really make a difference. Choose the accessories in the same shade; it keeps the final look refined.
