How to Wear: Purple

With Radiant Orchid being named the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year, shades of purple will be popping up everywhere! (Lucky me, it’s my favorite color!) Maybe you’re not a fan of Radiant Orchid, but there are many other shades of purple to choose from!  Find the one that looks great on your skin tone. (Hint: Periwinkle is often considered a flattering shade on every skin tone, so that might be a good place to start!) If the shade you like does nothing but wash you out, try to incorporate it into your accessories!

Today I have a few ways to incorporate purple into your wardrobe, whether you like it a little, or a lot. (And if you hate all things purple, just ignore today’s post!) As always, click the photos for specific item information!
This is a great transition outfit as we (hopefully) move into the warmer months soon. A little on the casual side with the sweater, don’t be afraid to add some sparkles to your jewelry. A gorgeous shoe really takes it up a notch. To ensure the shoes are the centerpiece, I’ve kept the rest of the outfit pretty neutral but you could definitely do a printed top as well.

If you’re a jeans and t-shirt kind of a girl, consider a purple accessory to make your outfit really pop. I love this purple bag!

Wedding shower? Fancy brunch? Nothing says Spring like florals and this pretty periwinkle really sets off the skirt.

I need this dress in my closet. Now. This would be a gorgeous Easter dress, or maybe worn to a spring wedding!
