Editors are passionate about the color purple this season! Everything imaginable has been designed in this royal color. Not my personal favorite color, but I like to stay on trend, and will most likely look for an accessory or two in this season’s shade. Here’s a collection of some of the best fashion and accessories in purple today.
Kara Ross’s Python Cuff is a stunning statement in purple. Love the contrast of the soft and plush leather with the gleaming hard edges of rhodium. Amethyst stones sparkle on each side of the silver hinge. This bracelet is a great way to rock the royal color…...purple! $467 at Vivre.com
Sequins can be tricky and sometimes tacky. No one does the shiny pallets better than Donna Karan! Here she has taken the classic tank, made it out of silk and cashmere, then embellished it with tones of purple light-reflecting sequins. I own one of her sequin sweaters and it is heaven! Tissue thin and beautifully done. The tank is $695 at Nordstrom.com
Purple Patent! Rebecca Minkoff’s Cheri Tote certainly would add just the right pop of color to a Fall or Winter coat. Big enough for a laptop, but not overly large, the Cheri tote can get you to work and back with style! $605 at RebeccaMinkoff.com
I am not a big print person but prints are huge this season…despite what I think. Blumarine’s Animal Print Silk Chiffon Tunic is an exceptional print, in my view. The combination of stunning shades of lavender and grey create an unique animal print. The neckline is great with the metallic tie, and the cut out detail on the shoulder adds interest, while breaking up the pattern. The silk chiffon adds the feminine touch that makes this blouse so beautiful. $820 at Nordstrom.com
Carolina Herrera’s Lame Degrade Dress is lovely in a creative combination of silver lame and a dark purple. The sweetheart neckline is very flattering to most. I just think this dress is very beautiful for so many events. $ 2990.00 at NeimanMarcus.com
I have always loved fringe….on anything! It is big this season. Leigh and Luca’s feather Scarf in Purple has many good things going for it…..the color purple, the feather motif, the fringe, and the luxe fabrication of silk and cotton. A wonderful accessory! $165 at Intermixonline.com
This dress has had a celebrity cult following! Black Halo’s Purple Keyhole Ruffle Sleeve Sheath is both body conscious and glamorous! Details abound and all done with the sophistication of the color purple. $345 at chickdowntown.com
Straight off the runway! Anna Sui’s Silk Printed Mini Dress is a beautiful example of the winter floral and neo-folk looks that has risen to the top this season. I especially love the metallic accents at the waist. If you want it……get it fast…sizes are selling out! $570 at net-a-porter.com.
I say…..if you are going to be comfy in flats…..at least look fanciful! Miu Miu’s Jeweled Ballerinas are both fun and fancy with the be-jeweled toe. $659 at Saks.com
This is the year of the tight! Cold weather is coming and you will be warm and cozy in Prada’s Lana Coste Tights. They are made of soft rib wool and the color violet is yummy! They are $155 so I hope they are run proof! Saks.com
Sometimes just a touch of color can do so much for you outfit. When that touch happens to be jewels…..things really start to pop! Devi Kroell’s Wood Box Clutch With Crystal detail is over the top gorgeous and expensive! Think of it this way…..if you carry this statement piece you won’t need to buy another accessory! $1692.43 at BrownsFashion.com
