Fall Fashion Trend: Purple


Model Wearing PurpleThe second biggest color trend for Fall 2007 (after the grey trend, of course) is purple. Jewel tones in general are huge this season, but purple is definitely the most popular.

Purple is one of my favorite colors ever and I’m so excited to see it as a trend this fall. I’m also excited because purple looks fabulous when paired with grey, black, white, or even brown. It’s a totally versatile color that really works in most outfits.

The hottest shades of purple for you to wear this season are the darkest. Some people can also get away with brights, but I personally think the more muted shades are better for fall.

    I adore purple this season but I really think it needs to be fairly dark to work. A dark amethyst would totally work with gray or black or maybe even brown but if you pair it with something lighter like a cream or taupe it looks way to gaudy.

    Mandarine – I agree with you about the dark purples. I like purple with some lighter colors though. For example, a medium to light grey. I wouldn’t put it with cream or any warmer-toned light colors though. I also think white can work with purple. It will be interesting to see the kinds of looks people will be putting together this fall!

    Finally purple. I am so tired of brown, grey and black. Purple looks great on so many people.
