Purple in its many shades is one of the hottest colors for this season, from lilac and lavender to violet and plum. It’s almost impossible not to be fashionable this fall with so many shade variations. Wearing the color plum purple is great way to step out of the fashion norm because of the regal appearance of the hue. In the Chinese culture purple actually represents wealth and prosperity. The trick to wearing plum without looking like an over-sized fruit is in the manner with which you combine the color with the accessories. We all love eye popping colors such as red, orange and pink but mixing those shades with plum are a recipe for disaster. It should be teamed with light neutral colors like beige, cream or even off white. Still not completely sure plum purple is the right choice for you? Try flirting with the color by adding a hint of plum to your attire such as plum earrings and a scarf. Plum is perfectly ripe for Fall.
