Passionate About Purple
Purple is a strong color, so use it as an accent in your wardrobe. Wear a skinny belt or pumps, suggests style expert Niria Portella. Or try a purple platform ankle boot, suede bag or pashmina shawl. Purple works well with gray, navy, brown and olive green.
Radiant in Red
This bold color looks great on nearly everyone. Use it for main pieces, like dresses and skirts, and accessories, like suede boots and opaque tights, Portella says. You can wear red alone or combine several shades. And don’t be afraid to mix it up: Red pairs well with eggplant, steel gray, camel and navy, says FocusOnStyle.com founder Sharon Haver. If classic red is a bit too bright for your taste, tone things down by wearing a Bordeaux shade.
