You Said: Yes to Purple

April 6th, 2009


secret-wash-button-down-gingham_040509We asked: Would you wear Purple?

You said:  Yes to Purple (overwhelmingly so!), with a 90% to 10% vote.

Style tip? One of our favorite color combinations is a rich royal purple paired with a light grey.  It’s absolutely beautiful, and it works as well for guys as it does for women.  If you want to take it one step further, try pattern with purple.  A simple stripe or gingham (as pictured) really adds an extra zing.

Next question: White denim is perfectly Springlike - but difficult to wear, both for figure flattery and for keeping it clean!  But what do you think?  Would you wear White Denim?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I LOVE purple on men. Especially on dark haired men. If only I could get my husband to sport it. Sigh.

    I think purple is a fall color, but it could bring spring like qualities if it was light expressed with yellow. But that’s a normal pattern

    Purple and yellow do really “pop” when put together, as they’re opposites on the color wheel. But with this particular color combination, be careful so as to not make the outfit look like Easter incarnate :)

    Purple is absolutely wonderful on men. What I love is that it’s such a rich color – and it’s somewhat unexpected. It’s not your average blue!
