Style tip?  Purple is coming in all shapes, sizes, and hues this season.  Try, if you dare, a bright shiny purple, a la Phillip Lim’s dashing cocktail dress.  Or opt for a softer shade of purple, as at Luca Luca and Erin Fetherston.  Whatever the shade, purple looks positively polished on simple silhouettes.  Just let the color shine.

What do you think?  How would you wear purple?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    Hurrah! I’m a big fan of dusty purples, like this dress.

    I guess wear it the same way I wore purple in Fall 09 when it was the BIg Trend.

    I kid! Sort of. I do like seeing purples with warmer hues, like the bronze and greige combos above.

    with brown.
    or gray.
    or both.
    Depends on the purple – its warmth or coolness, its intensity, etc. I rock the warmer, reddish violet side of purple but the cool side works too if it not too saturated (i.e. a muted tone, either grayed or brownish but anywhere on the tint-tone-hue scale from palest to deepest).
    I am coveting bronze this year so that will influence what I pair with it.
