Not so long ago, it was believed that purple is only for creative people or for those who have mental problems. But now clothes in violet tones have firmly entered the wardrobes of women of different ages. Such clothes are preferred by romantic people who have a well-developed intuition. Unlike classic black dresses, purple looks mysterious, bold and playful. In such dresses, a woman looks elegant and seductive.

In a purple evening dress you will be irresistible. This noble color looks great on women of any age and in the presence of a deep dark shade visually makes the figure more slender.

Concerns about buying a dress in purple are usually associated with a lack of understanding about what to wear it with. Choosing the right outfit and accessories to it can be a dead end, if you do not know what purple dresses are, what other colors you can dilute purple, and also how to successfully complement the image.

Selection features

Choosing a purple dress, remember these nuances:

  • Do not fully dress in purple.
  • The brighter your skin and hair, the darker and richer the purple tone should be.
  • The darker the tone of your skin and hair, the brighter you can choose a shade of purple.
  • Purple has a slimming property.

In choosing your “own” violet shade, consider the color of your hair. If it is copper, chestnut or reddish, and your eyes are gray-green or greenish-brown, then the best choice among purple tones would be plum and shades approaching red (purple-red or purple-red).

Burning brown-eyed brunettes best go dark purple color, for example, with a hint of indigo or blueberry tone. Also, such girls are perfect saturated and bright purple tone.

For fair-haired girls with fair skin and gray eyes (as well as gray-blue and gray-green), we recommend a light gray-purple hue, as well as violet and lavender evening dress.

Color combinations

Successful combinations of purple tones can be called a combination with:

  1. Brown. Such a duet is very warm and attractive. Brown can be represented by dark tones (for example, chocolate), and lighter shades (for example, sand). Purple can be added to brown in any variation and proportion.
  2. White This combination looks fresh, unusual and spring-like. Among other neutral colors, successfully combined with tones of purple, also called gray, beige and black.
  3. Green. This combination is stylish, romantic and warm. Purple, choose bright, and let the green be rich (light green, turquoise, emerald) or muted (bottle, khaki, pistachio).
  4. Yellow A very bright and extraordinary combination that appeals to people seeking individuality. In this case, note that yellow is preferred in small quantities, for example, wear a bright purple dress with a yellow scarf or yellow brooch.

The combination of violet with neutral colors - black, gray, white and beige will be a win-win. But other "deep" colors will do. Try and experiment.

Dark shade

The dark shade of purple looks restrained and stern. In addition, the dark tones of purple emphasize spirituality.

Such rich shades as eggplant or plum, can be called royal.They combine perfectly with black, white, gray and classic blue.

You can also add golden, bright green, bright pink, emerald, coral, dark lemon, crimson and orange tones to rich purple.

You should not allow a combination of dark purple outfit with a print of a different color (except black and white). Well, if you add only one neutral or bright tone to such a violet version.
