Colours That You Can Wear With A Purple Suit

A purple suit is a great alternative to a black, navy or grey suit. Don’t be scared of adding pops of colour; purple can take it!

Purple is a great winter colour – warm and sumptuous. Because it is made up of red and blue you can add both of these colours to purple. Yellowy green looks lovely next to purple because yellow is purple’s complimentary colour (see here about complimentary colours).

How to wear it three ways

Sometimes one new dress is enough. Really? Yes. You just need to pick the right dress.
If it is a great length on you, a great colour and not too fussy with details you can easily dress it in different ways.
Adding neutral accessories is an easy way of accessorising bright colours and changing it into a variety of different looks.

A shift dress style is a great tool to have in your box. You could:

1. Belt it in to create waist definition
2. Leave it loose and relaxed (great for BBQs)
3. One large accessory can make a statement – try a necklace, hat or belt
4. Shoes can often set the tone of a look – flat sandals for summer festival fun or sharp toed heels for days in the office
5. Add a cardigan or jacket – take the air conditioning chill off but don’t forget this contributes to the style you are creating

Three Ways To Wear It

Brown dress with coloured accessories

Brown is another great colour base to work with that will allow you to add coloured accessories and make many outfits from one piece.

Once you have found a selection of great colours for your skin tone – you can start to mix up your wardrobe and play with adding these colours in the accessories.

This is an easy way into adding colour into your wardrobe (for those people who are a little bit scared of just adding large pieces of colour in the form of a coloured dress or suit!).

Using a green base

Using a green base
This shows two sides of using green as a base colour for an outfit. Depending on the green that works with your skin tone and hair colour you can go warmer or colder, lighter or darker, brighter or muted with the coloured accessories!

Perhaps you’ve never considered how many different greens there are in the world?
You can begin to understand why it might be difficult to find the right green for yourself when there are so many out there.
Choose the right green for you and the right outfit for your working environment and you will have a winning professional outfit.
