Fall Fashion 2012: Pretty in Purple!

19 Aug

I’ve never been a purple girl, pink has always had my heart, but this year’s fall fashion designs have changed all that and kicked my love for pink aside (just for a while). I love, love, LOVE whats to come. Fall fashion previews are all over every major fashion magazine and blog, and so far not one designer has disappointed! From the dresses to the boots, to the clutches and even the makeup- this years fall fashion lines are stunning.

My favorite fall color this year? Amethyst! It’s royal, it’s vibrant, it’s fun, it’s chic- I could go on and on. This purple and similar shades are great as a pop color and as a monochrome outfit. It’s just plain: YES!

Try it as a pop color on your nails with this shade from Yves Saint Laurent, or incorporate it into your work wardrobe with a vibrant cardigan like this one from White House Black Market:

If you’re going out for an evening, try pairing that LBD with a chic purple envelope clutch, it screams royalty without making your look too severe. Wearing white? Try matching the clutch with a few purple accessories to add a fun element to your look.

Bold enough to try a purple lip? Channel this “Vamp” look like Chanel Iman, Go full force with a true purple hue or try a softer look with a shade closer to lilac.
