Tips on Passion for Wearing Purple

* Pair with black or other dark neutral like charcoal. A purple blouse under a dark suit looks great for work.
* Punch up purple by wearing with eye-popping brights like grass green or lime. A purple sweater with a bright green scarf radiates personality.
* Complement purple tones with purple eyeshadow, just keep the shadow very sheer and light (to-dark purple eyeshadow sometimes gives you a black eye look).
* Play purple off of equally strong prints. A bright purple dress with zebra (black and white) print shoes is fun and funky.

Stylist Fall Fashion Reminders

1. Choose darker colors as the basis of your wardrobe: navy, black, charcoal gray.
2. Use undergarment foundations: from all-in-one shapers to control top pantyhose.
3. Focus on playing up your best features, for example showing off shapely legs with a knee-length skirt.
4. Choose fabrics that don't cling, avoiding stiff or bulky textures.
5. Use accessories to draw attention to your face: scarves, earrings, etc.
6. Avoid anything too tight or clingy.
7. Make sure you scale your accessories to your size -- from your handbag to your earrings.
8. Choose clean-lined clothing without big embellishment or buttons.

Designers Say That More Is More, But It's Easier Said Than Done.

Here's how to add a bit of glitz without overdosing on the trend.

1. Start by incorporating small embellished items, such as a handbag into your wardrobe.
2. Make sure the embellishment is scaled to your figure.
3. Embellished jewelry looks best with streamlined, simple clothing.
4. In general, embellishment such as sequins, embroidery, trims and studs look classier on basic colors like black or white.
5. Make sure embellishment is used on or near a body part you want to call attention to: it draws the eye to it.
6. For maximum impact, wear just one embellished item at a time.


1. Like most things in fashion, this is a fad. If you hate it, skip it.
2. Embellished items look dressier than plain ones, so save them for special occasions.
3. Embellishment makes items more difficult to care for -- beaded fringe fall off, embroidery gets pulls, etc. -- so account for high maintenance.
