Purple has always been a strange color to me. It’s a hard color to put on an outfit. However, I recently found out that it flatters any skin tone, especially brown skin just like mine. Despite being a color associated with royalty, it also looks romantic especially as it combines stability and energy. Although this was a challenge, it was a fun color to style.
With that said, let me style the color purple in five different fashion aesthetics:
This aesthetic requires long, loose-fitting, flowy dresses, and skirts. Aside from that, you can also incorporate puffy sleeves and handcrafted accessories. A lavender puffed sleeve knee-length dress would be perfect for this aesthetic. Complete the outfit with a pair of white Mary Jane heels and a white leather bag. Then, accessorize with a silver necklace, charm bracelet, hoop earrings, and a watch.
Grunge is particularly famous due to its wholly androgynous outfits. It invokes a sort of edge to their personality. Grabbing a purple tartan cropped top would be the best for this aesthetic. Of course, add a little bit of androgynous touch with a pair of loose black denim jeans, a similarly-colored oversized denim jacket, and platform combat boots. Then, accessorize with silver rings, studs, a watch, and a necklace.
Recently, this aesthetic appeals to me more due to its comfort and individuality. So, grab a purple long-sleeved turtleneck, black cargo pants, a black cargo vest, and a pair of purple Nike dunks. Complete everything with a cargo bag and silver accessories.
This aesthetic, on the other hand, is the one that made me love dressing up. Sweaters are a must for this aesthetic. So, wear a light purple sweater vest over a white mock neck long-sleeved top, a similarly-colored tennis skirt, and platform Mary Janes. Then, complete the entire outfit with silver accessories.
Baddies deserve to look elegant in green, too. Make sure to glam yourself up with a rocking outfit to match. A black long-sleeved corset top, a purple mini skirt, and a pair of platform knee-length boots would be perfect for this aesthetic. Then, accessorize with a pair of sunnies, gold hooped earrings, a watch, a layered necklace, and a mini leather bag.
So, what do you think about the color purple? Let me know if you like the outfits in five different fashion aesthetics.
