Summer & Winter Purple Occasionwear

Just as nature has its own corner of pretty blooms of lavender, iris, orchid and violets, we too can enjoy the display. A wardrobe can be filled with bright jewel tones of winter or take on a lighter show for spring. Whatever the season there’s a shade of purple to match any occasion. There’s feminine combinations such as pink with purple, or sophisticated partners of gold and taupe plus mixes of yellow, coral and white for a cheerful summertime look.

Colour Block Trend

For a mix of your favourite colours, this latest trend will suit fashion-forward ladies. The chic look will break up the one colour theme and give a fresh approach to formal wear. For an evening occasion try a purple colour block shift dress, matching jacket and sling-back wedges. The smartly tailored dress is an elegant choice for any event and the wave of colourblock dresses keeps it bang on trend.

Purple Floral Print Dresses

A purple multi print dress is a great choice for informal daytime events and garden parties. The floral print gives a softer appearance than the latest trend of colour blocking and makes accessorising easy. Picking out different shades from each individual piece can form the basis of many outfits. Pair with a plain fine knit bolero, crochet shrug or shimmer jacket in contrasting colours for maximum effect.
