Periwinkle, violet … whatever your definition of the purple hue seen in these fabulous draped dresses, they definitely stand out, whether you’re willowy like Miranda Cosgrove or va-voom curvy like Salma Hayek or Kim Kardashian. Fashion designers are in love with purple this season!
These cooler blue purples are showing up in dresses that are draped and cinched at the waist, and the color and shape combo has a real 80s power-dress look. You’ll notice that these ladies have all paired their bright frocks with nude color shoes. It’s one of the top fashion trends this season: taming look-at-me features with nude tones.
It’s a good idea to keep your fashion accessories from trying to hog the spotlight when you’re wearing purple. If you go overboard, you might be mistaken for one of those Red Hat Society ladies. But if you keep the accessories in the background, your purple dress will be the perfect summer outfit.
