Purple Reign

Cushnie et Ochs, Prabal Gurung, Nonoo

Throughout history rich variations of violet were worn by royals, giving it a noble, commanding quality.  This season's runways proved that purple reigns supreme as a multitude of designers embraced the bold hue, making it more accessible than ever before.  Pantone deemed Radiant Orchid it's color of the year, noting its massive influence on everything from red carpet fashion to jewelry and cosmetics.  Since purple can easily complement any complexion, including hair and eye color, it is extremely versatile.  Pair it with other rich tones, like navy or cherry to avoid looking washed out or create a high-contrast look with softer hues, like lilac and mint. However you want to express yourself this season, get inspired by spring's reigning purple looks.
