Plum. Eggplant. Amethyst. Periwinkle. No matter the shade, purple reigns this season.
Purple Pants: I’ve had these purple velvet trousers for years and have almost thrown them on the giveaway pile many times. Needless to say, I’m glad I hung onto them. This look features a mauve short-sleeved sweater tucked into the purple pants, a patterned scarf and silver flats.
My Purple Pick: My favorite purple item for fall is this retro-inspired peep toe. It features a textile suede upper, a shoelace tie for an oxford feel and a patent stiletto heel. (Payless.com $24.99).
