Tips for wearing purple dress

By Kavitha Ram

Confused about how to wear a tough color like purple? This rich tone looks great on everyone, mixing the best qualities of red and blue to flatter most skin tones.

Here are the few tips that show, how to wear it right:

- Pair with black or other dark neutral color like charcoal. A purple blouse under a dark suit looks great for work.

- Strike up purple by wearing with eye-popping bright like grass green or lime. A purple sweater with a dazzling green scarf radiates personality.

- Balance purple tones with purple eye shadow, just keep the shadow very sheer and light (too-dark purple eye shadow sometimes gives you a black eye look).

- Play purple off of similarly strong prints. A bright purple dress with zebra (black and white) print shoes is fun and funky.
