Grape Expectations


Don't you just love this dress? It is so dramatic and beautiful and... purple. Purple is such a pretty color. It can be soft or bold, depending on what shade you choose to use. Below I have created some beautiful purple looks.

Look One
Grape Expectations

I think this is my favorite look that I have created for this post. I love how soft and feminine it is. The dress is absolutely stunning. I paired this with simple pearl and silver jewelry and black heels, because the centerpiece of this look is the dress.

Look Three

This is my ultra casual purple look. I would wear something like this on a long shopping trip or out to have fun with friends. I adore the cardigan, it creates such a beautiful shape, and the cat ring.

Look Four
Grape Expectations4

My favorite thing about this look is the cardigan. It is just so cute and simple. I play up the little bit of orange on the cardigan by adding orange accessories. I could see myself wearing this out with friends. Although I believe I would add some tights or socks to help fight the cold.

Purple is a color that looks good when paired with so many other colors. I believe it looks great with denim, black, gray, yellow, pink, and orange, which is my favorite pairing. What colors do you pair purple with?
