Purple as a fashion color can no longer be denied. Read in this blog why you should go for the colour purple in your look and how you combine this beautiful colour!

A bit of history around the colour purple

Purple is originally a colour that was considered very exclusive. This is because the colour was very hard to win from nature. The colour could only be obtained from sea snails and this is why it was so extremely expensive that only emperors or noblemen could wear this specific colour. Fortunately, this is colour is nowadays available to everyone who loves it! 

Meaning of purple
Purple stands for magical, luxury, mysterious, feminine, creative and romantic. With (a touch of) purple in your outfit, you have an unusual look and shows that you have the courage.

Shades of purple
Popularly, lilac, lavender, eggplant and violet are soon called "purple." There is, however, such a difference in these colours and shades.

What do you think of the colour purple? Does it make your heart beat faster? Or are you afraid that purple might not be 'your colour'? In that case, do not immediately pull that ultra violet coloured dress from the clothes rack, but experiment with purple accessories. Carefully start complimenting your outfit with purple jewelry, shoes, make-up, scarf, or bag. 

The nice thing about the colour lilac, is that this colour fits almost all skin tones. That is different with colours such as red, yellow or orange. You can easily mix lilac with mint green and pastel pink. In the image below, a lilac suit is combined with BULAGGI's crossbody bag Angel.
