The word purple is associated with excellence and royalty. Like most colored dresses you can wear purple prom dresses to work and to your after work elegant event. The range of purple shades can be worn year round but we recommend wearing a light purple dress like a lavender dress to your daily events and choose light purple bridesmaid dresses from our bridesmaid sections and a darker purple dress like a plum dress to your evening events. If you’re wondering how to accessorize your outfit, you can play it safe and match purple with nude heels, gold heels or silver heels. But if you are looking to go big and bold, color blocking your dress and shoes will definitely help you make a statement at your next function. Lastly, like blue, you will never go wrong with wearing silver shoes or gold shoes to complete your lilac dress.
