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. Still, we recommend wearing a light purple dress like a lavender dress to your daily events, choosing 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, gold, or silver heels. But if you want to go big and bold, color-blocking your dress and shoes will 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.
