How To Wear Acai Purple

How To Wear Acai Purple

Pantone has called out acai purple to be one of the trend colors for fall 2013 (“Acai” is pronounced “Aah-Sai-EEE”, by the way).

It is a rich, deep hue of purple, exuding a royal flair as well as a sense of mystery. This color makes a statement and evokes the connection to richness and glamour. No wonder designers like GucciAlberta Ferretti and Elie Saab have incorporated it in their collections!

In terms of styling, acai purple lends itself beautifully to jewel-toned colors like emerald, turquoise and sapphire or other berry colours like raspberry, blueberry and strawberry. It can also be paired with neutrals like black, beige or white and can be accentuated with either silver or gold.

This color will complement ladies best, who have cool and deep colorings in their skin, eyes and hair. If you have cool colorings, but are more on the lighter side, you can still wear acai purple. Just make sure to combine with pieces in cool, light and muted colors to tone down the heavy richness.

Watch out, however, if you are warm skinned. Then, a color like acai purple can take away the natural vibrance in your face and make you look sick. Try to wear it further away from your face, on your lower body or as accents only. Also stick to warm tones in your accessoires and jewellry. As a matter of contrast, this shade of purple can look very rich and royal if combined with gold.

Here are 3 Ways To Wear An Acai Purple Dress. Due to a special request, I keep it to outfits suited for a wedding – just the right occasion for an elegant and glamorous shade like acai purple!

From The Runway: Trend Colour Acai Purple

Hi everyone!

I am extremely excited to welcome you to a brand new theme of 3 Ways To Wear: Runway Inspirations.

This section is – you might have guessed it – all about upcoming trends straight from the runways of this world. I know, I know. Trends are a tricky thing in fashion. Personally, I am always split in between „Oh I LOVE fashion, give me more!“ and „But oh, I HATE to be a fashion victim!“. It’s like an devil whispering on the left, and an angel on the right (maybe you know that feeling….).

In weak moments, I used to give in to the devil’s voice and buy trendy things on a whim. Most oft these items can still be identified in my wardrobe very easily: They lie somewhere in the back. And still have the original tags on them. I hate you little fashion devil.

Undoubtedly, fashion trends are fun, but they are not for everyone (your little fashion devil knows that, too!).

Each trend can look super flattering, or super disastrous on an individual person. You have to be knowledgable about them. And assuming you find something trendy that is just perfect for you, wouldn’t it be great to wear it in more than just one style?

Lucky you! This is exactly why I created this. So let’s get started, ladies… here is my advice on How To Wear Acai Purple, a trend colour for this autmn / winter season!
