Color Obsession: Violet

Lately, I’ve been gravitating towards purple. I love just about every purple from lavender to violet, but it’s the nearly-black hues that I salivate over. Something about that “black but not really” vibe makes me feel sneaky, which I like.

As you can see, violet is great at making you look a) mysterious, b) badass, c) feminine but not in a cloying way. Additionally, you should probably wear sunglasses when you wear it.

Fortunately, fall is coming, and we can watch the “NEWFLASH: Jewel tones are in for fall!” mayhem erupt. Along with it, though, will be the flood of affordable, cozy, and oh-so-amethyst inventory to hit the shelves.

There was a bit of it on the runways for Fall 2013 – jewel tones dominated, shocking. But the executions are pretty exciting!
