Fall 2009 - The Color Purple
The color Purple (and I'm not talking the movie!). It's always been one of my favorite colors. When I was a little girl, my sister and I would always get the same clothing, the same ribbons and bows and the same type of doll for Christmas from our relatives. The only difference would be in the color. I always got purple and Jane always got pink. So as you can imagine... I've loved purple for a very long time.
After having the opportunity to be at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC all last week and reporting on some of the Spring 2010's hot trends... I received a bunch of emails asking about this season. Believe me, I get it... one thing about mothers, we constantly need to stay and be in the present. Spring 2010 is something not quite on our horizon yet, especially when it comes to latest "hot" fashion color (which, by the way, seems like it will be RED). So let's talk NOW. Fall 2009. What is one color that is definitely being marked as a trend?
PURPLE. PURPLE. PURPLE. In all of its glorious different shades, hues and tints.
Why purple? Truth be told, I don't know the "exact" answer for you. Each season there is definitely that one color that peeks out over the rest, and this season it is purple. There are so many variations of purple and such different styles and designs in stores and boutiques... it's incredible to see the popularity and love of this color. Go to any of your favorite shopping destinations right now and there will be shades of purple!
What I love most about purple is that it truly is one of those colors that still looks remarkable in different forms. Whether you're wearing a lilac, grape, violet... everything works. It doesn't lose its beauty one bit. If anything, it is simply enhanced. I also love how purple has translated so well into accessories and makeup, something I have really tried to incorporate into my Fall wardrobe and makeup bag!
Bring on the PURPLE! It's feminine and sophisticated and elegant all at the same time.
