Continuing with our pre-coverage of the fall season, this week we are taking a look at a color that has been duly coronated as a must-have in the months to come. We are not talking about blue, brown, or even gray; those should already have a slot in your fall rotation. The color of note is none other than purple — yes, purple. And not just your standard fare purple either; we’re talking lavender, mulberry, plum, prune, violet — well, you get the picture. Purple can be as somber as your darkest blue, or it can be as soft as your lightest pink. All of which make this the designated utility color that needs to be in your closet right now. Here is how you can incorporate this ubiquitous shade in your dress with unfazed aplomb.
