Eccentric, romantic and wonderfully regal, the colour purple is making a long-awaited comeback. If you're not ready to go all out, purple accessories for women are a stylish way to dip your toes into the trend. This rich hue is great for lending your outfits a quirky but elegant twist.
It's all about lilacs and lavenders at the moment, so expect to find plenty of those subtle shades in the women's purple accessories collection. A clutch bag worn with a navy lace dress makes an easy wedding outfit. Add silver sandals and jewellery to really make the ensemble pop. A mint-coloured day dress with a lilac shoulder bag is just the right amount of girlie. Pair with a distressed denim jacket and leather ankle boots to lend a dash of riot-grrrl style. Purple hues work especially well with copper and grey tones. Bring the pastels trend into the office by teaming a purple handbag with grey work trousers, a pink silk blouse and some copper earrings.
Violet, mauve and magenta, oh my. These darker women's purple accessories are a bit more daring than their pastel counterparts, and can really lift a monochrome outfit. They also go well with paisley-print dresses, which is definitely one to bear in mind when you're planning your warmer-weather wardrobe. For an updated twist on the gothic look, pick a neon purple accessory for women and team it with a long black tulle skirt and grey off-the-shoulder top. For big nights out, wear your purple bag with a silver sequin skirt and a black blouse. Some chunky heels add a bit of school-disco attitude to this 90-inspired ensemble.
