Outfit details: Top, Paris; Skirt, Ann Taylor; Shoes, Vince Camutto
Why it works: Color on color is a streamlined look for work. It reeks of sophisitication when it is done properly, but can be overkill in the wrong shades. With the cream detailing and shoes, the purple gets broken up enough to be nice, not overwhelming.
What it needs: Jewelry- bracelet, earrings, or ring.
Dress it up: Tuck in the blouse, pointy-toed shoe in more subdued color.
Dress it down: Off-white tee, flats instead of heels.
Purple is IN people- try it!
