The Vogue Series: Why You Should Wear and Slay in Purple

What makes Purple unique?
Purple is a secondary color that contains an equal amount of red and blue. In the psychology of colors, blue signifies serenity while red passes for passion. Thus, purple is an equal balance of the serenity which blue signifies and the passion which red stands for.

Purple depicts Royalty. To show the world a dream of being in position of Royalty and power, wearing purple is a best bet. Purple has long been associated with wealth and royalty stemming from history's records. The Purple dye was really expensive at thhe time as it originally came from snails boiled in lead vats. It took many thousands of snails to produce tiny amounts of this expensive dye as it took some 12,000 shellfish to extract 1.5 grams of the pure dye and this is barely enough for dying a single garment. The earliest purple dyes date back to about 1900 B.C. This was a major reason why this color was used primarily for garments of the emperors, privileged, rich, and wealthy individuals.

Again, Purple is a cool color: Anyone with a cool undertone (an undertone helps determine the best color that will look best on you) can wear both red and blue easily, making it easy for them to wear all purples.  Purple is a colour like teal that can be worn by both warm and cool undertones. The difference is that cool undertones can wear all shades of purple, while warm undertones can only successfully wear the warmer shade of the purple color.

Purple is a bright color (like pink) that can help add spice to femininity. In the 21st century, flashy and bright colors are attributed to the female sex and when combined with pink, it is associated with eroticism, femininity, and seduction. The fact that purple and pink are attributed to femininity doesn't mean a guy cannot wear them though.

If well paired, purple can also give formal looks as desired. They are not as dark as black that are suitable to be worn for burials and not definitely as bright as white that is suitable for any sort of bridal look. Ways to pair include:
Purple overall(all Purple)
Purple and dark neutrals(black, grey and brown)
Purple and light neutrals(nude and white)
Purple and prints(stripes, dots, and florals)
Purple and bright colors
Purple and metallic colors (silver and gold)
5. Magical looks: Purple shades of dresses really makes you appear magical. This is a clue for events whose red carpet theme is "magic" or "a magical look". Are you confused about the color your bridesmaids would wear on your wedding day? No further confusion, simply go for purple, as the aim is to look bright and magical, but not in any way look like a bride. Purple is simply the color of fantasy and magic.
