Colors that pair well with purple are neutrals, complementary colors, analogous colors, and metallics.
I get this question because purple can seem like a challenging color to pair or style, but once you know which colors look great with purple, you'll totally be unstoppable!
Let's dive a little deeper
First thing is first. The shade of purple will depend on what to pair your outfit with. If you are going to wear pastel purple, pair it with other pastel shades and the same goes for primary colors.
- If you are going for a sophisticated or safe look, neutrals are always a great choice to pair along with your purple outfit. Think black, white, beige and gray.
- If you want to stand out, go for complementary colors. These are the colors on the opposite side of purple on the color wheel. They look fantastic with purple and make a gorgeous statement outfit. For example, you could pair your purple dress with a yellow purse and a green necklace. The complementary colors to purple are yellow, green and orange.
- If you are going for that effortless vibe, go for analogous colors. These are the colors next to purple on the color wheel. Pairing pink and blue with purple tends to make for an effortless and easy aesthetic outfit.
