Purple for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Paired with a Print

Quote of the day: “Nature provides exceptions to every rule.” Margaret Fuller

Even if you’re not a huge purple color fan, I’ve noticed that it is in quite a few prints. Since this post’s category is all about prints, I tried to show it with different varieties of prints.  For myself, I chose a pastel print where there really isn’t any purple already in it.  For Nancy, I found a neutral print that looked good with her shirt.  And mom got to wear one of her print silk shells that incorporated the color purple in it. The other posts in this series can be viewed here with grey, and here with green.

Jodie (50’s) Outfit: My shoes were a steal at Goodwill for only $6.99. When I got home and looked at them in more detail, I realized I had seen the brand’s name before. So I googled it and found they were originally selling for over $200.

Charlotte (70’s) Outfit: I added the darker necklace & earrings so the outfit wouldn’t be so pastelly.  Looking at these pictures, it might have been better to have picked darker shoes. What do you think?

And purple accessories are always fun:

 

  • Wow, such beautiful ladies and I love the styling!

  • I embraced purple with a new leather jacket for Fall since I love it so much. I love it with grey, but after seeing this series I definitely will wear it with olive. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Your new leather jacket is purple? How fabulous!!! I can’t wait to see it!!!

  • Great score on the shoes! Love your jacket paired with that skirt, too. 🙂
