Following on from last weeks yellow clothing feature, a number of you pointed out that purple also seems to be coming on strong for the coming high summer season. I have seen some amazing new pieces recently in purple which is definitely a first for me because it has NEVER been this strong before in men’s fashion since I can remember. I think it’s because men’s fashion is gaining momentum and soon we will hopefully get to the stage where women’s fashion is at; ideally in that designers are always pushing boundaries and coming up with new creative patterns, cuts and styles each and every season. It will also hopefully bring about better budget men’s fashion clothing as I think there is definitely space for someone like Topman to come along and really produce amazing pieces that are right on trend but at lower prices.
Anyway, purple again is a colour that looks amazing in the summer and really stands out. The best thing is, it is a contrasting colour that can be used WITH yellow as well in order to give a really funky summer look. The colours work so well together that you could throw on a yellow tee and lightweight purple knit and look amazing. Remember to not overdo it, you don’t want to look like a massive uncoordinated collection of colours or Willy Wonka when you put your outfits together. Subtlety is the key – one piece of bright statement clothing will do and you can add an accessory as well.
Here are some picks from the latest purple ranges. I suggest you add this amazing colour to your wardrobe quick, as it is an amazing colour and it won’t be around for too long in so many styles.
Hot Summer Colour – Purple Clothing
Here is a LOAD of stuff I have found through various stores on the Internet. There is a mixture of clothes, accessories and footwear. High and low price items are featured so hopefully there is something suitable for all of you. I particularly love the Adidas Samba’s which are on pre-order at the moment, but adding some cool sunglasses, a polo and a knit/jacket would be a good idea. Enjoy.
