    HOW to STYLE... A SLINKY PURPLE BLOUSE

    The embodiment of style, luxe and serenity, purple is an ideal shade to wear to bolster confidence in any scenario and on any occasion. As a bright, non-neutral colour, styling a sultry purple blouse may be challenging, especially for someone who is only just embarking upon the journey to self-discovery regarding personal style. In this article, a multitude of different looks have been compiled, comprised of a variety of colour combinations and outfits for different occasions, with the aim of inspiring the contemporary woman to explore colour and experiment with her wardrobe.

    ANDALUSIAN
    Channel the serenity of azure coastlines and the passion of flamenco in this Andalusia-inspired outfit. The yellow skirt captures the bright delight of summer, with the abundance of pleats creating movement that reflects the Spanish dance, whilst the purple blouse adds a degree of luxe formality to create a versatile look appropriate for any occasion. Opt for some colourful accessories to add cohesiveness to the outfit as well as a touch of playfulness, enabling the total expression of personal style.

    GARDEN SOIREE
    Why not welcome the Spring and Summer seasons by embracing nature in your wardrobe and incorporating flowers into your everyday looks? Over the past few months, neutrals have reigned supreme, so now is the time to break the chains of minimalism and reach for printed pieces! Seen on a vast array of Summer runways, from Versace’s jungle-inspired print to Stella McCartney’s sweeping floral maxi dresses. For a more casual take, pair our sultry purple blouse with some pastel floral trousers; the pastel colouring makes the trousers more accessible whilst providing a good colour palette to complement the bright purple blouse. Bring back the pink hues in a delicate jacket and reintroduce green tones in a pair of sling-backs or sandals for a summer-inspired, floral, feminine look.To get the look:

    ON THE WILD SIDE
    Purple often represents creativity and mysticism yet can be perplexing when styling. Colour blocking has long been used in the fashion world and is a trend that works excellently with the boldness of purple. Incorporating green and pink adds layers of colour for the empowered woman wanting to stand out. Wearing our sultry purple blouse alongside a green mini skirt and hot pink, oversized coat creates a daring outfit, the colours blending together in a bright and unapologetic way. Subtle accessories prevent overpowering the look, so a mint green bag and black boots finish the look perfectly.

    PARISIAN CHIC
    Channel one of the ‘Big Four’ fashion capitals in this Parisian-inspired look for the fashion-forward and sophisticated lady. Our purple blouse is a chic accompaniment to a pair of green wide leg trousers. As contrasting colours, purple and green work harmoniously together to create a contemporary look, whilst the wide leg trousers help to maintain a stylish elegance. Stripes are a mainstay in fashion, timelessly classic, so why not try layering your blouse with a striped cardigan? Finish the look with some statement accessories: a pair of bright embellished flats and a classic bag make for a uber sophisticated, stylish look.

    URBAN ARTIST
    Curating an outfit is an act of artistic expression, using colours, textures, and cuts to express the different facets making up a person. To add some artistic flair to your style, why not pair our purple blouse with trousers of a similar hue to create a majestic canvas upon which to accessorise? Meanwhile, layering a patterned jacket over the blouse allows the print the space to stand out, whilst the abstract nature of the print imbues the whole outfit with a sense of calm serenity, balancing out the dark hue of the trousers. Including a yellow bag helps to connect each element of the outfit with a playful pop of colour, and a pair of simple heels keeps the look feminine, sophisticated, and wearable for any occasion. Finish the look with some statement jewellery to really home in on your inner ‘Urban Artist’.

    WOMAN ON A MISSION
    Power dressing and power suits have been a staple in women’s wardrobes for decades, but that doesn’t mean that a little reinvention every now and then isn’t necessary. Vamp up your go-to office attire by incorporating more bold, powerful colours; our demure, purple blouse matches perfectly with a red suit, a colour denoting confidence, bravery, and passion – key qualities of the modern, empowered woman. Accessorising with some baby pink stilettos adds a touch of femininity and fun whilst a simple, black bag ties the look together in a sophisticated and functional manner. Finish off with statement earrings for a look where businesswoman meets style icon.
