Hot & happening: purple

by insightandout

The color purple is not only Oprah’s favorite book, it’s also an amazing and bright statement color.

Take notes from topmodel Hilary Rhoda and pair a lilac see through blouse with dark skinny jeans or go all the way like actress Kate Mara in a violet cocktail dress.

For those who are new to this flashy color, go for a pair of glamorous earrings or sunglasses. A chic clutch or some fancy killer heels always do the trick.
