NEW COLORS FOR FW17: PURPLE

By Lakeisha Goedluck, October 18, 2017

This season, it’s all about infusing your wardrobe with unexpected shades. From Christopher Shannon to Prada, copy the styles seen on the runways back in January and go for a rich, retro palette. Purple is a key hue for FW17, so compile a ’fit in varying shades of the color for a tonal look that checks the right sartorial boxes.

For your base, nail the '70s streetwear aesthetic and go for a grape-colored track jacket with a standout zip. Switch tones and pick a Vetements-style oversized hoodie in a regal eggplant shade to wear over the top. As your get-up is predominantly purple, you need to counterbalance the color with neutral pieces — layer up with a cream houndstooth coat to pare down the vibrancy of your top half.

Follow suit down low and opt for a pair of side-stripe corduroy bottoms in navy. Choose a pair with an off-white stripe in order to correspond to the minimalist vibe of your coat. On foot, rock a pair of Reebok Revenge Plus TRC sneakers that feature the colors of your coat and pants to tie your look together. To finish, tip your hat to the highly popular '70s dad trend with a velvet coral cap.
