The color purple has always been quite special. It uniquely symbolizes royalty, nobility, luxury, and wealth.
Even in the world of fashion, purple dresses exude femininity and luxury. Ever felt like a queen whenever you wear purple evening gowns? It’s psychologically proven that purple dresses make you feel connected to a sense of higher-self.
When to Wear a Purple Dress
A purple dress makes an excellent addition to your family of dresses. This is because they are quite versatile and can fit in most events and occasions. They also fit in all year round, so you don’t have to wait for a specific season to rock any gorgeous purple dress.
However, choosing specific purple dresses for the right occasions can make your event one to remember. A striking purple dress for formal occasions will be lovely if you’re looking to stand out in the crowd. Striking purple also looks luxurious at a gala, awards-giving event, or charity.
A pretty lilac shade of purple will also make bridesmaids stand out on your wedding day. If it’s a purple-themed wedding, lilac, violet, mauve shades of purple will make your bridesmaids and mother of the day look marvelous. Of course, it also suits wedding guests.
Turning 16? A purple gown is chic and sweet. Imagine a sugar-sweet shade of purple adorned in a tiara and silver shoes, a sight to behold on your big day. Purple dresses also make you a head-turner at prom. Select a shade of purple that enhances your skin tone and bedazzle your date, Queen!

What Color Shoes To Wear With a Purple Dress?
Because purple is such an alluring color, knowing the type of shoes to pair with it can almost be a chore. Of course, no one wants to pair the wrong color of shoes with a suave designer dress. So, what colors should you be looking at?
If you’re not so daring, black will always give you a safe landing. They’re practical, and you really can’t go wrong in black heels, whether sandals or thigh-high boots. Just make sure you choose the right kind of shoes to go with the appropriate gown.
Silver is another beautiful color that just works with purple. High metallic shoes are great for cocktails, bridal train dresses, or parties. A beige, white, or black purse should also be the right companion for your silver shoes.
White strappy sandals or shoes look chic on a lilac shade of purple or other soft shades of purple. They sweetly accentuate your feet. You can grab a white, beige, silver, or black purse to go with.
As odd as this might seem, beige or nude shoes also make a lovely choice. They’re warm and cool at the same time and gorgeous on the skin. Other exciting choices of shoe color that will suit your purple dress include some shades of blue, burgundy, or gold.
