Style it up and evoke fashion royalty this season, relying on shades of purple to power you through the season ahead.
Never mind pretty in pink, perfectly purple is where it’s at for AW12/13, with everything from dresses to stockings and partywear to handbags incorporating the plummiest of tones.
Dress it up in designs on offer at Coast – always a must-stop-shop for elegant, but sexy, occasionwear. The Alva duchess dress continues the ‘fit for royalty theme’, while the Emmy crepe dress is sure to win you a style award.
If a bodycon dress makes you feel beautiful, Phase Eight offer some eye-catching options such as the Harriet number – with intricate straps, while Rocha. John Rocha’s latest collection presents a seemingly prim and pleated dress, with sheer, see-through panels adding a hint of your inner harlot – quite the royal scandal. Over at Quiz, embellished party pieces will add a jewel or two to your fashion crown.

In the accessories department, Debenhams has stocked up on stockings to give a peek of purple as you leg it about town, with courts from Planet and a studded clutch from Coast each a sexy suggestion of ways to have a lot of fashion fun with a little splash of colour.

Finally, we’re royally excited to have discovered this gorgeous purple handbag from Jonathan Kelsey for Edition. In fact, one might even go so far as to say we feel somewhat (plum)jammy – perfectly primed for the purple parade ahead.
