Lifestyle | Style: Plum ... Fashion Industry's New Black

Published August 30, 2007

Posted Aug. 30, 2007 -- Fashion industry’s new black is making a statement like never before on the red carpet, the runways and on today’s hottest stars. It’s the color of an eggplant and it’s the color that you can’t do without this fall. So before you grab your trusty little black dress or purchase yet another black blouse to where with your black tuxedo pants, head to the mall and Go Plum Crazy. Join the likes of Kelly Rowland, Kerry Washington, and supermodel Naomi Campbell, and get drenched by the Purple Rain.

From head-to-toe, here’s a head start on where to go and what to get for $100 or less!

Casual Perfection
Paired with a black skinny jean, the Layering Drape-Neck Tunic in mulberry ($29, Newport-news.com) will be a show stopper for sure, and you won’t miss a beat in Urban Outfitters’ 5 Pocket Skinny Cord in purple ($49.50). Or play on the menswear trend with their Lux Double Knit Vest in egg plant ($42).

Foot Fetish
Step out in style with Charles Vince Camuto’s daytime pump in wine baby ($89, onlineshoes.com). Or keep it comfy and still be flat-out fabulous with Old Navy’s purple Quilted Ballet Flat ($19.50).

Blink Beautifully
Seems that MAC Cosmetics got the memo also, because their plum hewed shadow options seem endless. Cranberry, Plum Dressing, Beauty Marked and Trax, name just a few of the fabulous purple shadows they’re pushing.

This season there’s no reason to blend in with the masses. Who wants to be predictable in black? Go for the wow factor and turn heads in something Plum-tastic!
