In How to Dress for Success Edith Head eloquently enlightens us on ways we can… well… dress for success. In chapter seven of this popular book, Edith talks about the colours we can wear to suit our complexion and how we need to understand our colour aura (the colour of our eyes, complexion and hair). She also defines a range of colour groups, including, The Elegant Colours, The Young Colours, The Slimming Colours, The Excitement Colours, The Man-Pleasing Colours (men might be immediately attracted to red but they all wear blue. Single ladies, opt for blue), and The You Colours.
‘The Excitement Colours’ caught my attention because they’re fun and so very on trend right now! Edith says that they “never fail to get a second look.”
So with that in mind, I thought I’d do a series of posts on each of Edith’s excitement colours. Starting with purple in honour of Edith’s book.
Hope you enjoy!
Shades of purple, violet and lavender suit most colour auras – in particular fair to medium skin, blondes and brunettes.

Amethysts are said to be an extremely powerful and protective stone with strong healing, cleansing and spiritual powers. (The Crystal Bible, Judy Hall). They’re pretty too!
