Purple Reigns: Meet Your New Fall Color
Lil' Kim pumps up your fall style with purple.
Whether it's plum, oxblood, fuschia, or lilac, purple has been popping up everywhere this fall. Lil' Kim certainly seems to have gotten the memo:
There's no question her skyscraper Giuseppe Zanotti heels make a statement, but they're definitely not something we could pull off every day. Here are a few ways to incorporate the regal color into your wardrobe without breaking the bank (or your ankles).
Lovely in Lilac
Although we typically favor darker, jewel-toned colors as the weather gets colder, springtime pastels were all the rage on the Autumn/Winter runways this year. Of course, the key is moderation—dressing in head-to-toe lilac might get your mistaken for an Easter egg or Stepford wife. When balanced with a more neutral palate—especially navy—lilac takes on a fresh and modern look.

The Dark Side
For a more traditional fall look, pair dark shades of purple with gold accessories for a look that's mysterious and decadent. Dark nails and lips are also on trend this season—just remember to keep the rest of your makeup subdued to balance a vampy lip.
