Purple has long been the color of royalty. Its rich shades will make any t-strap flat sandal or peep-toe d'orsay pump look elegant. Even platform slingbacks in the softest suede will dress up any casual look. Purple can be worn year-round, with dark purples during the colder months, lighter and even pastel shades during the Spring season, and a bright bold hue during the summer to brighten any outfit. Purple is also a very complimentary color, so anyone can wear it and look like an aristocrat.
