Aubergine is making its way to the forefront of colors for this season’s fashion. That’s why we’ve incorporated this rich hue into many of our fall pieces, so our customers can look and feel confident while staying on-trend. Have you been browsing items featuring this stellar color? Here’s everything you need to know about aubergine:
What is aubergine?
Aubergine has been wiggling its way into the style world, making its most apparent debut this season. As such, it may be a new shade for some ladies. Essentially, aubergine is the fashion industry’s term for eggplant purple. In fact, people in some countries outside the U.S. refer to eggplants as aubergines, making the word all the more appropriate for describing the rich, purple hue.
Purple has traditionally been associated with royalty and opulence, and aubergine is no exception. Wearing this deep shade of purple keeps your ensemble on-trend with the season while eliciting elegance and grandeur.
Integrate aubergine in small doses
Because aubergine is such a bold color, it’s best to incorporate it in small doses or at least with other complementing hues. With that in mind, let this rich shade serve as a way to showcase your daring style. Don’t go with just any aubergine blouse. Opt for a top with a deep-V neckline. Not only does this shirt style create dimension in your ensemble, but the longer lines of the V-neck help lengthen your upper body, contributing to an overall leaner shape. Easily pair this type of top with stretch jeans for a fabulous nighttime look, or show off your sophisticated side at the office by wearing this shirt with tummy control dress pants or a pencil skirt. Plus, with only one item featuring this color, you’ll effectively integrate the hue into your ensemble without overwhelming your style.
This shade is a great choice when incorporating pops of color into your outfit, and aubergine accessories provide the perfect way to apply this strategy. First, know that adding an unexpected element, such as a bright color, into your ensemble allows you to enhance your figure. For example, a vibrant yellow belt on a neutral navy dress may put the focus on your small middle. Likewise, wearing bold, aubergine shoes can draw eyes to your feet, counterbalancing your upper half – an effective body slimming strategy.
If you want to wear aubergine all over, go with a patterned dress that hosts this color. With a print, you still won’t overpower your ensemble with this hue, but you’ll effortlessly showcase a beautifully bold outfit. Make a dress even more appropriate for fall by pairing it with knee-high boots or tights. Throw on a lightweight scarf for added warmth and autumn flair.
Colors that complement aubergine
Pairing multiple colors in an outfit is always a challenge, especially with a brilliant hue like aubergine. Neutrals will always complement this shade, as they would with any other color. Consider wearing an aubergine blouse with jeans, black dress pants or a gray cardigan.
Another easy way to work aubergine in with several tones is to wear it in a print. When the pattern automatically incorporates other colors, you’ll feel confident knowing your vibrant outfit was designed with color coordination in mind.
If you want to really show off your style skills, wear aubergine with colors that complement purple. According to Cosmopolitan’s explanation of the color wheel, purple pairs well with green. Coordinate shades by wearing this deep purple with a dark forest, moss or olive green.
