Purple Reign: The bold fall suit 3 ways

Fall is in full effect and I love it. All the deep and rich colors that work their way from the back of the closet onto the streets just makes me feel all warm inside. Fall is a beautiful season and it is way bigger than brown, and orange. I love to play with color in the fall to stand out a bit more and to truly represent the season, so I picked up this sharp, deep purple suit from New Look, and highlighted it just for you.  As a little style bonus I rocked this suit 3 different ways to show you how to get the most out of your “dress cloths”.

The Evening Suit

Classic cool here. Simple sleek and to the point. Pull this look out when its time to impress. The color is bold but classy at the same time. pair it with a solid tie and black shoes to get that red carpet reation.

I kept the  shoes and accessories very simple.The shoes are polished and black and you can’t go wrong with that. The Nike leather band watch has a pop of color but the design is fairly simple. I added a bit of contrast with the Hugo pocket square which helped bring some of those classic fall colors into the mix and finally I finished the look off with a Shipp and 36th handmade felt lapel rose in black.

Dressed down but dressed up Look

To Dress Down the suit I lost the tie and added some layers. Pairing this suit with a denim shirt and zip down hoodie turned this red carpet look into your everyday semi casual go-to. The beanie added that extra urban flair or “swag” as I like to call it. Notice how I still added the pocket square and opted for the classic round toed brown shoes instead of sneakers. Details like these are what makes this a “semi-casual” look. You can have a meet and greet with a potential client in this outfit and then hit the town later without skipping a beat.

To Dress that suit down even further, loose the pants and toss on your denim! I paired the New Look suit jacket with a slim cut denim shirt and my favorite pair of jeans in my closet (I got them at H&M for 30 bucks and they fit like a dream). I finished the look off with a Shipp and 36th Redwood daisy Lapel Flower to add a little extra pop of color.

And there you have it! The bold fall suit 3 different ways. Play around with the combination as you see fit. try throwing on your favorite solid V neck T-shirt instead of the denim shirt in the casual look or trading in your jacket for a nice cardigan sweater in the semi casual look. the possibilities are endless. How about you go out there and embrace fall in a new and stylish way. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
