Purple is an amazing color as it has so many associated meanings; some of which date back to castles and royalty! Do you want to convey gracefulness, femininity, elegance and beauty?

The deeper shades of purple, such as plum, wine, eggplant and royal, tend to convey sophistication, wealth, prosperity, luxury and are associated with nobility.
Fun fact: Why is purple so highly revered in history and has become associated with these meanings? It’s due to how difficult it was to produce purple dye. It required a large quantity of materials and only the wealthy could afford it. A combination of several shades can help you achieve the perfect balance of romance, elegance and glamour!
