Just last spring, clothing stores were lined with all things soft lilac and pale lavender. But following 2019's obsession with rich, neon shades, it's no surprise that a vibrant purple hue has taken the place of its pastel counterparts. If wearing a full, violet-hued look feels a little out of your wheelhouse, Julianne Moore's purple outfit shows just how wearable a bright, monochrome look can truly be.
The iconic actor was photographed arriving to an appearance on Good Morning America in New York City on Tues. looking like a vision in purple. Moore donned a mohair and wool-blend sweater by Isabel Marant that featured a slightly cropped length, billowing sleeves, and an open weave pattern. Instead of going the traditional route in a pair of black trousers or dark-wash denim, the 58-year-old turned heads in a matching pair of purple, pleated pants with a high waist and wide legs. She accessorized with classic, pointed black pumps and oversized sunglasses.
A daring contrast against Moore's iconic red hair, the electric hue acted as an exciting pop of color. She wore her medium-length hair down with a side part and a silky-straight blowout. In order to let her exciting ensemble do most of the talking, she opted for glowing skin, rose-tinted cheeks, light-pink lipstick, and tiny gold hoops on each ear.
Although the idea of a monochromatic outfit may conjure up images of all black, white-on-white, or a full-on neutral look, combining colors is a lot easier than you may think. Buying a two-piece set is the obvious solution, but mixing and matching similar colors can make for more depth, dimension, and texture within an outfit.
Try something elegant like Moore by pairing a purple knit with pleated pants, or go the casual route by throwing on a purple tee with matching denim, joggers, or leggings. If you're looking for an even edgier look, try a purple mini and a menswear-inspired button-down or leather trousers with a satin top.
