Julianne Moore’s Purple Outfit Proves The Bold Hue Is Surprisingly Wearable
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.
