Purple and white is a very toned down but extremely beautiful colour combination for clothing. It’s bright, soft and has just the right amount of presence. Purple and white fabric looks good on practically every skin colour. For darker complexions, lighter shades of purple would work very nicely. For lighter skin colours dark purple suits that complexion better. Mixing purple with white makes the outfit look even more ceremonial.

Purple and gold is the ultimate royal outfit. Gold is of similar nature to purple in the sense that it signifies royalty and wealth as well. Pairing purple with gold is truly beautiful. In pairing purple and gold keep the gold less than the purple. If possible have accents of gold rather than an equal portion of both colours. Avoiding silver jewelry will reduce awkwardness in this colour combination. For this combination, few gold jewelry will be the best option. Rings don’t usually fall under this rule.
