Purple Reign

Purple Reign - Fashion - OOTD - Brag & Bone

Purple has often been ignored in the fashion sphere because of its similarity to more popular shades; darker tones are overlooked in favour of navy and black whilst lighter tones pale in comparison to the omnipresent millennial pink. But, with Pantone choosing blue-based “Ultra Violet” as their Colour of the Year for 2018 (see my ideas and inspiration for the hue here), purple finally seems to having its moment to shine.

& Other Stories is one of my favourite brands at the moment, providing collections of high-quality contemporary clothing, shoes and accessories from ateliers in Paris, Stockholm and Los Angeles. I picked up this jumper on a recent visit to the Manchester store. The bright violet hue caught my eye and the cropped silhouette, chunky knit and puffed sleeves stole my heart.

I paired the jumper with my favourite vinyl skinny trousers, a classic yet edgy staple in my wardrobe. Vinyl has been a steady trend for a couple of seasons and by what I saw in the A/W 2018 collections, its popularity will continue. I accessorised the look with a Gucci GG Marmont belt bag and a pair of “dad trainers”, both of which I received for my 23rd birthday earlier this week and absolutely adore. I feel truly blessed to have received such beautiful gifts and have had the most wonderful week celebrating my birthday with friends, family and so much food I think I might burst.
