Style | The Purple JNBY Sweater

I’m a sucker for colour. Especially the colour purple (holler Oprah!).

So this electric purple sweater from JNBY called to me.

Naturally I paired it with gold (holler Lakers!).

For realz, it’s my new favourite staple. It’s light enough to layer like crazy. Polished enough to wear to work with slacks. And cool enough to wear with shorts in the spring. See? Oprah knows what’s up.

P.S. The Anthology’s Twitter background is purple too.

    Beautiful skirt! What’s your opinion on sparkle/sequined things (blazers, shorts, skirts, dresses) after the holidays?

    I’ve always loved purple and in all varieties: lavender, deep royal, mauve. It’s so versatile. Paired with gold, it’s perfect.

    Lola — I’m all for sparkle year-round! Especially when worn in a more subdued way. I think sequins add some razzle dazzle to an outfit that’s otherwise neutral in colour (I wouldn’t necessarily wear sequins with jewel tones because that feels very holiday-esque).

    And crazy vintage sequin shirts and dresses are always good to go!

    Liv — Me too! I was such a lavender teenager! Everything I owned was light purple.
