As you start to add key pieces to your closet for fall, keep in mind: plum purple is one of the new "it colors" for fall. The rich purple hue was all over the fall 2011 runway including designers like L'Wren Scott and Michael Kors.
Actress Freida Pinto wore a pretty plum purple Lanvin dress a few days ago in NYC. She accessorized the look with a pair of strappy Manolos and a Tod's snakeskin bag. The ruffle front dress is beautiful and sophisticated.
You can get the look for less with this gorgeous plum purple gathered cowl neck dress. This dress is around $100. The budget-friendly dress is sleeveless, and shares the same sheath-like shape of the Lanvin. The look for less pick features chic draping, gathered at one hip, and doesn't have any ruffles. Think of this as a sophisticated translation of the Lanvin masterpiece.
