Purple is actually a classic colour in fashion accessories. A purple scarf may vary in tone from deep plum to pastel lavender. Purple scarves work well when combined with black, grey and beige outfits, complimenting both basic everyday outfits and more glamorous evening looks. Scarves which combine purple and other tones are also a hit, especially in vintage and fantasy prints. Purple-based wool and silk designs are particularly elegant, as well as pieces in a blend of the two fabrics.
