Friday Favorites: Aubergine

This originally appeared as a guest post over on Sandy a la Mode.

Aubergine. Plum. Eggplant. Violet. Purple. Whatever you want to call it, this color has been a heavy hitter in fashion ever since ye old days when only royalty could afford it. Luckily you don’t have to be super rich in modern times to sport this shade, though I personally always feel quite queenly when wearing it. It’s my favorite color, hands down. Not only is it’s deep jewel hue pretty on its own, but you can pair it with anything! I’ve worn it with everything from a deep red to a mustard yellow to light turquoise to midnight black. It’s so versatile, and I think one of those colors that’s flattering on anybody. And, lucky us, it’s a prominent color this season! So today I thought I’d share some items to help bring this lovely color into your life, if it’s not there already.



Click anywhere on the image above to be taken to a round-up of the shopping links. I want every single one of these, but I’ll try to limit myself to 2 or 3. 😉

What do you think of this color? How would you wear it?



  1. Ooooh, so pretty! I love rich, jewel hued clothing and accessories. I really would love that leather jacket, with a black tee and jeans and some nice boots in a matching color. 😀

    1. I’m lusting after that jacket, too. It’s a bit too pricey for me to easily indulge… maybe if I get a huge paycheck I’ll get myself an Xmas preset. 🙂

  2. I’m not a fan of purple. I’m not sure why, but it’s never really been a favorite color of mine. I do like all of these pieces, though!

  3. Lovely! I have been super in love with this purple as well as the burnt orange that seems to be all the rage this season! Thanks for sharing this!
