Purple: The New Black

This Spring,  Purple is “In”

By Janine Giorgenti

Once associated as a color reserved for royalty, rich, elite, and powerful; purple is a trending color. Expect to see a lot more men wearing purple as the nicer weather settles into the New York tri-state area and spring wardrobes start to take the stage.

Purple is a very “diverse” color, with shades ranging from an – almost – “soft white” to a dark “navy-ish” shade; which makes it versatile in its usage and what it can go with. In a way, purple allows you to use it as a dominant or subtle color in your overall ensemble.

Need more incentive to wear purple? It may actually help your chances with women! That’s right; according to a 2012 study, 36% of women were more willing to accept a date with a man dressed in purple.

Purple is seen as a color that equates with intelligence, and we all know that intelligence is sexy!

Looking to add some purple to your dress shirt collection? Giorgenti New York carries an extensive collection of purple dress shirts, in a variety of styles and patterns.
