Commandress Color Week features work-appropriate clothes and accessories in Fall 2012′s most gorgeous colors, including dark purple, dark green, peacock blue and burgundy.
I love all shades of purple: lilac, lavender, violet, dark plum, and everything in between. This fall is a bonanza for fans of dark purple – including violet and dark plum.
Once upon a time, sumptuary laws limited the wearing of purple to royalty. We all can (and should!) wear purple now, but it remains a symbol of luxury.

Dark purple is a wonderful alternative to black, brown, and navy because it is rich, beautiful and unexpected. In particular, dark purple is a lovely color for a dress. Purple is an excellent base color that is easy to match and looks wonderful with so many other colors – both muted and bright. And dark purple is just as slimming as black.
Here are six of my favorite purple dresses this fall!
