Getty Images/InStyle Although we're always tempted to try new, flashy trends, like clogs or kooky cutouts, there's something to be said for making the most out of what's already in our closets. For Fall 2022, that'll be pretty easy. Aside from wardrobe staples being among the hottest styles, purple clothing and accessories are having a major moment, possibly even replacing Barbiecore pink. We first took notice of the purple craze during New York Fashion Week earlier this year, where the color — in a variety of different shades, from light to dark, blue-tinted or kinda-pink — appeared in Fall 2022 designs from PatBO, Coach, Prabal Gurung, and more. Later on, it continued to pop up in collections shown in London, Milan, and Paris, proving this was not just a fluke. The 8 Best Spring 2023 Trends We Saw at New York Fashion Week Versace Fall 2022.

There's nothing stopping you from layering a cardigan over your bright purple summer dress, or rocking purple pants as a way to spice up your 50-degree outfits. Celebrities and their stylists are also aware that purple is hot right now. Remember Florence Pugh's matching set from Venice Film Festival? The Don't Worry Darling actress even went as far as slipping into purple heels and carrying a purple bag, thus nailing the monochromatic look.

A purple purse will quickly provide a little spice to whatever you're wearing. Getty Images Plus, while there's nothing wrong with rocking pastels year-round, darker shades will work well with your winter wardrobe. A deep purple, long-sleeved top can quickly be layered under a vest for added interest.
