    I am supposed to be attending a party that I will need a pair of slacks, dress shoes, button-down, and tie. The color theme is purple so I will need to incorporate that color somewhere in my outfit. I have no clue what to do or what to where when it comes to colors other than grey, white, blue and khaki. Can someone please shed some light on the issue I am having, it would be greatly appreciated!

    I suggest that you get a purple tie and purple socks and wear it with a blue blazer, white shirt and gray or khaki trousers. If you want to go wild get a purple pocket square too.

    When you say blue blazer what shade of blue? True blue, or navy?

    Either shade of blue would be fine, I routinely wear purple with both. I would get a good purple tie and a purple pocket square, one with a print or design though (like paisley).
