There’s actually history to back why purple is known as a colour that symbolises wealth, power and luxury. In the ancient days, the colour came in limited supply and was only available in the Tyre region (modern Lebanon) of the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, only the richest rulers could afford it, granting it an exclusive status.
✔ Pair it with a white shirt to make the luxurious hue pop and off-set it with a deep blue or grey tie.
✔ You can also pick burgundy or wine-coloured accessories to create a more cohesive look.
✔ If you feel that your look is one-dimensional, pick a suit with a subtle texture to add depth.
✔ Pair a two-toned metallic purple bandhgala with a mandarin collar shirt and tapered chinos for a look that’s comfortable, but delivers on style.
✔ Keep accents to a minimum with a pocket square that adds a bolt of colour, pleasantly contrasting with your bandhgala.
✔ If you’re going the whole hog, swap out regular buttons, with more ornate brass-coloured ones.
