Skinny, purple pants are not the easiest to pull off, but here, paired with a striped purple fitted tee and deep purple cardigan, Mrs. O works them with confidence. In general, skinny pants tend to be polarizing. Some find them unflattering no matter what your figure. Others love the slim lines and ankle cropped length. As Mrs. O wears them, paired with ballet flats, the effect can be very Audrey Hepburn. Add purple to the equation, and there's bound to be an even greater difference of opinion.
Anyone who's shopped this fall is familiar with the rows of brightly-colored denim and cords that fill retail stores like J. Crew, Madewell and Uniqlo. Too much for some perhaps, but they add vibrancy to Mrs. O's ensemble above. Here, Mrs. O wears the "it" color of the season: purple. Even Mrs. O's petite floral earrings match the palette.
