Colored heels have been a big trend recently and are the perfect way to brighten up an outfit. Purple heels are not as daring as they may seem as long as you know the right way to wear them. Purple is also a great wedding accent color and purple shoes are a great way to tie your wedding color into your outfit to complete the look. Colored heels have been around for a while but it has just recently become more popular to wear pastel and bright fun colors.
How to Wear Purple Heels
Now a days there are a wide variety of purple shades to choose from in shoes. Colors range from lavender pastel, to plum, orchid and amethyst colors. If you are going to a more formal event then I would choose a deeper shade of purple since it will make you look more appropriate to the situation. Lighter shades of purple work well for fun daytime outfits.
How to wear this trend
For a daytime outfit pair neutral pants with the purple heels. Since the pants will be close to the heels you do not want competing colors. For your shirt is okay to have hints of purple within it even if it is the same shade as your shoes. With your accessories I would choose a different shade of purple than your shoes. You do not want everything to look to matchy so different shades of purple in your purse and jewelry will make you look more put together. For an evening outfit you can pair deep purple stilettos with a black dress and hints of purple in your jewelry and other accessories.
What not to do
When wearing this color make sure that you do not go overboard. With any trend you do not want to wear to much of it in one outfit. If you want to wear multiple purple items in one outfit it is best to do different shades of purple and stick to just purple heels and a minimum amount of purple accessories.

People Wearing Trend
I do not like these purple stilettos paired with the green and blue plaid pants. It is best to pair neutral pants with a purple colored heel to avoid making your outfit look too busy.
Personally I would not mix purple with another bright color such as blue. With two prominent colors such as purple and blue in an outfit they compete too much with each other.
These purple heels look great with the plain white dress. Pairing bright colors with neutrals is always a good way to add color into your outfit.
