[quote cite=’Monroe & Main’ align=’right’]Aubergine is the fashion industry’s term for eggplant purple. In fact, people in some countries outside the U.S. refer to eggplants as aubergines, making the word all the more appropriate for describing the rich, purple hue.[/quote] This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity, and is hosted by Still Blonde after all these YEARS and Modly Chic. This fall is all about Color Confidence at Monroe & Main. This multi blogging event has several bloggers showing how they incorporate color into their ensemble.

Monroe Don’t be afraid of color! Incorporating color into your ensemble is a great way to feel fresh, fashion-forward and fabulous. Monroe and Main Fall spotlight colors are: Cobalt, Red, Merlot, Orange & Aubergine!

I chose Aubergine. Purple is my favorite color and I love to wear it! Monroe and Main has included this rich hue into several of their fall pieces, but what is Aubergine?

Purple has traditionally been aligned with royalty, and aubergine is no exception. This deep shade of purple can elicit elegance and grandeur in the simplest outfit. It is super slimming and looks fabulous paired with these awesome shoes!


I love Monroe and Main clothing, they carry quality pieces and promote fashion that fits. Their outfits can even make a day with a boomerang look like date night!Monroemain

The color aubergine looks well in splashes of color and if you are going for the whole piece you should pair with black pants.

  1. I learned about the color wheel and how to create different looks.I like the idea of taking colors from opposite sides of the wheel for a more dramatic effect. courtafi2138 at gmail .com

  2. I love all shades of purple! I think it looks good on everybody. I have to have those purple shoes you posted a photo of!

  3. I learned that for a sharper, more sophisticated look, you can contrast the pink with bold colors like black and navy.

  4. I have always loved aubergine. I would love to wear the top you paired with the black pants. It’s such a flattering style.

  5. I rally, really like those purple shoes. I don’t know what I’d wear them with, but I still want them. LOL.

  6. My favorite tip is to wear an aubergine blouse with jeans, black dress pants or a gray cardigan to balance the colors.

  7. I am loving all of these “new” fall colors. My hardest choice is to pick a favorite between aubergine, merlot and even the gold/yellow. I wish it could be fall all year so I could wear these.

  8. I read that when wearing a bold color, incorporate it in small doses or at least with other complementing hues.

  9. I am loving the Warm Me Up Sweater Duster! I like it because it is very slimming, and I really like all the colors!

  10. Monroe and Main is a place I love to shop. I feel their clothes represent how I like to dress, sophisticated and well covered! I love the patterns and their style!

  11. Monroe and Main has great tips about adding color into your wardrobe using the color wheel. Choose a color opposite each other to add dramatic take-notice effect!

  12. On “How to wear aubergine”, I learned “to incorporate it in small doses or at least with other complementing hues” so not to overwhelm the eyes of others.

  13. I learned how to incorporate more color by wearing a print, then pulling one color from that print to emphazise it.

  14. I’m so ready to wear fall clothing. I’ve never heard of this brand before but many of the items look to be my taste. That purple color is a lovely shade on you.

  15. Monroe and Main has pieces that are of really good quality. I have some, and they wash beautifully, and look just as good after many wearings as they do after the first. Plus, aren’t those shoes in your post just gorgeous?

  16. I agree that Monroe & Main is a
    Star when it comes to having lovely outfits that are good for the office during the day and also great for date night.
