In the Fall 2012 runway color wars, purple managed to be a clear winner. We saw the royal hue popping up in collections across the globe, from Zero + Maria Cornejo to Prada to Saint Laurent, and no matter the exact shade or intensity, it proved to be an attention-getting color palette for the season. While purple is one of those hues that looks great on everyone, it's understandable that you wouldn't want to go head-to-toe Grimace (ed note: we love Grimace). Get in on the trend in small doses with a pretty purple silk top, or a printed skirt that incorporates the color — then pair it with your favorite black basics. To get you started, we've rounded up 13 purple pieces that are sure to make you stand out this season.
