A symbol of royal grandeur, a representation of spirituality and an emblem of exotic beauty; are you wondering what am I talking about? Well, try to recollect the shade which used to color the robes of kings and queens and if you are still confused, let me give you some more hints- it is the color of a rich amethyst or even the exotic plum! Indeed it is the color “PURPLE.”
About the color purple:
Purple is a rich color which is often associated with sophistication, mysticism, creativity, mystery and luxury. Perhaps it is one of those rare gorgeous colors which combine spirituality with sensuality. A color, that is known to induce peace of mind and yet fill you with exotic charm, is often a favorite of adolescent girls, young sophisticated ladies and creative personalities. Now, that purple is a favorite color of many a woman like me, in this article, I would like to tell you of the top ten gorgeous purple things which every women should have.
Top 10 Purple Must-Haves For Women:
1. Purple Saree: Every Indian woman loves to drape herself in a gorgeous saree. What else can make her happier than a rich purple saree to make her look sophisticated, enigmatic, dignified and beautiful at the same time? Pick a purple saree, preferably in a single shade which has an elegant sheen of its own and pair it with pearls, white stones or silver jewellery to steal the show!

3. Purple Kurti: Conduct a poll on wardrobe must-haves and a “kurti” is something which will be a common answer, whether you ask a frivolous teenaged girl or a happily settled mother of two!
