While black is typically our go-to color for winter, we’ve recently been enamored with the idea of assing some pops of color into our cold-weather closet. Maybe it’s due to all the amazing street style we spotted during New York Fashion Week, but suddenly  the idea of season filled with only neutrals seems kind of blah.

One of our top picks for adding hits of color? Regal royal purple, which is why we’re making it the next installment in our ROYGBIV Report series (named after the handy acronym for the sequence of hues in a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) in which we highlight fabulous finds in one chic shade. Royal purple—also known as eggplant—is dark enough to be a winter favorite, but still vibrant enough to liven things up a bit.

From a pair of sexy suede pumps to ladylike chiffon dress, we’ve compiled 10 royal purple pieces to suit every taste and price point, so browse through the gallery and shop away!
