Acai

Looking to update your closet for a new season? Start by switching up your color palette. We're sharing outfit inspiration around some of the gorgeous hues from Pantone's fall color report for 2013. This week it's all about elegant Acai.

Switch things up this fall by adding a few items to your closet in one of the season's hottest hues: Acai. This soft violet-plum is elegant but also bright enough to offer a sense of fun to any outfit. Not sure where to start? We've put together three outfits in this fabulous shade of purple.

Out on the town

Turn heads at the next social event you attend with the help of a dress that's both sexy and sophisticated. Add some classic platform pumps, an embellished bag (we like studs) and an elegant pair of drop earrings. The result: A look that's pretty and polished without trying too hard.

Open back long sleeve dress (stylebop.com, $255), patent platform pumps (neimanmarcus.com, $112), studded clutch bag (farfetch.com, $282), Kenneth Jay Lane gold drop earrings (net-a-porter.com, $55)

Casually chic

Comfort doesn't have to mean overly casual (no sweat pants here). You can easily pull together a look that feels great, but that looks fabulous, too. Start with a long tank top in our new favorite hue and pair it with gray skinny jeans (gray and purple are a match made in style heaven) and finish off the look with a long blazer and flat riding boots.

Long round neck tank top (yoox.com, $100), skinny grey jeans (allsaints.com, $145),
double breasted long blazer (mango.com, $70), tall riding boots (nordstrom.com, $133)
