The deep purple shade of the plum color is an almost perfect representation of the color of the plum fruit. As a part of the quaternary color, the plum shade is a combination of russet and slate which are both tertiary colors.

The color comes in pale and Persian shades. The pale shade is a more toned down version of the actual plum color. Alternatively, the Persian shade was originally known as prune because it resembles the average shade of prunes.

The color plum comes in shades from light to dark, so generally there is always a shade of plum for everyone. All that is needed is to decide which shade fits your skin tone, eye and hair color best.

A plum color looks good in an above the knee style of dress with a stylish sleeveless or short sleeves top. A dark plum hue dress with round or V-neck style gives a formal look. Bridesmaids can have a choice to pair the dress with a cardigan or any dark colored jacket to cover their shoulders. They can also add a scarf in bright color to give the overall appearance a lighter touch.

For a touch of glamor, use dark colored shoes such as high heels or a diamond encrusted for a little sparkle. Do not make the mistake of wearing matching shoes, flats or sandals with your plum gown.

Adding Jewelry with a Plum Bridesmaid Dress

When it comes to jewelry, the choice will largely depend on the style and design of a dress and the type of wedding to which it will be worn.

Use minimum colored stones and stick to neutral colors.
