Full Answer

Because purple is a strong color, variations on yellow, such as yellow-white ivories and soft yellow-green complement purple without being garish. Pink is next to purple on the color wheel and works well as an accent to purple in both home decorating and clothing applications. Purple's association with royalty makes it a natural complement to gold and silver for a rich, elegant feel. Bright purple clothing items pair best with neutral shades to avoid excessive busyness in an outfit.
