Plum Ruffles on a Neutral Column

I love to build a column in black or in neutral colors and then add a pop of color. In this outfit I wore this adorable plum colored INC jacket that I have had for many years. I love this jacket so much because of the color but also the ruffled bell sleeves and other ruffle detail. I wasn't quite finished adding color to this outfit though so I added this amazing bag purchased several years ago at Nordstrom Rack. That last touch seems just right. 

Do you ever use the column trend to build an outfit? Any tips?

Thanks for stopping by!
