Beautiful Ways to Wear The Trending Color Magenta

I’m having so much fun going through the trending colors of 2023! So far, I’ve done sage green, cobalt blue, and red-orange! Let’s keep going. Today I’m sharing beautiful ways to wear the trending color magenta!

This would be absolutely beautiful to wear to a fall or winter wedding with a pretty top. It’s a midi skirt with an elastic waistband and a slightly flared silhouette. It comes in other colors, but why would you want anything else? I decided to wear the skirt with a red-orange blouse for an unexpected color pairing.

I am such a fan of twisted front tops! The front tuck and half tuck are popular right now, but with a twist knot top, there’s no need. This is GORGEOUS. It’s actually a petite find, so if you’re long-limbed, keep that in mind. It was just too pretty to pass up.

A wrap dress is so flattering! It looks good on almost everyone but especially apple shapes. My sister bought this same dress in navy and wore it recently to a wedding to rave reviews. It also comes in another trending color – cobalt blue! This is a perfect style for those who hold their weight in the stomach area since the wrap and the ruching hide a lot of issues.

Blazers don’t have to be boring! This would look great paired with black pants and a black camisole. You’ve heard me talk many times about how creating a column of color can help you look taller and slimmer. This beauty is under $50 dollars!

Like the blazer above, a cardigan is a great way to add a pop of color. This is a great sweater if you want to be on trend but don’t want to invest a ton of money. The reviewers say it’s fairly thin and fitted, but hey, it’s only $29 dollars! I bought the cardigan, and I will say that it is fitted, but not that thin.

Wow! These are beautiful. I know that you’re not all going to want high heels, but for those of you who do, these would make a statement at your next event. I like a square toe, and the jeweled buckle reminds me of the shoe clips my mother used to display at her vintage fashion shows.

Of course, I have something for those of you who don’t wear heels! Ballet flats are IN, IN, IN this year. These leather slippers from JJill would be great with jeans, or dress, or a cute denim skirt.

A bag is a super easy way to incorporate a trending color into your wardrobe. I’d wear this with a great little black dress and hit the street, lol. It also comes in cobalt blue if you prefer. With a price of just $16 dollars, you can afford to get both!

I’m not going to lie – I LOVE this tote. It’s BRAHMIN, so not inexpensive, but it’s very unique. I love my classic brown Brahmin Finley Carryall handbag, but sometimes you need to make a statement!

A scarf is a great way to introduce color to your wardrobe! It’s inexpensive, and this color can brighten up any outfit. Jeans and a black sweater? Add the scarf! Black pants and a grey winter coat? Add the scarf!

Finally, how pretty are these earrings? I love big earrings that aren’t heavy, and the reviewers say that these, indeed, are not. When I mentioned adding a pop of color, this is the type of thing I imagine.

  3. Janice Nagle says:

    I have not added magenta to my wardrobe. when I do add a trending color, I try to find a lower priced item. I don’t want it to look cheap, however. you did a great job of finding the right mix! I was impressed by the inexpensive, but beautiful cardigan from Amazon. it seems like a magenta I could wear!

    1. Amazon has some very affordable options. Hope you enjoy it!

    I love the picture with your red chair. Do you live on the water? Sometime tell us more about your house and why you moved.

    1. No, I don’t live on the water. We moved because our home was in the flood zone, and they are buying us out.
