A knee-length, eggplant-colored shirtdress and heels are a classic combination that effortlessly takes you from work to play. Show off your fabulous fashion sense with deep purple shirtdress that is one-half casual and one-half glamorous. The vintage-inspired frocks typically feature button-down fronts and built-in belts that nip in your waistline. You can pair the versatile, figure-flattering dress with a variety of heels for a polished look.

Nude Pumps

The secret to legs that appear to go on forever is nude-colored pumps. The high heels look both sexy and classy at once and pair famously with an eggplant-hued shirtdress. Since the dress stops at your knees, the nude shoes create the illusion of long legs from the knee down. Nude heels look luxe when combined with the rich purple dress.

Strappy Gold Sandals

Strappy gold sandals elevate a purple shirtdress from basic to glamorous. The gold and purple colors combine to create an enchanting, flirty look. Slip into a pair of high-heeled gold sandals featuring delicate ankle straps when you want to turn heads at a holiday party, reception or any other special event.

Kitten Heels

Although kitten heels are a bit shorter than traditional heels, they still pack a fashion punch. The heels are ideal for when you want to dance the night away in comfort. The slight heels flatter your legs and add a touch of elegance to the shirtdress. For a monochromatic style, slip on a pair of eggplant-colored kitten heels or stick with basic black for a look that transcends trends.

Heeled Boots

A simple, stylish way to transition a purple shirtdress from summer to fall is with knee-high, heeled boots. The classic look is appropriate for the office as well as date night with your significant other. As long as the boots are a neutral color, such as tan, black or grey, they'll complement the eggplant-hued dress.
