To get an all-Daphne look, a purple A-line knee-high dress is a must. The dress should have long sleeves and lilac stripes around the cuffs, waist, and hemline. Along with that, it is of utmost importance to wear the right shade of purple, which is dark purple or violet and indigo. Do not go for light or pale shades of purple, as it will deviate from the original look. 

Red Hair Wig

It's better to choose a wavy red wig, as it will complement the look perfectly. Moreover, you can make some variations to the length. You can wear a red hair wig a little longer than your shoulders or vice versa.
