It is not out of the ordinary to see pastel shades make an appearance during the spring/summer months. For 2019, lilac has been a strong contender in the pastel shade family, dominating runway collections and filtrating its way onto the high street and beyond.
Once labelled old fashioned and a colour often associated with a bedspread belonging to your grandparent’s, it is no surprise that this shade sparks fear in most people. It is time to set those fears aside and embrace the colour of year. A colour that has had a total transformation and is now classed chic, contemporary, and fashion forward.
If the head to toe lilac look is not for you, you could try pairing the shade with a modern denim piece to create a more subtle look. Just keep it cool , keep it casual, and if you’re looking to tone down the femininity, steer clear of frills, ruffles and over complicated silhouettes- you can’t go far wrong!
If you prefer to simply pay a little homage to the shade, incorporate it into your look via the use of accessories. Headwear, neckwear, footwear, handbags and nails; the choice is endless.
