Lilac is having a moment RN – here are all the super chic looks we saw on Instagram

So this is a colour we’ll be wearing all summer.

Although it’s one of the beautiful pastel shades, undeservingly lilac usually doesn’t get all the attention. Until now, that is. 

Lilac is stepping into the summer season in a big way so it’s finally time to switch up your favourite pastel pink and blue for some romantic lavender shades. 

Lilac is romantic, yet striking.

The trend has been around a few seasons ago, and we can tell it’s not going anywhere next year too, so don’t be afraid to take the plunge and invest in a simple piece or whole look. Trust us, we would suggest buying something you can’t wear again. After all, we all need to be environmentally conscious while enjoying fashion. 

How to style a lilac outfit?

Lilac is a beautiful hue that is feminine, pretty and sophisticated all at once. It’s one of those colours that will effortlessly take you from day to night, work to party simply as it goes well with so many styles

There are a million ways you can dress up wearing this gorgeous shade, and here’s how fashion girls are doing it.

Top-to-bottom look

The bold way is to embrace lilac head-to-toe. Get that moment with a romantic dress, matching two-piece suit or simply pairing whatever you have in the shade. There are no rules here. 

Colour blocking

Immerse yourself into the colours because now is the right time! Okay, we mean colour block your violet piece with a vibrant palette starring yellow, blue, green and orange. Who wouldn’t love that eye-catching contrast!

Wear it with neutrals

On the contrary, you can’t go wrong if you choose a town-down version of the trend. Lilac beautifully complements neutrals so pair it with black, beige and white. Brightening up your basics this way is sophisticated and modern at the same time, plus it’s an easy look you can pull off any time.

It’s all about the accessories

Finally, go down the safe road. In other words, stick to the accessories, weather bags, shoes or other details. It’s an easy and effortless way to add a pop of colour to your wardrobe that always works.
