Purple is a bit like marmite—you either love it or hate it. It can be a tricky colour to pull off and might be considered too bold for some who are unsure whether it suits them or don’t want to risk looking like Barney the Dinosaur (no offence to the beloved children’s show character). With that being said, you might want to consider giving a more subtle hue within the purple family a go: lilac.
Lilac is super flattering and was hugely popular in the late 90s til early noughties. I mean, who can seriously forget about Lil’ Kim’s one-sleeve lilac jumpsuit at the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in 1999? In this era, the sweet shade has made a comeback in the fashion scene and we’re (totally) here for it. Which is why we’ve put together 15 lilac pieces to brighten up your day and your wardrobe. Because let’s face it, we could all use a little mood-booster right now.
