After ultraviolet was declared Pantone’s color of the year in 2018, all shades of purple had a filled day in the fashion industry and there are no signs of early departure. So when we refer to the color lilac in this article, just think of all the imaginable variations of lilac. 

Lilac is a light purple color with a pink tint that applies to the color of the flower of the same name. This color is not one that should be left in the closet for springtime looks alone as it can be worked into your wardrobe all seasons long.

Going back to our primary colors, purple is a shade gotten when you mixed red and blue. PS: If you ever mixed red and blue inks together in elementary / primary school, then you can definitely relate! This then means that the range of hues belonging to the purple family are endless, especially when you begin to add a little bit of black or white to it. The more white you add to purple, the closer you are to getting the color lilac!

From the psychology of lilac, the color encourages emotional expression. It is also believed to help reduce aggression and anti-social behavior. Lilac can also increase energy and encourage playfulness while avoiding confrontations. The uniqueness of the color implies a willingness to stand out and go against the crowd. So if you’re looking to stand out and add some pizazz to your style, then it’s time to think lilac!

Style tip:

Not everyone can easily style their lilac outfits. However, the trick is to start with the minutiae. You can gradually build up from lilac accessories and then graduate with a monochrome lilac look.
