Styling: Lilac

I’m currently trying to inject a little more colour into my outfits, having found from my previous ‘5 Outfits for 5 Days’ posts that my day-to-day looks tend not to stray far from the brown end of the colour spectrum. Not a fact I was unaware of, one I embraced even as I do love a neutral palette, however when seeing a weeks worth out outfits lined up next to each other in black or white (or brown as the case my be) it prompted me to re-introduce other shades, prints and patterns back into my wardrobe. Having only invested in a few new colourful pieces, I also re-discovered older pieces to bring back into my outfit circulation; notably those in purple tones.

Lilac has been a trend seemingly taking over from pink this AW. Featured on AW19 RTW catwalks by Kate Spade, Balmain and Tom Ford, the colour blocking approach is favoured.

Taking inspiration from street style and some of my favourite Instagram influencers I’ve curated some lilac looks for smart and casual occasions, which I will most definitely be wearing in the foreseeable future.

Inspiration from @slipintostyle and @annejohannsen
Lilac Matrix, just add glasses. A full leather look broken up with pastel lilac details and soft knitwear to ease the harshness of the outfit and give it a casual edge.
Lilac and turquoise dreams. Mermaid tones with wide leg trousers over leather boots, contrasting with a sheer organza shirt with a buckle detail complimented by the handle of a small shoulder bag.
Oversized lilac and white. Colour blocking a lilac midi skirt with a turtle neck top and adding white details to lift the look, swamp with an oversized padded coat for winter layering.

I hope you enjoyed this post
