Lilac Is Trending & We’re Having Major 90’s Nostalgia
With lilac popping up everywhere on our feeds and big retailer websites, we went down memory lane with the it color of the 90’s. It made iconic red carpet appearances (Lil Kim at MTV VMA’s) and was worn by all the 90’s cool girls. Fast forward two decades and lilac is having a big moment again. This time around, it’s off the runway and on the feed. We’re seeing our favourite models and influencers in pieces by Ulla Johnson, Staud and Alaïa to name a few and they work so well in the summer heat. The freshness and femininity of the colour is why we want a few pieces to nail the trend this summer. You can shop fabulous pieces too by heading to the end of the blog where you’ll find lilac pieces linked.
Why we chose what we chose? The Gaelle skirt by Ulla Johnson is cascading ruffles done right. We loved it’s uniqueness and the fact that the lilac color coupled with the texture and design of the fabric really make it a remarkable piece to invest in.
The polished leather Staud Scotty bag is more young, fun and edgy. It’s also a flashback into the early 2000’s when small shoulder bags dominated. We think adding this fun piece to your casual looks will really make a difference.
One brand that always strikes the right note is Tory Burch. They just know what women want! Naturally, when we saw their button down sundress in Lilac, we had to have it featured here! It’s perfect for a fun day out, picnics, beaches, gatherings. You can build up the look with your accessories according to the situation. E.g add a wide brimmed straw/raffia hat for a day out or PVC sandals and fine accessories for lunch with the girls. It’s a winner in everywhere.
The Alaïa suede sandals are instantly identifiable because of their design and the dusty lilac shade. If you’re one for experimenting and enhancing your wardrobe portfolio, we suggest these beauties. All pieces are linked below so you can stay ahead of trends and nail each look! Happy shopping x
