I have to admit, when the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year was announced, I was not jumping up and down for joy. I have never been a purple fan. I don’t even own one piece of clothing in that color. I blame it on too many young adult novels as a pre-teen where purple was associated with evil characters. But, as I’ve come to grips with the fact that I’m not a teenager anymore, I’m slowly getting onboard the purple train. More specifically, lilac. Soft, muted, pale violet-hued lilac.
The sense-pleasing shade of purple carries a vibe of innovation, luxury, and mystique, which for many of us feels like a breath of fresh air. I mean, listen to the way that sounds. 🙂 Who wouldn’t want to wear this color.
Lilac is one of those versatile and feminine hues that can vary, but also can be mixed with neutrals or warm tones to create a cohesive palette. Because I have found a new love for this color, I’ve created my ultimate lilac wish list (as one does) to share with you.
Have you jumped on this ultra imaginative color, yet?
Let me know what you guys think. Which one is your favorite.
