Purple, lavender, lilac, periwinkle, whatever you want to call it, this is the colour the fashion pack can’t get enough of this season (FYI we’re calling it lilac). However, despite how effortlessly cool it looks, this particular shade can be quite fickle. So, how can you add lilac to your existing colour palette even if you’re a neutral Nancy? To give you some inspo, we’ve found the chicest lilac looks on the ‘net and where to get this spring-ready shade.
But how to combine this fantastic color palette to be super cool? To be daring in a total look for the bravest, but also perfect with white and black for a minimal chic look, with pearl gray, with beige for sophisticated outfits, with animal prints for gritty looks and many more, all to be invented for true fashionistas.
Head to toe hues
Not for the faint-heart, a full lilac look looks stunning when it’s pulled off confidently. That’s the key, confidence. A lilac mini dress like this one is the perfect way to get your pins out and wear purple all at the same time. However, as a pink under-toned lass myself (read: almost translucent), any fellow pale girls might want to do a very light tan first. Lilac can be a little unforgiving on your undertone.

There’s no rule that says you have to add a pop of lilac to your look in a block coloured dress, top or skirt. In fact, if you’re new to experimenting with colour but you’re already a print fiend, a lilac-forward floral is the way to go.
Our fave florals:
- The World Is Ours Dress In Lilac Floral
- Sun Kisses Top In Lilac Floral (psst, this one is on sale RN)
If florals aren’t exactly your thing, no judgement, a fun lilac polka dot is just as cute. Prints are a great way to break up the amount of colour in your outfit, especially if you’re going to pair it with neutrals. In particular lilac suits beiges, camels and off-white shades.
Perfect printed pieces:
- Little Mistake Skirt In Lavender Print
- Out In The Moonlight Dress In Lilac Spot (psst, this one is on sale too)
Suitable for both day and night lilac really is your best ally for all day long looks.
