Moving Over Pinks, We’re Having a Love Affair With Lilac
For several years, lilac has been the color of doomed hotels, Elizabeth Taylor’s eyes and Yardley’s packaging. But after decades of grey governance and a few years of millennial-pink madness, both lilac and lavender (that slightly grayer herbal hue) are clearly having a bit of a moment!
Well, there is no denying that we have forever had a love-hate relationship with the shade. But gone are those days. Today lilac is considered to be one of the prettiest shades of the pastel colour palette. Take cues from our very own desi girl, Priyanka Chopra who rocked in an elegant Vivienne Westwood lilac skirt suit with utmost panache for Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding, followed by Ranveer Singh donning an all lavender suit for one of his public appearances recently. Shraddha Kapoor also followed suit as she stood out amidst a range of golden girls at the recently held Ambani bash in Mumbai.
So, while it may not be as bright like amethyst or as chic like mauve, but lilac seems to have a good balance between watery pastels and deeper jewel undertones. To cut the long story short, the auburn stepchild of the purple family definitely seems to have caught on to us as well. Take a look!
