Lilac is the colour to be seen in thanks to Prabal Gurung and DKNY at New York Fashion Week but you don’t have to wait till next summer to rock the colour! Here are a few ideas how you can take lilac into winter…effortlessly!

(Image1) In the first outfit, it is suggested to team lilac with another pastel hue such as baby blue for lady-like glamour. Go for tweed to play with texture and give the outfit a more wintery feel. Delicateness is oozing thanks to the peep-toe boots with exquisite detailing and the pearl stud earrings. Perfect for work-related matters and drinks with the girls!

(Image2) Team a lilac jumpsuit with metallic accessories for after-dark glitz. Metallics are always a safe choice because they go with everything. Try playing up with colour to add more interest to an otherwise muted colour. Alternatively, toughen up this girly colour with black leather that it seems is here to stay. Take your pick from skater skirts to the classic leather pants and rock the style! Kudos for the ombre effect on the shirt.
