Lilac is the Next "It" Color

We all know that pastel is here to stay. Trends rarely fade nowadays. They just get layered on top of each other and morph into something else.

Usually for the better as the combo product embodies the best of both worlds.

But today I want to talk about a particular color. This is of course my own assumption. I am going to call it anyway and you heard it here first. Lilac is going to be the next "it" color.

Like oxblood, forest green and mint or seafoam have taken the street fashion world by storm; lilac is next.

The pastel purple is oh so irresistibly charming. It has shown up in nail colour and lip colour. It's just a matter of time before it will show up everywhere else.

Here are some of my favourite lilac items and where to get them.

For that casual summer afternoon, this Pins And Needles Silky Surplice Tulip Dress from Urban Outfitters is perfect.

Lilac looks amazing against sun kissed skin.

The next item has a distinct hobo flare. This fun and flirty Jen's Pirate Booty Goddess Long Dress in Lilac from TheTrendBoutique can be seen on Hollywood starlets and super models from the streets to the beach.

Finally, looking for that accent piece that gives the perfect injection of lilac without overwhelming with it? This Ravi Maxi Skirt in a mixed lilac color from NastyGal is just the thing. Dress it up, or dress it down, it's all up to you.

Finally, this is my very own lilac dress made of dreams. From Blaque Label, this Sweetheart Dress so beautiful, flowy and ethereal.

Look at the way it moves.
