How To Wear Lilac This Autumn

How to wear lilac this Autumn

6 September, 2021

Although pastel shades are always popular in Spring and Summer, this Autumn we will see lilac bringing colour into the colder months. It will be everywhere, from blazers and jackets to trousers, skirts, dresses, blouses and even accessories. Discover the versatility of this colour and read the keys to combine it according to our Personal Shoppers.

Why is lilac the colour of the season?

Lilac evokes sweetness and freshness. Brands such as Alberta Ferretti and Chanel showed lilac tweed, blouses and suits to the catwalks. If you’re still not too sure about wearing lilac, but you’d still love to follow the trend, you can wear lilac in accessories. Remember that you’re in charge, and lilac will work in a total look or in small doses, you choose!

What colours go with lilac?

Sometimes, we like to stick to wearing bright colours with other more neutral shades such as white, black or beige. However, we’d like to bring you different ways to mix and match colours depending on your desire to take risks. Here are some ideas to wear lilac like a pro this Autumn:

As sweet as sugar: wear lilac and blue

Lilac and blue go perfectly together. You can choose a lilac top with light blue trousers for the right amount of sweetness in your outfit. You could also wear the top with your favourite jeans, a combination that is sure to be a hit! Finish off the look with a blue blazer if the day is a little cooler; white ankle boots will add the final flourish to a perfectly pastel look.

On-trend and sophisticated: mix lilac and green

At first glance, bottle green may not be the colour that comes to mind to wear with lilac. However, these two shades go very well together and look sophisticated and chic. Choose a lilac jumper and a bottle green pleated skirt, and finish off your outfit with a pair of black kitten heels for an elegant, contemporary and sophisticated look.

Trendy and happy: go for lilac and yellow

Lilac and yellow have been two of the colours of this Summer. They are complementary shades and create a balanced, contemporary contrast. Many insiders have opted to wear both shades together this season, both in clothes and accessories. If you want to join them this September, wear a pair of lilac skinny jeans with a printed shirt in the same shade and add the touch of colour with a yellow biker jacket. Choose the shade of yellow that best suits your skin tone and colouring: you could opt for a pastel shade or a more mustard tone – we promise you won’t go unnoticed!

Will lilac suit me?

If you don’t know what Season best represents you according to Colourimetry, now would be a good time to find out, because we would have different advice for you depending on your skin tone.

Lilac is a shade that especially suits Spring and Summer women. For both these colour schemes, wearing warm, soft, pastel tones such as lilac or lavender enhances their harmony. So if you see yourself as either of these two seasons, consider including a garment in this colour near your face (such as a top or jacket), you will see how it lights up your face. If not, you can include lilac in bottoms, such as a skirt or a pair of trousers, in accessories, or choose a tone more in line with your colouring.
