Violet is the color of artists, lunatics and anyone else, who simply dares. Or perhaps what fashion is trying to tell us is that the time has come for us to cross the line and that violet is the color that will accompany us on this maiden voyage. I’ve already written about the fact that ultra violet was pronounced color of 2018, but how do we wear it? Since the warm season is upon us, I assure you we will have no trouble! Violet is a very interesting color that complements great with animal print, white, gold, powder, navy and denim, and above all, it encompasses series of shades from lilac (or wisteria) to the dark violet shade that totally rocks. Where do you see yourself? I know that my soul is more on the lilac side, but I could try out something darker now and then, why not.
Opt for small and mini bags, you won’t regret it. There are shoes and sandals, sneakers and belts, mostly narrow ones. Small details will put the icing on the cake. I’m looking for new pumps and I love the idea of trying out something different that will also go with denim, because I spend a lot of time wearing jeans. Don’t forget about sneakers, because by now, all the fashion-aware brands have their own purple model.
Coats, jackets, and blazers
Spring-time pieces can be lighter, such as a light bomber jacket, a blazer, or a leather jacket, and ultra violet color prevails. Suits, as do jackets and pants, look gorgeously fresh in pastel shades. For a wonderful Boho inspiration, I have to add a Luisa Beccaria style maxi dress, perhaps even with floral patterns.
Pants and skirts
High waist pants, sexy pencil skirts or wider midi skirts; style these pieces with a white blouse, a sweater in powdery or a contrasting color, yellow for example. It may seem too daring at first sight, but it actually works, because we get to experiment more in the summer and have even more fun. Color blocking is still in the air!
Pay attention to your lips and mind the shades of lipstick, because violet can be difficult to handle. But it’s great on the eyes and it suits every woman; opt for a lighter shade on the inner side of the eye and darker on the outside. Adding a touch of silver is a must, it brightens up the entire look. The edges of eye shadows have to be blended to perfection.
