How to wear ultra violet this spring
It's certainly the season of pastel, but if there’s a standout shade it has to be Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2018, ultra violet. For Pantone, it’s a blue-based purple, but for the rest of us, it’s finding its way into our wardrobes in an array of tones and shades. And we love them all. New to this lilac hue? Let us guide you with our hero pieces to tap into the trendShop the edit
The violet solution to occasion season? Our flowing dress designs. Charming and feminine, they are everything a spring staple should be. We'll be wearing ours with vibrant accessories and statement jewellery. If you’re already on board with this palette, why not add a matching eyeshadow and manicure? The best part about these must-have dresses is that they can be worn again. Style them with sandals for garden parties or under neutral blazers for work.
If in doubt, accessorise
Still unsure? You don't need to dress head to toe in violet this spring. Instead, ease yourself into the trend with pastel shoes and handbags. Backpacks are the perfect style to revamp your workwear, whilst essential totes sit stylishly with tailoring. Looking for something more subtle? Treat yourself to a pretty purse or a leather cardholder for a weekday update.
The key to keeping this trend cool is to keep it simple. A plain lilac t-shirt paired with blue jeans makes the perfect off-duty outfit. Planning an evening out? Swap laid back tops for an embellished blouse and add your favorite heels. If you aren't ready to style this shade in public, why not try some lingerie? Our favourite brands are now releasing a host of pastels designs - this chemise just moved to the top of our wish list.
