Instant Style – Lilac

Purple, the “color of kings” does indeed reign because it is all about sophistication and elegance.  When the color is lightened a few notches it gives off a romantic feeling, a quietly exotic appeal.

Navy

Why it Works: The rich burgundy shoes and navy bag gives the lilac dress a color block appeal.  The ’70s color scheme appears striking but the black long cardigan balances the overall look.

Lime

Why it Works: Floral is permitted in the fall. Flowers do grow in fall and winter, right? This blouse looks slightly futuristic thanks to the abstract hits of lime. Keep the feminine yet tough tension going with a wool blend pant and finish with a pump for a work look.

Olive Green

Why it works: Lilac + purple presents a monochromatic look. To warm up the purple color, add a dusty olive green heels.  These colors look great against light neutrals hence the sky blue clutch.Instant Style - Lilac
