Millenial Pink has been dominating the high street since the summer of 2016 but it looks like a new hue is about to finally take over. Melodramatic Purple is a dreamy shade of lilac that we’re seeing more and more on the red carpet and our Instagram feeds.
The shade was named in honour of New Zealand songstress Lorde’s Melodrama after she wore a striking pastel purple Monique Lhuillier gown at the MTV Video Music Awards last year, and the colour perfectly matches the moody yet helpful tone of her second album.
Melodramatic Purple is the more delicate sister shade to UltraViolet, the official Pantone colour of 2018, and one we can’t wait to see infiltrate our wardrobes this summer. Scroll for some easy-to-style Melodramatic Purple pieces to snag this season.
Wide Leg Crop Trouser
Wide leg trousers are not only massively on trend, but they are comfortable, airy and light too making them the perfect pants for the heatwave we’re currently facing.
Athleisure style is here to stay and the perfect way to incorporate it into your summer wardrobe is to opt for that pastel purple. Pair it with a denim skirt or shorts for a day at the beach.
Statement sunnies are all the range at the moment, but if you’re not massively into the tiny ones sported by all the celebs, opt for this geometric colourful pair instead.
Heels like this can add sophistication to any look. Pair them with your favourite summer dress or midi skirt for an evening of cocktails.
Heading in the opposite direction, if you’re looking to make some of your favourite evening looks work for the office or a day out, pop these bargain friendly trainers on with any outfit for a casual yet chic style.
