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.
