Motivating, inventive and inspiring. By now, it’s no secret anymore that the Pantone Corporation named Ultraviolet as the color of the year 2018. Nevertheless, there would have been no better time for a purple inspired Trendy Tuesday post. As a matter of fact, the color not only reflects the current spirit of society but also one of the most popular trends for this spring season.
Let’s be honest, we are always busy and on the go. There may be some breaks in between all those appointments, Instagram updates and the whole media consumption. But when was the last time you reallytook a break? Personally speaking, I am not the best example here as well, so I am with you. 🙂 However, if everyone devotes himself to the same issues, it’s unsurprising that individual creativity becomes more and more restricted. To counteract this movement – also in a fashionable way – purple is the perfect color booster. Even in earlier times, the shade has been associated with mindfulness. Therefore, a purple outfit can remind you of releasing yourself from all the hypes in order to follow your intuition. In turn, this requires stepping out of your comfort zone from time to time. Eventually, this is one way to gain more inner freedom, which means more creativity.
Well, purple might not be a very widespread color in fashion – at least until this spring season. Thanks to the various interpretations of different designers, it has rapidly joined the top 10 of the color trends 2018. One simple reason for its popularity is definitely the versatility: The collections offer us the whole spectrum from soft lavender shades to deep night blue purple. While it’s more about breezy lilac tones at Michael Kors, Tibi or J.W. Anderson, designers like Miuccia Prada, Virgil Abloh at Off-White or Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen at The Row went for a more bold purple (which is similar to the actual ultraviolet). When it comes to the styling for an easy every-day look, let’s relate it to the thought about leaving your comfort zone. Maybe this means going for a lilac all-over look or maybe it’s just about adding in some accessories. In the end, it’s about integrating the color vibes into your spring wardrobe and especially into your spring mood.
