Purple Trend Instagram Inspiration

Purple Trend Instagram Inspiration

Over the summer I was obsessed with yellow but this autumn purple has taken over and I cannot get enough of a lilac or lavender hue. Whenever I want to try a new trend but feel a bit daunted I go to Instagram to gather some inspiration and start planning outfits. I may not be Prince but I am definitely going to be laughing in the purple rain this winter.

Purple was the trend du jour back in Autumn/Winter 12-13 and it is set to happen again this year after we saw an abundance of the colour during London Fashion Week in February. From Christopher Kane’s hologram pleats to Mulberry’s lilac crochet, purple was everywhere.

Purple is most often used to communicate royalty, power, wealth and upward mobility but it also has a real innocence and 50’s into 60’s retro vibe when used with certain materials and silhouettes. A darker shade, perhaps in velvet, makes for a dramatic, regal and sumptuous winter look that is a great evening option.

It’s a difficult colour to pull off as a full look, I mean nobody wants to look like a berry, but when it works the colour really pops and is quirky and cheerful. Here are some of the folks I found rocking the shade on Instagram…
