Magical and refined: lavender is the flagship color of summer 2018

"The garments and must-have items of the moment are tinged with the evocative delicacy of lilac. Wear it and you'll immediately feel like a princess just out of a storybook."

Magnetic and romantic, the lavender color is peak for a great season. It is that particular nuance of violet declined in its pastel nuance, ideal for all those who want to be trendy but without exaggerating with contrasts.

On the one hand, in fact, the Ultra Violet was chosen as the color of the year by the American company Pantone, on the other hand, however, the delicate shades conquer because they are easily combinable. From casual outfits to more elegant outfits.

It all depends on which accessories you choose. You can turn your looks into hippy style with off-the-shoulder mini dresses - bare shoulders with Bardot neckline - or athleisure, in other words sporty with canvas pants and sneakers. Complete the outfit with a fanny pack, you will appear to have just emerged from the pages of a glossy magazine of the nineties.

Mini and Maxi Dresses

The lavender color has conquered the runways of the spring summer 2018 season and then has taken the place of the Pink Millennial. In other words, a pink tending to beige with hints of peach and salmon. But who is it really good for? In reality to all, especially those who do not fear to dare. Choose it in total look with short lace and off-the-shoulder dresses like Valentino, or long in viscose blend with body by Guess by Marciano. The first is suitable for summer evenings - combined with a pair of medium-heeled sandals for a bon ton style - the latter is perfect for a wedding with high-heeled jewel sandals. You can choose them tone over tone or in contrast with colors like yellow. Complete it with a small shoulder bag.

"The lavender nuance has conquered fashion houses and stylists. In its delicate shades it has literally played non-stop among the must-have dresses for spring like the one made by David Koma. Jeremy Scott for Moschino chose a short dress with silver sequins, while Bottega Veneta drew a fringed dress like the one worn by Emily Ratajkowski."

Skirts and trousers

"The violet, as we know, is the color generally attributed to art. Even the stars like David Bowie and Prince have loved it and are among the millennials' celebs like Ariana Grande and Rihanna. And with the floral maxi skirts you'll immediately feel a princess, while with the skinny pants model with low waist and the effect used you'll have an urban style look. You can combine them with high Converse of the same color or in contrasting pastel shades such as pink and blue. It is ideal with neutral shades like beige and white. And for a total look in lilac you can wear both skirts and lavender trousers with blouses embellished with rouches and pearls applications."

Lavender Bags

"For the summer of 2018 the accessories in pastel shades are a real must have. The bag is no exception, on the contrary it is a small masterpiece to show off even with the simplest outfits. In fact, it adds that extra touch that makes the difference.

In the lavender nuance then it is absolutely trendy. Choose it over the shoulder to follow the latest trends seen on high fashion runways. For example, the classic Mercer model by Michael Kors in leather. The minimalist and vintage-inspired tote-bag literally marries lavender color to become modern and even more stylish. It is truly timeless as well as being practical and comfortable. On the other hand, you know, fashion passes, but the style remains as stated by Coco Chanel. Another model to keep an eye on is the baby bag inspired by the Nineties like that of Zara. Icon of the Nineties, is back in a revised and correct version, and now goes even with the most elegant outfits.


Raise your hand if you've never had at least a pair of aviator-style sunglasses. The model that is impossible not to associate it with the ever on trend Ray-Ban. For the summer of 2018 they are dipped into the queen nuance of the year, the Ultra Violet: mysterious and at the same time decisive, refers to dreams and books of fairy tales. It is bright purple and most flamboyant, but a whole palette of soft colors like lavender has been put together. They never go out of fashion and then wink at the seventies like those worn by the daughters of flowers (and the stars who participated in the Coachella 2018 music festival). You will be immediately vintage and bohemian at the same time.

Watches and jewelry

Nobody can resist the charm of delicate colors like lavender, even the jewelry and watch designers. For this reason, in the collections of fashion brands that pay homage to the beautiful season there are color block accessories that you can combine with the same gradation, but you can even choose them as light points that brighten up your outfit and make it hyper feminine. An example? The Pandora necklace characterized by small purple buds on curly stems in bucolic style. It was created specifically for dresses with deep necklines. Wear it for special occasions like a wedding or a romantic dinner: your look will gain in sophistication." donnamoderna.com
