- Pressed Rose
Princess to the core, and light as air, Pressed Rose can encompass all of the shameless femininity which was so iconic on the runways. This precious pastel pink holds a touch of warmth, especially when compared to Sweet Lilac – its sibling.
Marc Jacobs’ spring collection was replete with feminine opulence and childish luxury, so this color is shown up both in merengue dresses and in spring accessories. The same notes also apply to the more over-the-top feminine collection which was presented at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.
This color trend even made an appearance on more subdued runways such as Oscar de la Renta, Pyer Moss, and Prada.
- Sweet Lilac
Sweet Lilac – baby pink – has a touch of lavender, that makes it become one of the coolest color options in the spring/ summer 2019 trends. It is a gentle color which is feminine but not sickly sweet. On this season, designers used it in both minimalist, sleek designs and some girlish creations.
Valentino brought the ultimate dress in Sweet Lilac: a simple dress with puffy sleeves, a voluminous skirt, combined with a straw hat to create a rustic look which avoided being melodramatic or sentimental. At Rodarte, Sweet Lilac was the color choice for dresses overflowing with lace, tulle, and ruffles.
There was also a lot of Sweet Lilac on Chanel’s runway because the pastel shade works well with its iconic tweed.
- Light Lavender
Light Lavender is another pastel which appears in the spring/ summer 2019 color trends. It is a cool shade working well with softer yellows, or a deep neutral like Brown Granite or Eclipse. This shade showed up most beautifully in a wrap dress by Kate Spade New York, where it was paired with matching headdress and boots.
It was also used for a not so hyper-feminine option at Marc Jacobs – a combination between boyish blazer and shorts, matched with a large bow around the neck.
