When I was younger, I was asked to be a flower girl or a bridesmaid a few times. At first, I thought it was an amazing honour, walking down the aisle, and sitting at a special table. But after a few rodeos the novelty wore off. The unpleasant interactions with Bridezilla and the horrendous dresses were the pits! I recall peach and lilac being the most prominent colour protagonists at the time. And guess what? These two colours have made their way onto the runway recently. And if Marc Jacobs likes them, then maybe it’s time for me to forgive, and give them another chance. Or should the grudge remain?
PEACH & LILAC FASHION ON THE RUNWAY
These peach and lilac/lavender garments were recently seen on international runways. Not too bad. Can we forgive and forget?
SHOP THE LOOK
Here are a few items to consider for the look. At times an accent of “80’s bridesmaid colour” will do just fine. A lilac mani or peach shoe. Other times you may want to be more adventurous and wear the colour head-to-toe or go metallic. No doubt more options will arrive in SA soon, be on the lookout.
