My least favorite of all the colors. Not just the Fall 2012 Pantone colors. But of all the colors, this shade of purple is up there with my least favorite. I’ve never been very big on pastels, and I kind of find them to be puny, but I suppose there are people out there that like them and look good in them … I’m just not one of them. Okay that’s not totally true, I like pastels when they’re in the details, but I just can’t get used to the idea of myself in pastel all over. That’s all.
Anyway, if pastels are totally your thing, then you’re in luck! Because Rhapsody Lilac Purple is one of the colors that’s officially a part of the 2012 Pantone Colors for Fall. There are some plus size retailers who are using this shade of purple as the main color – not just an accent. In this post, I’m giving you the best of plus size “rhapsody.”
This duster coat by Simply Be has a nicely notched lapel going on. This piece is very simple, and it would look really nice with a brooch or a flower of some sort on the lapel. If you have a black obi belt, that would also look great cinching it in at the waist! It’s not cheap at $219, and it’s dry clean only!
I actually like pastel purple a lot better when it comes as an accent color. In fact, I would actually wear a pastel purple if it was mixed into a floral print like the one on this sleeveless blouse from New Look. The back of this blouse has cool lattice detailing, as well.
This is another floral print from New Look that brings in this Fall 2012 shade. This blouse has some sleeve to it, but not much. Lovedrobe often has pieces that fit me really, really well, particularly in button downs.
If you can wear lilac well, and the color works with your skin tone, then this blouse is a great option. It’s got a tie at the back of the waist, and it’ll really accentuate a lady like figure!
I would also wear this camisole under the million billion sheer pieces that I now own. I love a sweet little camisole – particularly if it has lace at the bust like those one does. Pretty, pretty pretty!
Are you into any of these pale lilac pieces? Do you wear pastels regularly? Stay tuned for the rest of the colors from the Fall 2012 Pantone Trends. I’ll be hunting down pieces in every shade.
