Macaroon mood of violets and pinks

After a life-long aversion of pale violet , a colour I always associated with Milka Chocolate wrappers and pale and un-interesting bridesmaid dresses, I recently bit my tongue when I discovered that it can become an interesting base colour for summer.

Worn with a highly contrasting shade of coral pink and a layered tribal necklace infused with modern shades of bright pinks and neons by Assad Mounsser , violet turned out to be a tamer base colour against these highly-charged shades.

The second interesting way to wear violet is tone-on-tone with a different shade of Magenta YSL shoes and a candy-pink box shoulder-bag from Topshop. The overall effect, although modern in its approach is highly reminiscent of a Macaroon line-up at La Duree.

The big lesson here is to never say never, especially when it comes to fashion…
