Pantone really said it best with this one. I totally agree, Sweet Lilac is definitely a color for hopeless romantics, which makes it perfect for spring time and spring flings. This feminine, flirtatious pink is the perfect color for girly girls every where. Inspired by the flower of the same name, Sweet Lilac has a soothing effect that many people associate with calm feelings and relaxation. Make it fun and funky by teaming it up with Solar Power yellows and Tangerine Tango Oranges. Or you can play it cute and quaint by pairing this delicate pink with some beautiful Bellflower purple accents. Lots of suggestions in the post so keep reading after the cut!
