When I heard that Lilac Gray was one of the colors for spring, in addition to being delighted, my immediate thought was that there is already a color dress that perfectly conveys this mystical mix of gray and lilac - it's Donna Morgan's Grey Ridge, which is that same wonderful mix of gray warmed with a lavender cast. Depending on the light, and the accompanying accessories, this color will leave you asking - 'Is this gray or purple?' And it's both!
I love this color, because the lilac infusion warms up this gray undertones making this color a little more cheerful and easy to wear and pair with gold, bronze and other warm tones instead of just being limited to the silver family! The collage above is how I envision using this lilac gray color for your bridesmaids, and in your invitations, accessories for groomsmen, and even the bouquet! If you're looking for more contrast, this color is nearly a neutral, so nearly any metallic or pastel works and it also pairs well with soft greens, and even some orchid shades.
