Pale purple is any purple color that is light but not bright. This indicates a purple that has been both shaded with black and tinted with white. Pale purples are often based on natural purples such as purple lavender, orchids and and lilacs. All three of these are more typically a darker, brighter purple but also have pale variations. Another well known pale purple is mauve, the first synthetic color that was extremely fashionable in the 19th century, particularly the 1890s. The following are common types of pale purple.
