According to Vogue, the Top 10 color trends for spring include neutrals such as white and military green, richer tones such as tomato red and chocolate brown, brights including rainslicker yellow and ultra violet, plus icy pastels such as pale green, sky blue, and rose. I love all of these shades, but this spring, I will also be wearing lavender!
A distilled down variation of ultra violet, lavender is a color that is universally flattering for all complexions and coloring. Blonds, brunettes and redheads all look lovely in this pretty pastel. (For clarification, lilac is a pale purple with a pinkish tinge, and lavender has a more bluish cast.)
And, wearing lavender is easy. Pair it with white for a very feminine look. Or, use black as a foil, for an edgier vibe. Add just one piece (a jacket, a scarf, a handbag) for an instant update of last year’s favorite look. Or, go for broke with a head-to-toe, monochromatic ensemble!
I’ve showcased a few of my favorite pieces, above. But, you can find lavender tops, skirts, dresses, and accessories at every major department and specialty store.
