How To Wear The Color Of The Season

Share

We’ve been sweet on lilac since its emergence on the spring and summer runways—it’s the it color of the season. While pretty as can be, the pastel shade can be tricky to pull off without feeling overly precious. By now, your light purple interest is likely piqued, so we’ve come up with three easy-to-wear outfits centered around the gorgeous hue. Whether you’re in the mood for a skirt, dress or trouser look, ahead, we show you how to wear lilac like a pro.

Look Good In Lilac

This off-the-shoulder crop top radiates bohemian-cool. A white denim skirt lends structure to the frilled silhouette while lace-up espadrilles and a straw bag ensure a summer-fresh finish.
