Country escape? Relaxed wedding? Easy workwear? Go tonal by pairing 2 shades of lilac together. The pleated skirt is the newest shape for the season, so a lilac version will have you ticking off two trends at once. Gently tuck the coordinating cami into the waistband (you could opt for white if double lilac is too much) and then add a crisp white denim jacket. Gold sandals finish the look (and you could add heels if you want to take this from day to night).
Lilac looks good on all skin shades, so show some skin in a figure-loving shift dress. This dress has gentle pleating details around the hips and cut out detailing, giving it a stylish addition, ideal for the onslaught of wedding season. Keep accessories to a bare minimum here (a simple pair of earrings would be ample), and make sure your heels are high to show off those legs. An animal clutch bag will add a touch of elegance. Shrug a cropped jacket over your shoulders for when the sun goes down.
Slick separates make for an easy alternative to summer dresses. Try lilac on your legs with a pair of tapered trousers with tie detail (they look just as good dressed down with trainers and a sweater on the weekend), paired with a sharp ivory blazer. Give the look some drama with a black cami or blouse – this will make the blazer and trousers pop. Statement jewellery and accessories will polish the look off.
