Yesterday, I cleaned the drawers where I keep my scarves. I was carefully folding the scarves when I noticed that the ones which I hold special are either in lavender or has a lavender in their print. This shade is close to purple but lighter. I know that I like purple, as you can see on the theme of this blog, and even the swivel chair which I sit on each day when I blog is also purple, but I didn´t immediately notice that I have a special spot in my heart for lavender. I think lavender, as a color, is beautiful.
But I also believe that if you overdo lavender, it can make you look matronly. Its beauty really shines out if you only sprinkle it in your wardrobe. Here are six lavender looks I´d like to wear this summer. Let me know what you think of them through a comment below this post.
Lavender Dusk Fade Dress
Tank, Denim Shorts, Sunglasses, Bag, Pumps
Shine bright like a sweet lavender in the street with this amazing lavender chiffon crop tank which is made trendy in ruffle detailing. A pair of tattered or cut-off denim shorts will toughen the tank´s sweetness while a long maxi skirt will complement its femininity. Finish off with nude leather ankle strapped sandals that are so cool they´re named Bond Pumps. I know I´m making it really fabulous but if you can afford it, add leopard sunglasses too.
Sweet Lavender Romper
Romper, Bag, Sunglasses, Wedge
Cute jumpers and rompers are the highlights of summer. But if you got a chance to bring home a lavender romper with cutout designs, you´re lucky because you can´t find it just anywhere. Go for a sensational summer look with this amazing lavender romper teamed with white flats.
Lavender Dusk Fade Dress
Dress, Sunglasses, Lace Up Boot
A couple of weeks back, I spoke about how to wear a purple dress. All the looks included in that post are either party looks or outfits you´d wear to special events such as weddings. But when it comes to how to wear a purple dress, given that the dress in question is an insanely cool lavender chiffon shift dress which features ombre detailing and a keyhole cutout at back, I´d be willing to step outside my comfort zone. I´d wear this Dusk Fade Dress with edgy, white lace up ankle boots.
Color block Lavender Dream Shirtdress
Shirtdress, Sunglasses, Flats
Here´s a color block, flowy sheer chiffon shirtdress which half lies between the borderline of lavender and purple. But I like its super cute look. Accessorized with a light pink or beige clutch and white strappy flats, you have a look that´s really vogue. Put on a mint or blue sunglasses to complete the statement.
Lavender Lace Party Dress
Dress, Clutch, Pump
If you´re wondering what color of shoes to wear with a lavender party dress, I´d say the safest is white. I like the fit and flare style of this dress and its lace upper half, emphasis on the sheer crochet lace of its back, is something that snags the style.
Lavender Mini Skirt
Skirt, Jacket, Ankle boot
A sweet girl meets rider, that´s what this look is about. Team this charming ruffled lavender mini skirt with a white top and pull together with an ivory moto jacket. A pair of acid trip pointed toe ankle boots which features quartz print in shades of purple and sky blue, will only make things truly interesting.
Now it´s your turn … simply answer this question, how to wear lavender?
