Lovely Lavender: 5 Fresh Ways to Infuse It into Your Wardrobe Now

We all know the transformative benefits of lavender, especially during winter months when many rely on it to lift moods. As stylists, we think of it as the perfect cool weather pastel, providing an easy mid-winter boost for wardrobes too.

As one of spring’s hottest fashion colors, it is already showing in abundance throughout the retail landscape. Here are 5 fresh ways to start wearing it well now. Enjoy!

#1 Combine It with Red

Sitting next to each other on the color wheel, red and purple are quite harmonious when combined well. Lavender, with its softer shading than traditional purple, brings a more peaceful and calming vibe to naturally powerful red and can do the same for you!


#2 Mute It with Neutrals

Light, creamy neutrals always complement lavender well. For a new twist, try grounding it with camel, still a light neutral yet deeper and more earthy than cream and beige.


#3 Soften with Navy

Yes, lavender goes just fine with black but there is something about lavender that just wants to be paired with navy as its favorite dark neutral. Think lavender blouse with a navy blazer, lavender sweater with jeans or a lavender trench coat with navy underpinnings.


#4 Plant It with Florals

Perhaps lavender’s most natural place is among a sea of flowers. It’s in luck as florals continue to be a major trend that will likely continue into spring and summer. Coordinate your lavender-based florals with white and penny-colored accessories now through spring and watch them bloom!


#5 Use It As an Accent

Finally, choosing a signature color each season is an easy way to be able to coordinate it flawlessly in a wardrobe. Think bags, scarfs, shoes, coats and even shoelaces in this pretty color and you’ll have plenty of mix and match options.


Last Word

One of the favorite things we do as stylists is play with color, often introducing interesting combinations that you may never have thought of on your own but are in your wardrobe waiting to be introduced to one another.
