Lavender Is Spring's Prettiest Trending Color — Shop Our Picks to Embrace the Sweet Hue
No, you're not imagining it — lavender is everywhere this year. Once relegated to Easter baskets and floral arrangements, this powder-purple shade has proven its versatility as a neutral that can practically be worn year-round. Lavender is most recognizable as the color of the herb of the same name, but for style purposes, the palette really ranges from the lightest lilac to vibrant violet.
Regardless of hue, this trend is all about tranquility and subtlety. It's a way to add color to your wardrobe without veering into the ostentatious. There are plenty of different ways to style this trend, such as a head-to-toe monochromatic look or colorblocking with black or white pieces. You can also work it into your accessories – a little shoulder bag or a pastel pair of heels – to pull together an otherwise understated outfit.
