I have never been a particularly big fan of pastels—they always feel like colors that only small children should wear to me. But lately I’m seeing lavender show up on really chic pieces, like this super-spiff jacket from & Other Stories, and it’s causing me to have a bit of a rethink.
I dig the contrasting stripes on this button-down from Ayr, and the oversize cut too.
I like how the lavender on this Madewell sweatshirt has undertones of grey—I feel like that’d make it easier to wear.
A nice slouchy striped long-sleeve tee for layering under V-neck sweaters, hoodies, whatever.
A slightly cropped cardigan that would be perfect layered over a flowy dress.
Not sure I can resist this super-glam faux fur jacket
If you are a white person, you are doomed to flesh-colored bras the color of Band-Aids, which is indeed a first-world problem but also isn’t too sexy. I was once tipped off by a fashion editor to the fact that a lavender bra like this one can sub in for (caucasian) flesh-colored quite nicely. It also comes with these pretty matching briefs.
I’ve been wanting a short-sleeved sweatshirt for some time now—it’d be great for layering—and this one is very nearly perfect.
And why not a Fjallraven backpack in lavender, I ask you?
A cute cropped tee from ATM that’s currently nicely marked down.
A collarless denim jacket that’d be great for the warmer weather that will get here eventually.
Also good for warmer weather: this sweet terry cloth bucket hat.
A nice cotton button down like this would really pop when paired with black jeans.
And finally: if you’re tempted by lavender but also slightly scared of it, this merino scarf would be a good starter piece.
