For someone whose wardrobe leans heavily on neutrals, black and white, just introducing one surprise element is enough to make an impact. In a previous post, I mentioned splurging last year on a lavender bag. It’s been interesting to see how the unexpected shade not only works with much of what I already own but also kicks up the look by at least a few notches. Granted, I’d be just as pleased wearing a black, brown or white bag with the above, but the light purple makes a quiet statement for pushing the boundaries with a little creativity. Also worth noting…lavender acts as a fantastic year round color. It’s stunning with white, chic with grey or brown, and plays off the blues in denim beautifully.
I also like these knit dresses and pastel (LOVE coral!) bags:
