Lilac is such a dreamy shade, especially for the spring and summer months! The airy, wistfulness of the color is perfect for warm weather dressing, incorporating into your beauty routine, and playing with around the home. More and more recently I’ve noticed lavender, lilac, and orchid hues coming into fashion all at once and honestly, I’m loving it. I’m obsessed with all of the different pairings to be made with lilac — from rich mustards and gold for high-impact contrast all the way to earthy tan shades.

Do you have a favorite version of the color? Keep scrolling for a few of mine.
