In lurrrve with lavender: The new millennial pink is here
Picks to get you into the shade of the season coming your way.
Looking ahead to what's in store 2018, purple is going to be major. Pantone has already named ultra violet as the colour of the year, but there are still other shades still to consider. One of the biggest trends we'll see is exactly that. Lavender—the shade many are calling the new millennial pink—is equally pretty and getting just as much buzz. Designers like Tom Ford, Tibi and Victoria Beckham have made big pushes for this cool colour, and we're all on board. Ready to shop it before all your friends do? Below, we've rounded-up 10 covetable pieces to add to your wardrobe right now.
Lavender for workwear is a thing, and this look is all the proof you need. Go for a tailored pair like these, top off with black for contrast and to harmonize the whole thing, your favourite white and black print shoe.
