For a workwear wardrobe makeover, look for a hyper-feminine pantsuit set like actor Jacqueline Fernandez. The soft shade will play its charm as you present a pitch in style. Close off with a pair of white pumps or loafers and your hair tied in a middle-parted low ponytail.

One can never go wrong in a sensual lavender monochrome dress like actor Mrunal Thakur’s, which is inarguably perfect for a staycation. Featuring a halter neckline for an oomph effect, ruched pattern and cinched waistline, it is a bona fide dreamy look.

For a last-minute date night look, a casual midi dress in the dusty pastel shade à la actor Malaika Arora will make a chic statement effortlessly. On a feminine note, opt for glossy lips, soft curls and glazed donut nails to finish it off. Let the thigh-high slit do all the talking as you walk around in ankle-strap heels.

PAINTING THE TOWN LAVENDER

A milestone birthday or event coming up? Look out for a sparkly one-shoulder dress in lavender like actor Sunny Leone for a main character fashion moment. Cap off the look with dangling diamond earrings and a pair of silver metallic pumps.

Beat the monsoon gloom by slipping into a mini lavender dress like actor Palak Tiwari. With a no-fuss silhouette and a pocket in the front, style it with a pair of transparent PVC gum boots for a lazy and functional brunch fit.

For an Indo-western route, take style cues from fashion creator Masoom Minawala Mehta and don a dhoti set in the cool-toned purple hue. Perfect for a sangeet event, the monochrome look consisting of an embellished cape over a bralette and dhoti pants will ensure you rank high on the elegance metre.

GET THE LAVENDER TREND RIGHT

  • When opting for a monochrome lavender fit, avoid colourblocking with bright hues and opt for neutral-toned accessories.
  • Silver and pearl accessories will further add to the romanticism of the shade.
  • Opt for ruffles, frills and A-line dresses in lavender for a timeless investment.
