Post Update: The difference between Lilac and Lavender is Lilac is the light purple color with a pinkish hue, whereas Lavender is the light purple color with a bluish hue. Mystery Solved! Granted in the end it’s all purple..lol

I’ve rounded up various lilac items that can create a monochromatic look or that you can wear separately to inject the lilac trend into your wardrobe. Any one of these items would be a great addition to your closet.

In the past lilac wasn’t my first go to, but over this last month, I think I have worn lilac at least once or twice a week. Check out how I styled lilac for work here.

Style Tip –> What colors go with lilac?   Any neutrals like white, grey, black, tan or denim will allow you to ease into the color. Rock it with your favorite neutral it will make you feel more confident.

I bought my jacket at the end of summer last year for $25 from H&M and of course, now I can’t find a lavender bomber jacket to link in this post to save my life but I did find these cute lilac jackets:

Style Tip –> If you want to add lilac to your outfit but you are on the fence start off by adding accessories like sunglasses, earrings or a scarf.

Alternatively, you can wear something that is removable like a duster, a cardi, or a jacket. That way if it becomes too overwhelming it’s removable and you don’t have to wear it all day.

I picked these lavender jeans up at Marshalls a few years back.  You guys already know my love for colored jeans so that purchase was a no-brainer and Marshalls is one of my favorite stores for cute cheap finds!  I linked some pants below that are suitable for either a business or a casual look:
