Lavender is my new pink. I’ve been wearing this sweater almost every other day. And in order to make sure people don’t immediately realize I’ve just been wearing this piece on repeat, I’ve tried to style it differently every time I wear it. Read on to see how I’ve maximized this piece:
The first look I put together was a head-to-toe lavender outfit! I layered a camel coat over for extra warmth and went for cobalt blue booties for a pop of color. Quite frankly, you can never go wrong with monochrome.
MIX UP THE TEXTURE
I like mixing up different textures because I always find that it makes an outfit more interesting! So in one of the outfits, I wore it with a blue velvet suit from & Other Stories. I thought the cool tones go really well together. In the other outfit, I wore the cashmere sweater over a ivory midi silk skirt from Maggie Wu Studio. It’s interesting how texture play such a big role in creating a certain mood; while the velvet suit toughened up the soft sweater for a more powerful feel, the silk added a touch of romance and femininity.
WEAR IT AS AN UNDER LAYER
For the extra cold days, wear the turtleneck under another sweater and get double layers! I did this a few times, and really liked being warm but looking stylish at the same time. You can also layer this sweater under cami dresses to put summer pieces back in use this winter!
Extend the Pastel Family
If monochrome is too much for you, try styling the lavender sweater with another pastel color. Because I have a lot of soft pink pieces, that was what I went for. But I think the lavender would really go well with baby blue, mint, as well as a light yellow color, too.
