It is much easier to work out how to wear lilac once you start thinking of it as pink for grown-ups.
Lilac works best when there is a lot of it, and it is not too fussy. A lilac outfit, with clean lines and simple accessories, will look a great deal less old lady-ish and is straightforward way of making a wallflower colour more assertive.

Today featuring something for a chillier day….
Flowing coats are one of my favourite outerwear in-between the seasons. This JAEGER reversible herringbone wool coat has certainly got the air of casual insouciance and it weighs so little, it can be tossed over the shoulders like a shawl – I love its astonishing versatility and flattering fit.
Cloud-soft and lightweight, the double-faced grey wool coat is perfect for making an easy transition into a warmer season. Designed to a wrap-around silhouette with a waist-cinching belt, this chic piece is reversible – giving you two tones of grey- cloudy and slightly darker herringbone – to choose from.
I wore it with one of my favourite 3.1 Phillip Lim duo: Wool blend mini-skirt and chic grey jumper.
I love the structured look of this lilac white nylon shell skirt with contrasting flocked wool pattern throughout.
Fluffy lilac grid adds texture and gives the boxy-cut skirt a contemporary spin.
3.1 Phillip Lim Cash Only Terry Sweater is a cool statement piece for a laid-back style…
Slim-fitted heathered grey cotton sweater with ribbed round neck, cuffs and hemline, dropped shoulder seams and black raised ”CASH ONLY” textured lettering is a fun way to go about!
I accesorised with Jil Sander‘s sleek and sophisticated and roomy luxe appeal tote. This grape leather tote has been crafted in Italy with a green leather-lined interior and detachable shoulder strap, equipped with multiple pockets to keep your essentials in check, double top handles and protective feet. Complete with stamped branding and a top zip, your workwear looks will be given an instant lift.
This tote certainly offers an immaculate finish for all four seasons.
The final touches are JAEGER patent grey leather heels with a cute burgundy ribbon and pink sunglasses.
