Spring trends: lavender

As I mentioned last week, I've never been a a big fan of lavender...until now. It's the color that's everywhere this spring, in varying warm and cool tones. with all kinds of different finishes, patterns, and textures. I hate to say that there's something for everyone, but...there's literally something for everyone. Here are my favorite lavender pieces for spring.

1. This dress is part of the resurrected Marc Jacobs grunge collection, and my inner 14-year-old is here for it. I love the simplicity of it, especially the contrasting sleeves.
Marc Jacobs colorblocked dress $350

2. A friend of mine recently referred to Tibi as "CĂ©line Junior" and now that Phoebe Philo has left the building, Tibi has really taken up that mantle. These shoes are simple and understated, but the metallic lavender color is a little unexpected and fun too.
Tibi Scott sandals $495

3. An all-lavender suit might be a little too much, but this double-breasted blazer alone would look awesome with jeans and a tee, or even over a dress.
Jenny Park Hannah blazer $595

4. This one is cheating a bit, since there are shades of blush and marigold here too, but I'm in love with the watercolor effect, asymmetrical hem, and flattering midi length.
A.L.C. Sonali dip-dyed skirt $495

5. Just when you thought the Cult Gaia bag was over, they've brought it back in a bunch of fun colors (and bonus, this one is on sale).
Cult Gaia acrylic Ark bag $208.60 (on sale!)

6. Considering spring is still a work in progress in many parts of the country, this chunky-knit cardigan is very "wear now." The shape is classic, but the color feels so fresh.
Free People Bonfire cardigan $128

7. Remember a few years back when colored skinny jeans were all the rage? Perhaps those days are back? Either way, I like the richness of the color, and this high-rise cut is incredibly flattering.
Madewell garment-dyed skinny jeans $118

8.  Equipment makes the best silk shirts around, and when they come up with pretty prints like this, they're even harder to resist. I love how feminine this one is, without being overly girly.
Equipment printed silk shirt $280
