Let’s be honest—we’ve all had those days when, no matter how long we’ve been scavenging our closets, a fashion mind block has completely taken over. Frustrating, right? Well, we might just have a thing or two for you. Below, you’ll find a bunch of lilac dresses to get you looking lively with little to no effort!
Why lilac? Pantone’s official color of the year 2022 is Very Peri: a medium, cool periwinkle. Now, we know that it’s a bit of an intimidating shade to incorporate, which is why today’s focus would be its softer, easier-to-match cousin, lilac! The hue has also become trendy on social media, thanks to the immense popularity of Disney animation Encanto and its crowd-favorite character, animated it-girl Isabela Madrigal. Even Ayn Bernos couldn’t help but cop her iconic lilac frock!
Read on to see our top lilac picks, and you just might find your new OOTD savior!
