We're calling it: Lavender is the It color of 2018. Sorry millennial pink, but with pale purple appearances on Spring '18 runways from Tom Ford, Tibi, and Victoria Beckham (to name a few), it's hard to ignore the pastel-adjacent takeover. Lavender even has the Rihanna seal of approval, along with Black Panther lead Lupita Nyong'o and Grown-ish rising star Yara Shahidi rocking lilac gowns on the red carpet in full support of the lilac hue. What's not to love about a universally flattering shade that looks good with just about anything, with your favorite denim or a bold orange lip. If you're not ready to take on loud ultra-violet, then these lavender pieces are your in to one of 2018's top statement trends. Shop our fave lilac finds from athleisure essentials and spring maxi dresses all the way to standout shoes and boxy suit jackets.

Picture your perfect pair of 5-inch heels and how easily it is to walk around all day in them, running from errand to errand. Yeah, we can't imagine that either. We’re taking it down an inch, or four, with the latest craze: low, mid, and kitten heels. Don’t get it twisted, we love our high-heeled leg lengtheners, but strutting from place to place at a snail’s pace isn’t practical for a girl on the go.
