Move aside Millennial Pink. Lavender is stepping in as the It color. Whether you make it the focal point of your outfit by going head-to-toe lavender or wear it with other colors (it compliments a wide array of colors, like pink, silver, and denim), it’s proven to look good in any form – suits, dresses, knits, shoes, just to name a few. I love that no matter how you wear it, it gives a fresh, ethereal feel and you can wear it year-round.
I chose to wear this lavender suit from Banana Republic for a light-hearted and feminine look. I haven’t worn or bought a suit in a long time, but I was drawn to this one because the color redefines the power suit, making it just as playful as it is powerful. The power suit has come a long way since the Melanie Griffith “Working Girl” days. From the iconic Chanel signature suit that was made to accommodate the lifestyle of the modern post-war woman to the creation of the pantsuit in 1932 when the number of women entering the workforce surged, women’s suits as we know them today evolved hand-in-hand with significant milestones for women throughout history.

In honor of International Women’s Day, let’s celebrate the achievements and strength of women, past and present!
