There are many lovely shades to purple and one of our favorites right now is lavender. A lavender dress is such a cute way to dress for summer. And there are so many options around. Follow Kelly Osbourne’s lead and opt for something quite smart and formal, fitted and floor length with a figure hugging shimmer. Or check out Diane Kruger’s crisp sleeveless lilac tunic, the perfect thing for a summer evening outdoors. Alternatively, we can look for something more frothy and feminine with plenty of chiffon. A lavender dress is ideal teamed up with a lightweight jacket or cardigan in pastel shades and a pair of kitten heels.
