Weekly Wish List: A Splash of Lilac for Summer

Topshop Lilac Dress


A Throwback to ’90s Kate Moss

Button down skirt by Whistles | Lilac dress by Topshop | Rainbow sandals by Kurt Geiger (now on sale) | Wide leg trousers by Karen Millen | Satin slip dress by Theory | Rainbow earrings by Shashi | Soft-cup bra by Le Petit Trou | Shoulder bag by Gucci | Sunshine T-shirt by Oasis


How do you feel about the colour lilac? It’s been having a bit of a fashion moment, of late. And although I don’t own anything in a vivid, violet hue I’m on the look out for my first purchase (which, I’ll be honest, has mostly been motivated by the fact lilac really sets off a summer tan).

Topshop’s lilac midi dress has caught my eye, and I love the idea of wearing the silk number to a formal dinner with super-high heels. The design is cool in a Cate Blanchett/Tilda Swinton kind of way, don’t you think?

And – lilac hues aside – this week I’m also coveting Oasis’ sweet “Sunshine” T-shirt and Theory’s satin slip dress. The latter is very 1990’s Kate Moss, and is perfect for day (layered over a white tee or paired with a denim jacket) and night (accessorised with strappy sandals and delicate jewellery). How would you style it?

Which style buys are you coveting, this week? And have any of the items on my list caught your eye? Comment below to have your say…
