Womanista Fashion: Periwinkle

One of my favorite colors to take from summer to fall is the gorgeous, lilac-hued blue that’s known as periwinkle. It’s a soft color that is still able to add a vibrant statement to any outfit. And since the tones are soft, it mixes well with neutrals and bold colors alike.

These jeans from Juicy Couture are fresh and bold and can easily transition into your fall wardrobe. Pair them with a white t-shirt, neutral studded belt, and bright flat sandals during the waning days of summer. Once the cool air sets in add a printed blouse, a tailored blazer, and neutral platform booties (I just bought this pair and I’m obsessed!) for a chic fall ensemble. You can pick up these skinnies from Net-A-Porter for $160.



This stunning bag from Jil Sander will add the perfect pop of periwinkle to your outfit! It mixes with a laid-back ensemble, an also adds some soft texture and color to office-appropriate wear. It’s an investment piece that will only get more gorgeous as it ages. Simply fabulous! You can pick this bag up at Net-A-Porter for $1,890


I can’t wait  for the weather to cool down so that I can rock this beautiful 360 cashmere sweater! You can layer it over printed jeans (which are literally everywhere this fall – I love these from Current/Elliott). To add more texture to this modern look, pair it with some studded heels and a rose gold cuff. It’s super-youthful, fun and put-together. You can buy this sweater at Traffic in Los Angeles, or online (from Traffic) at Farfetch.


To work the full periwinkle look, this fun dress is perfect for a night out for some champagne with a hot date. I love the 3/4 sleeve and low v-neck. It’s sexy and the fit is flattering. Pair this mini dress with a cropped motorcycle jacket and booties for fall, with a bold clutch and some stacked bracelets. You can pick it up from AKIRA for $44.

Happy periwinkle-wearing, womanistas!
