Lilac is having a bit of a hot moment right now. The pastel shade is not only perfect for spring, but it swerves the cutesy-ness of pastel pink and instead adds an unexpected, cooler edge to an outfit.
Which explains why influencers are loving a particular lilac-hued two-piece suit from Primark right now.
As we return to the office en masse this year, a strong trend for vibrantly block-coloured trouser suits has shone through, and this well-priced Primark choice is perfect for ticking that trend box. The on-trend jacket is slightly oversized in cut, white the trousers feature front pleats, a high waist and a long length, which makes for a super flattering, elongated look.
Influencers including @soumiaelj, @sarahrroberts_, @sincerelyoghosa and @journeywithjanet_ have all been spotted sporting the pastel-toned suit on the ‘gram, and they’re all showing us a different way to wear it, proving how versatile a look this really is.
You can wear it with a plain white tee and box-fresh white trainers for a casual, dressed-down look, but simply add colour-clashing statement heels and chunky jewellery and you’ve got a classy evening outfit in an instant – this Primark suit is a seriously hard-working wardrobe staple.
Lilac looks particularly chic when teamed with white, which is why three out of four them opted to accessorise their Primark suit with a white handbag (white accessories are another big trend for the season ahead).
With the jacket priced at £20 and the trousers at £15, this is a seriously budget-friendly office look that can just as easily translate for the evening.
As always, you’ll have to head to your closest Primark store to see if they have it in stock. But the good news is that Primark is due to launch an online stock checker on its website very soon, which will make shopping with one of our favourite brands so much easier.
