Windflower Wonder

Spring pastels come out to play as everything blooms in bright color around us. This year, one particular new hue feels especially seasonal and lovely to look at. Pale purple Windflower spreads its wings, bringing a color that feels fresh, feminine, and delicate yet plenty powerful.

Uniquely flattering in a cool-toned blushing lavender, Windflower compliments many other hues beautifully, creating a color story worth telling—and wearing—time and time again.

As the days get longer, the skirts get shorter. Newly available in the delicate yet impactful Windflower pigment, a mini skirt is the cutest warm-weather style around! The Hargen Tiered Skirt in Windflower features a mid-thigh cut with raw-edge details and a drawstring waistband. The layered tiered design adds texture and movement to the skirt, making her a fun option for a night out or a warm day. With hardware grommet details on the generous front pockets, Hargen gains an industrial edge that gives the skirt a hint of toughness and rebellion.

Style Hargen by balancing the feminine and edgy elements. Try pairing her with a simple top to keep the focus on the skirt and to prevent the final outfit from becoming too overwhelming. Add accessories that complement the hardware accents, like studded boots, a leather jacket, or a distressed denim
purse. Windflower Hargen makes for a versatile and eye-catching addition to your Spring and Summer wardrobe, allowing you to experiment with differing styles and express yourself to the utmost.

A classic XCVI piece, the mini Trace Skirt takes our classic ruching over to the sporty side. Ruched detailing throughout adds eye-catching definition to the skirt, while Windflower’s lavender hue gives a playful and girly pop of color. With a wide stretchy jersey waistband that accommodates every curve, Trace’s athletic element is enhanced through pairing her with a white or gray tee, sneakers, and a denim jacket for a casual—with a hint of tactical—look. You can also dress Trace up with a neutral-hued cropped knit, ankle boots, and some statement jewelry in shiny gold or brushed silver for a more elevated outfit.

We’re particularly partial to a tonal look, and pairing Windflower with more Windflower is totally a go. Try the cotton cocoon gauze Porter Blouse in this pale lavender pastel with the Hargen or Trace skirt. A classic roomy button down with a curved hemline, box pleat in back, and button-up tab details at the cuffs, the gauze adds texture that differentiates Porter from other button-downs. An easy layering piece for any season, Porter is also gorgeously breezy all on her own. She’d stun even more with pops of turquoise, orange, red, or green to contrast the delicacy of Windflower, and with a shoe that pulls in all the colors and ties everything together.

An upgraded tee brings out the youthful energy of mini skirts in Windflower, as seen with the Gardiner Banded Top. With a slightly slouchy and oversized fit, elbow-length contrasting banded short sleeves, and high-low hem, Gardiner bids basic bye bye while maintaining a relaxed, comfortable look. If you’re looking to formalize the look, add in a structured blazer and some earth-toned shoes for evening drinks or date night.

As the season heats up, a simple tank goes a long way when building an outfit. The Gauze Minerva Tank has an unexpected tie-up detail beneath a row of tortoiseshell buttons. With a slightly cropped fit, high-low hem, and v-neck button-down design, Minerva feels bohemian-inspired and delightfully cozy in the lavender haze of Windflower. Opt for a go-to monochrome look or try out some mid-blue high-waist jeans or denim shorts and a neutral or pop-of-color sandal in teal or even a deeper purple.

Celebrate Windflower in her full glory with the Aviana Dress in this blooming hue. An athletic yet totally chic mini dress with cap sleeves and ruching throughout, Aviana is as flattering as she is movement-friendly. The gathered detailing and bodice jersey inserts flatter and cinch you just-so, while style lines add structure and the cap sleeves provide a bit of coverage. In stretch poplin with cotton spandex contrast, Aviana is fit for a party and if you really want—for a jog just as well. If you’re going for more daring and formal, style Aviana with thigh-high boots in black or white, an oversized clutch in a Windflower-contrasting color like red or camel, and some hoop earrings; or go for sneakers and a cute cardigan for a simpler, more subdued option.

Styling Windflower with hints of bold color or contrasting separates in bright blue, green, orange, or red invokes vibrant, electrifying, magical color stories that feel like a fantasy. Create a rich landscape beginning with the lavender base and make an outfit that celebrates the richness of color. With Windflower as your foundation, your outfit can support eclectic hues without looking over the top. Understated yet magical, Windflower is just about as Spring-like as they come. Celebrate the season of abundance, rebirth, and growth in your favorite new calming yet lush color.
