Pastels can be tricky. They don't always work for your skin tone, and they definitely don't work in every season — but lilac is different.

This pale purple hue looks good on virtually any skin tone at any time of year. What's not to love?!

Lilliana Vasquez, TODAY Style Squad member and founder of, has created found three great looks (and loads of accessories) so you can make a statement by choosing lilac.
