How to get your bridesmaids in the hottest colors of the season.


  blue.003   So, I hate being a slave to trends... who am I kidding!? I love trends! Setting. Breaking. Trying. Failing. I love it all. The glorious thing about fashion is that you literally get to watch the evolution from season to season. You get to see designers imagine, create, and decide what colors and fabrics and styles are having their big moment! It’s sexy! If you don’t have an appreciation for the fashion industry watch “The Devil Wears Prada” again and listen to Meryl Streep give Annie Hathaway a verbal sucker punch when her character scoffs at the difficult design to pick the proper belt. A lot of thought goes into what’s “in” and that, of course, doesn’t mean you have to love it... but chances are you will ;) Okay enough of my soap box. We get it, I like fashion. So, all of that to say we are gonna talk the hot colors which are purple and teal. The purples have evolved from last season and are much more muted and calm. Basically take any shade of purple and add a bit of gray to the coloring. Removing that saturated color creates a really high fashion look. I also find these color flattering on a larger variety of girls.The blues are a little more jewel tone. I think it’s funny that one is duller and one is brighter, but it’s a nice contrast and I think a fun a bold color combo. Jewel tones are flattering to many skin tones as well and I think they just ooze fancy. So here are some of my favorite designers and their take on the season’s hit colors. Enjoy! blue.002blue.004blue.001blue.005

Until we meet again, stay bridal and stay on trend. or don’t. just do what you want. as long as what you want isn’t a hot mess.
