Every year there are color trends that seep into the bridal market whether it’s the PANTONE Color of the Year (2019 is the year of Living Coral) or hues born out of fashion month each season (this summer is all about vibrant shades like neon green, electric yellow, bubblegum pink, and tangy orange). While punchy colors seemingly rule for 2019 and early 2020 brides, on the other end of the spectrum, there’s another popular color trend to satiate more subdued tastes: shades of beige, and it’s the perfect natural and neutral tone for bridesmaids’ dresses whether you have one or two gals in your wedding party or upwards of eight or ten.
Technically falling into the non-color category like white, beige tones range from light, sandy shades, sometimes with a bit of yellow in them, to the more saturated end of the spectrum where the color is pigmented with orange, rust, and brown undertones. There are so many variations of beige to choose from, making it a flattering choice for every type of bridesmaid in your party from fair complexions to dark. Beige tones are also incredibly versatile for every kind of wedding and venue year-round whether you’re a summer bride getting married by the beach, having a rustic fall wedding in the country, or saying “I do” in the city for a winter black-tie affair.
And while it’s easy to get caught up in trendy colors and popular, seasonal hues, your bridesmaids will surely appreciate wearing a neutral dress that they don’t feel like an eyesore in. Plus, they'll hopefully feel like they can get a lot more use out of a beige dress whether you decide to have them all wear the same silhouette, experiment with different shapes to flatter a range of body types and styles, or go for a mixed palette and have a beige dress or two as the neutral tie between a range of colors and prints.
