Minty Fresh – Cool High Street Hues for Bridesmaid Dresses

AISLE STYLE, Bridesmaid

So continue with my picks of the best high street bridesmaids dresses, today I’m willing the sun to shine [of course, I know it won’t] for these pretty pastel colours of ice cool blues to minty fresh greens. Something very evoking of the 50s about these colours, the pretty kitsch pastel colours, but if teamed with co-ordinating shades of soft pinks, or even bright reds the look can be very much updated to cool contemporary.

Add some fun textures such as layers, lace and beautiful big satin ribbons for girly touches or silver beading works well too with these shades. Add some metallic heels and a soft smokey eye to elevate the look into something a little sexier.

For those urban chic ladies Рyou may prefer something less girly and something a bit more structured in shape. Simple shifts, or classic cuts are modern and elegant perfect for city style.

I hope that’s inspired some of you to go to the minty side of green, who cares if Pantone says it’s all about Emerald, I prefer a softer shade and it’s perfect for the prettiest of spring or summer weddings!

Up next week is my pick of the best neutrals, perfect for brides and bridesmaids who are looking for crisp whites and interesting ivories.
