Good afternoon, dolls!
After our feature last week on mixed bridesmaid dresses, we got to thinking. Wouldn’t it be fun for us to choose a few of our favorite dresses and create one big ‘ol mix ‘n’ match Shopping Guide? So with the help of the amazingly talented Miss Sierra we’ve now got color palettes full of gorgeous dresses that are sure to get your style wheels turning!
Let’s start with a nice muted tan and creamy combo. I could see this along side beaus in navy blazers and khakis. Yes, please!
From left to right: Lilly Pulitzer “Blossom” dress in cameo white swizzle stripe ($298), Anthropologie “Veiled Alder” dress in dark grey ($298), Alexia Ardmor “Jewel Neck Trapeze” dress in champagne hammered satin ($198), Laundry by Shelli Segal “Necklace Shimmer Waterfall” ($325)
This next selection makes me wish for spring already! Especially that SW blue J.Crew little number….
From left to right: Jenny Yoo “Quinn” in bamboo luxe shantung ($300), J.Crew “Bow Monde” dress in silk taffeta ($250), Donna Morgan “Striped” dress ($68), J.Crew “Lucienne” in dusty shale silk chiffon ($235)
Navy + black seem like such an unlikely pair, but together they make a sophisticated winter duo. Adding a pair of black tights elongates the silhouette AND keeps away the chill bumps – double score!
From left to right: BCBGeneration “Asymmetrical Double-Strap Dress” in stormy sky ($118), BHLDN “Chiffon Stripe Dress” in black ($250), J. Crew “Arabelle” in winter floral ($395) and Kate Spade “Jillian” ($395)
Yellow brings a pop of sunshine to these simple and classic dress designs.
From left to right: Maggie London “Keyhole Chiffon” dress in butter ($118), J.Crew “Mika dress in silk taffeta” ($250), Alice + Olivia “Elizabeth Tank Dress” ($118.80), Asos “Paprika One Shoulder Corsage Prom Dress” ($26.19)
Paired with metallic sandals, these red hues would work for a fall or spring wedding. Use accessory selection and hairstyle to dictate the season.
From left to right: J.Crew “Lucienne One-Shoulder Chiffon Dress” in vivid poppy ($235), Jim Hjelm Occasions “Style JH5150″ in sunset, Jessica Simpson “Pleated Chiffon Dress” in coral ($148), BCBGeneration “Strapless Satin Blouson Dress” in passion ($118)
Looking for a way to make purple work in the fall? Ditch the grape tones and opt for a more plum- or raisin-colored palette. Fun and sophisticated.
From left to right: Eliza J Beaded Bloused Jersey Dress ($138), Soprano “One Shoulder Draped Dress” ($48), Eliza J “One Shoulder” dress in eggplant taffeta ($138), BCBGeneration “Strapless Cascade Dress” in rosewood ($128)
I’m dying over the one-shoulder striped Modcloth dress! Mixing subtle prints and solids is a great way to change up the ever-popular LBD!
From left to right: Eliza J “Sleeveless Taffeta” in black ($138), Modcloth “Elegant Engineer” ($68), Maggy London “One Shoulder Dress” in black ($128) and BHLDN “Beribboned” in pewter ($200)
Adding soft aqua to creamy coral really give this combo of dresses that punch of color it needs.
From left to right: Asos “Corsage One-Shoulder Dress” in pink ($114), Jessica Simpson “Tulip Tunic Dress” ($128), BCBGeneration “One-Shoulder Ruffle Dress” in burnt coral ($128), Asos “Lipsy VIP Embellished Bustier Tulip Dress” ($193)
This grouping is perfect for you lovely brides who are looking for a more monochromatic look. The color is the same, but the range of styles would complement all different body types and styles.
From left to right: J. Crew “Blakely” in warm riviera blue ($250), J.Crew “Claudia” long in matisse blue silk chiffon ($385), Dessy Collection “Style 2831″ in sailor lux chiffon, Kara Janx “Bailey Charmeuse One Shoulder Dress” ($251.99)
Hello, pretty + preppy! Navy + pink is such a fun color combo, and our selection of Lillys will have you reaching for your pearls before you even have the dress on!
From left to right: Lilly Pulitzer “Eryn” dress in multi chorus girl ($198), Lilly Pulitzer “Adelson” shift in azalea pink ($278), Lilly Pulitzer “Dominica” dress in bright navy brava ($188), Lilly Pulitzer “Shayna” lace dress in true navy ($368)
Our green machine combo takes traditional apple green and mixes with muted sage to create quite the lovely ensemble.
From left to right: Jenny Yoo “Bacall” in emerald green silk shangtung ($300), ModCloth “Have We Met? Dress” ($84.99), Anthropologie “Sweet Osmanthus” shift in green ($178), ModCloth “Feelin’ Finery Dress” ($47.99)
