Taupe Maxi Dress to Wear to a Wedding
Neutral bridesmaid dresses are at an all-time high in popularity, and the soft, natural look of this color doesn’t show any signs of stopping. What is a revelation is the style of dress that is emerging for bridesmaid which has a long, loose, maxi style. The featured neutral maxi dress could even be worn as a wedding guest dress (provided this color isn’t too much like cream or ivory in person – but I believe it is wedding-guest friendly and faux-pas-proof taupe). It also comes in other darker shades and cobalt for a truly irreproachable color.
This line from Rory Beca just for bridesmaids is what I would call polished bohemian – the gown is silk, but the look is relaxed, and that’s what many wedding parties want – a sort of undone formality.
Accessories for a Neutral Maxi Dress
For this look, I styled it with an ‘after the wedding’ look, although you can certainly include some of these pieces in a look for bridesmaids. To keep this gown from fading in the background, I went with some eye-catching details like those laser cut sandals, and embellished clutch, and paired it my favorite neutral polish. I’m wearing this nail polish right now as I type this, and I love its pinkish, gray, lavender tones for fall. If you want a neutral look that is far from basic and very versatile, go neutral, but go with a dress like this!

All the maxi dresses in the color dune or show me the ring, have a beautiful neutral color. The darker, dune, is fine for wedding guests, while the other color is better for bridesmaids because it is a lighter ivory beige.
This super boho style is in the color mocha. It too is a bridesmaid dress, but I can see it as a wedding guest dress so long as the color is truly a mocha taupe in person! Inna Off the Shoulder Chiffon Blouson Gown
Another flowy maxi dress is this Inesse gown by Jenny Yoo. The color – Wisteria– seems like it will have a tinge of purple, but it also looks like it has overtones of taupe, mocha, and mauve! Looks like a yummy color for wedding guest or for a bridal party.
