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 revalation is the style of dress that is emerging for bridesmaid which has a long, loose, maxi style. This 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 navy 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. Check out the dresses and silhouettes for this line: Rory Beca MAID by Yifat Oren – I think you’ll love them. Like others I’ve featured on Dress for the Wedding, this is yet another collection that makes mixing and matching several silhouettes easy, and allows for really, truly wear again dresses. I’d wear this dress anywhere!
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!
