Sequins and sparkle - metallic bridesmaid dresses

Categories: Fashion

There’s nothing like sequins to say modern glamour! Fabulous matte metallics and chic structured dresses are the perfect picks for a bridal party with modern day style. Sheath dresses dripping in sequins or deconstructed lace gowns will add some serious romance to a simple silhouette.
From rose gold to blush, copper, champagne and silver, this look will complement any chosen wedding colour palette or season.

  • Silver hues look great on paler skin tones, while those with darker or more olive skin will look fabulous in gold, pewter or copper dresses.
  • If you’re worried that your girls will look more like a disco ball than a bridesmaid, pair them with neutral shoes, white blooms and minimal jewellery. Mixing the super glamorous with the crisp is so chic!
  • When it comes to bridal party beauty, keep it classy and soft. Add big hair, bigger nails and too much make-up and it will clash with your metallic gowns. 
  • Bring the metallic look into the modern day, with clean lines and figure-hugging silhouettes, anything too fussy might look a little 80s.
  • Metallics are perfect for both summer and winter weddings, pair with darker shades like burgundy blooms and high candelabras for a dramatic look, or wear light fabrics, Grecian accessories and sporadic sequins for a soft summer vibe.
  • If you’re not sure whether to go with silver or gold, opt for rose gold gowns which look utterly romantic and works with almost any skin tone.
  • Sheer fabrics go beautifully with beading or sequins, blend the light with the heavy for a gorgeously balanced look. 
  • If you’re afraid of going all-out metallic, opt for some gold lace or sequin detailing on the dress to allude to the trend without diving in head first.
  • Likewise, matte metallics are a chic way to ease you into the look without too much sparkle.
  • Colour pairing: silvers look beautiful with whites, blues and greys, while gold is a little more versatile and goes great with punchy reds and pinks, elegant blacks, or romantic blush hues and neutrals.
