Find complementary colors: Also, think about choosing a shade that goes well with a variety of skin tones. Stonewashed colors, like blush, greige (a combination of gray and beige) and sand, are universally flattering and right on trend. Jewel tones (think amethyst, emerald and sapphire) complement fairer complexions, while brighter, bolder hues, like cobalt blue and hot pink, pop against darker skin. Want an edgier feel? Try flattering metallics, like silver, bronze and champagne.
Set the Budget: Between the dress, shoes, jewelry and other expenses, being a bridesmaid can really start to add up. When it comes to the price of the dress you choose for your attendants, be mindful of their lifestyles. A pricier option may be a financial burden for one or more of your bridesmaids so consider some cost_effective options like buying a dress off_the_rack, cutting the cost of alterations or deciding on the color and letting your girls choose the dress that fits their budget.
