Perfect Bridesmaids Dresses in Pantone’s 2013 Spring Fashion Colours

Chic Vintage Brides series of posts for anyone looking for the elusive bridesmaids dress continues today. So far I have shared some of the most perfect LBBDs (little/long, black, bridesmaids dresses) and the current trend for ivory, today something a little more bright and beautiful for you! Pantone released their Spring 2013 Fashion Colour Report last month highlighting 10 of the key colours for next year and I have found the perfect bridesmaids dresses in the warmest and most summery of their picks…..

Pantone Spring 2013 - Warms

And there is no colour more summery than Lemon Zest yellow. Summer provides the perfect opportunity to be brave and bold with colour and this rich and warm, golden yellow just shouts SUNSHINE! It would be fab as a foundation colour or as a pops of colour for a Summer wedding…..

Taking Tangerine’s place as the “It” colour of the Spring 2013 season is Monaco Blue. Super flattering, it is the picturesque-meets-practical colour that suits all complexions. Pantone describes the shade as having “a shot of sparkle.”

Red has always been a Winter Wedding colour for me… until now! I am loving radiant Poppy Red. a saucy and celebratory shade, it shouts joy with such vivacity, and flatters so many summer themes – nautical, rustic, country fayre….

I love the almost Chartreuse tone of Tender Shoots, it’s such a surprisingly versatile colour – vibrant enough for Spring and Summer, but with more russet oranges it would be Autumnal perfection. It goes beautifully with ivory, with highlights in a blushing orange – the combination fresh, chic and oh so vintage…..
