How to Style Blush, Gold & Nude Bridesmaid Dresses
The big color trend for all things blush, nude and gold has swiftly migrated from the catwalks into bridal-wear. This delicious champagne and floral-inspired trend is everywhere right now and simply because these tones are so feminine, romantic and celebratory, it makes perfect sense to mix of these shades for your bridesmaids to wear on your big day. They pair beautifully with pink or white flower bouquets and are also easy to style with coordinating accessories such as simple metallics, monochrome or similar nude shades. We’ve selected one dress from each of the colors and put together some styling ideas for you to steal and adapt. Mix and match bridesmaid dresses make for such a modern look, and bridesmaids will love being able to choose their most flattering color and style. Read on for a few of the many ways you can make this fashion trend work in a bridesmaid context.
If you want to try something different and buck the usual trend of having your bridesmaids each wearing the exact same design – which can be limiting if some of your bridesmaids want to choose for themselves or have different styles – this could be one way to go. This color trend is the perfect way to try it out mixing and matching dresses – simply choose bridesmaid dresses from each color and make sure they all match up – just check that the embellishments or any beading coordinates too when you’re making your final choice – put them all together on a rack or have a trying on session and make sure they all complement each other. You can even do the same for accessories – pair a blush dress with gold accessories and vice versa to create a unique effect that’ll look amazing in photographs and stand out as different.
Here are some styling tips and ideas to get you started!
Blush Dress: Pink Sleeveless Chiffon Long Bridesmaid Dress JVN99401
This chiffon bridesmaid dress is a gorgeous blush color that’ll suit all of your chosen bridesmaids! It has a flattering drape that includes a cross-over bodice with a deep V and a flowing skirt. The waistline and shoulders have multi-color embellishment detail that’ll shimmer and catch the light. This gorgeous rosy shade will look so pretty photographed, while it still stand out from the bride in white.
We recommend styling this with coordinating blush and gold chandelier earrings. Put them on display by opting for a loose up-do – we love this low braided bun that works in a bejeweled clip to keep up the formal look.
For makeup, add a little contrast by going for a deep bronze and gold eyeshadow, strong eyebrows and lightly contoured cheeks. A glossy pink-tinted lip balm or lipstick with a cream finish will complete the beauty look.
Add a gold clutch and heels to complete this look – they’ll match with the earrings and makeup beautifully.

Nude Dress: Nude Sheer Neckline Dress JVN31447
The stunning nude dress creates an attention-grabbing illusion with its amazing sheer bodice that’s encrusted with intricate embellishment. The bodice is also covered in glittering crystals that band together at the neckline and waist. The skirt half of this dress is gently pleated and is composed from a mesh stretch fabric, so it’s so comfortable to move around in and easy to wear too. This nude-toned dress is also right on trend.
Teamed up with a statement beaded clutch to add even more texture and simple nude sandals, this will create a delicate bridesmaid look.
We love the idea of pairing this with a deep chocolate brown smoky eye, light brown lipstick and bronzed cheekbones. Hair can be worn down or if you want to add more detail, add a braided or flower crown around loose waves. An amazing gold and beige manicure is the perfect finishing touch!

Gold Dress: Nude and Gold Two Piece Embellished Mermaid Dress JVN36889
We love everything about this amazing two-piece mermaid dress which mixes gold and nude together beautifully. The dress and skirt both feature gold beading that swirls in a gorgeous pattern across this dress. The bodice includes a sheer panel at the front and entirely sheer back that’s covered in even more beads. The skirt half has a dramatic tulle nude mermaid tail that extends slightly longer from behind. This is dramatic and fashion-forward but with a soft edge that’ll make it just right for a bridesmaid.
Pair this with nude eyes – add some gold shadow to just the corner of the eyes and plenty of mascara. Subtle flesh tone eyeshadow can be used to add a smoky/depth effect. Keep lips nude with a flattering nude tone lipstick that’s similar to your natural lip shade.
