The Most Flattering Bridesmaids Dress Colours For 2020

by One Fine Collective

Bridesmaids dresses have developed a bit of an infamy over the years, which puffy peach meringues being the favourite choice by brides all throughout the 80s and then rather unflattering shiny taffeta gowns taking the cake in the 90s. Luckily for us, 2020 has brought about a revamp, with brides and bridesmaids working together to find dresses that make everyone happy.

Here we run through the colours we’ll see on bridal parties across the globe in the coming year, and our top picks of dresses in those shades available to shop in Australia.

Sand

You may have seen some sand, shell or nude tones walking down aisles in 2019, but we can confirm this trend is going absolutely nowhere. Famously flattering and known to gel well with neutral wedding colour palettes, Sand hues are an easy fit for your easy breezy big day.
