Embellished dresses, color blocked designs, fringe fashion and sharp colors were all the rage on the fashion runways for this fall and winter. Along with these, there were also new and fresh updates to the color palettes for the cooler months. Take a look at our favorites, and make sure to pick your next evening gown keeping these colors in mind for an updated and chic look.
Teal for party wear
Teal, or a jade teal to be precise, was showcased on the runways for the first time ever, and was a huge hit. It is a colour that is striking and has sophisticated charm. Also, teal is a color that looks great on satins and silks, making it the perfect choice for evening gowns and cocktail dresses. With a color so striking and one that works beautifully with both short and long dresses, all you need is a pair of diamond studs to complete your look.
Muted powder pink and ice blue pastels
Pastels are still in, but with an interesting variation. The colors this year were muted or almost greyed-out, for a “barely-there” effect. If you are having a winter or autumn wedding and want your bridesmaids wearing the trends of the year, go with muted powder pink or ice-blue. Ice blue is a new entree into the fashion scene, and has been spotted everywhere, from gowns to blouses and footwear. Pair it with black, white or bright colors for a striking effect. Other pastel choices include dusty pink and smokey purple.
Sunny orange to warm up the chills
Generous doses of orange added splashes of color to the wintry scene on every catwalk. The color choices varied from lively clementine to sunny orange. While the darker and dusty oranges were paired with browns and blacks, a more vibrant mix was orange paired with blues and purples. Consider this tropical color for your evening gown or cocktail dress, if you want a touch of summer in winter. It also goes well with camel, which is the other hit color this season.
Camel as the new neutral
A masculine color that is slowly gaining popularity among women, camel was seen everywhere in both outerwear, dresses and capes on the runway. It was also featured in premium outerwear and well-tailored suits.While the general winter palette had reds and browns, camel added a stunning signature look to a variety of evening dresses and frocks. A colour that easily blends in with any ensemble, it is stylish, yet unobtrusive. If not an evening gown, you could get your winter coat in this colour, or choose your footwear in this shade and pair it with a red, orange or brown dress to keep up with the trends.
Sophistication with grey
Grey was the choice for formal and office wear. It was kept monochrome in most designs, but interesting with the addition of texture and designs. If it is a formal work-related party, choose your evening wear in grey. Charcoal grey with shimmery accents were a trendsetter.
