Jewellers Austen & Blake reveal tips for Christmas proposals
Christmas proposals are a great way to inject even more magic into popping the question...
With wedding season almost upon us, online fashion destination SilkFred has recently seen a 66% increase in searches for 'bridesmaid dresses' and a staggering 800% increase in the term sage-green bridesmaid dress. SilkFred's head stylist, Megan Watkins reveals why sage green is expected to be a top choice for wedding colour palettes in 2023 and offers expert tips on how to style this seasonal shade.
Megan tells us, "Having been an underrated favourite of the fashion in-crowd for the past couple of years, it's safe to say that sage green is finally having its moment. This neutral hue is perfect for earthy and natural wedding colour palettes and serves as a nod to nature and eco-conscious weddings, another trend that is set to be big throughout 2023. Sage green adds a subtle pop of colour, it's minimalist and fits elegantly into classic wedding decor - it can also fit seamlessly into your everyday wardrobe."
How do you style sage green? Megan recommends picking a bridesmaid dress that suits all styles, body types and skin tones whilst also accentuating the bride which isn't an easy task. "Luckily, sage green works wonders because it's flattering for all skin tones whilst accentuating the white of the bridal gown," she tells us. "As it fits into the pastel family, sage green matches well with other light hues, such as lavender or peach. Alternatively, stick with the early-toned theme and pair your sage green dress with khaki heels or an ivory cover-up. If you want to stick to a more elegant monochromatic look, sage green also looks chic with other similar hues such as mint."
