Expert commentary from SilkFred’s Head Stylist, Megan Watkins, on why sage green is expected to be a top choice for wedding colour palettes in 2023:
On the sage green trend, Megan reveals: “Having been an underrated favourite of the fashion in-crowd for the past couple of years, it is safe to say that sage green is finally having its moment, with SilkFred seeing a a staggering 800% increase in the term ‘sage green bridesmaid dress’ this month alone. Its subdued feel and neutral hue is perfect for earth-toned and natural wedding colour palettes and serves as a nod to nature and eco-conscious weddings, another trend that is set to be all the rage in 2023.
Sage green adds a subtle pop of colour, whilst still being minimalist. Not only does this neutral colour fit elegantly into classic wedding decor, it can also fit seamlessly into your everyday wardrobe.”
Expert tips on how to style a sage green colour palette:
But how can you style sage green? Megan recommends: “Picking a bridesmaid dress that suits all styles, body types and skin tones whilst also accentuating the bride is no easy feat. Luckily, sage green works wonders as it is flattering to all skin tones whilst accentuating the white of the bridal gown.
As it fits into the pastel family, sage green matches well with other light hues, such as lavender or peach. Alternatively, you can keep with the earth-toned theme and pair your sage green dress with khaki heels or 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.
Whatever bridesmaid dress is right for you, SilkFred has 400+ styles for you to choose from, from our dedicated bridesmaid edit.”
