Just a quick heads-up before we continue on with our fashion feature that we have some great conversations happening over on BackStage…yesterday’s magazines vs. blogs discussion is still going strong and today, I’ve put up a little bit of information about my first adventure into entrepreneurship, Abby Jean, the stationery company that I launched nearly 6 years ago!

OK, moving on! We are chatting with our newest Round-Up Editor, Carrie, about all things bridesmaid. I am love, love, loving the jewel toned hues that are gracing runways and think that this next set is the PERFECT timeless option for your girls. Here’s Carrie!

We have been searching for the best dresses for those beautiful bridesmaids, and boy do we have some pretty little finds to share with you today! Here are a few more of our favorite picks in an assortment of jeweled hues.

Jewel tones are huge in fashion right now and are a natural choice for your bridesmaids year round. Why, you may ask? These gorgeous hues are so flattering on every skin tone and can be found in a wide variety of styles. Here are a few of our favs…

Top Row: Vineyard Collection, BCBG, and Ann Taylor created these gorgeous blues. While the BCBG dress is full of texture and playful details, the other two are super chic and perfect for a more traditional affair.

Middle Row: Your bridesmaids will be utterly gorgeous dressed in any one of the gems in this trio by Laundry by Shelli Segal, Carmen Marc Valvo, and Vineyard Collection. Each saturated in a regal hue and perfectly accented, how can you pick just one?

Bottom Row: These stunners are all by Shoshanna. All designed to flatter the female figure, your bridesmaids will be happy to wear these dresses long after the wedding. Additional bonus, these classic silhouettes can be tailored to fit any style wedding, making these little numbers a must.

More to come in just a bit!
