I was so blown away by the fabulous colors on the runway this season at NYFW, and with about a million more shows that happened since I posted last, that I couldn’t help but make a few more color boards to try and inspire you newly-engaged brides to think out of the box with your color palettes. Today, I actually wanted to revisit some formerly VERY popular palettes given a fresh, new take.
First, from J.Crew, an oldie but goodie: Navy and Pink. Please remember I said Navy and Pink, not Pink and Navy. Typically this is a popular palette for a “Preppy Wedding”, but I think (as inspired by these fun dots) it can handle an edge. Think marker writing and patterns… It has a modern edge- especially if you go heavy on the navy and light on the pops of pink.
If you haven’t looked at the images of the Oscar de la Renta show, it was absolutely A TRIUMPH! Amazing, stunning and I’m not doing it justice with this one paltry image. His show deserves a whole post. Thom Browne’s show deserves a whole week. They were my two favorites by far. Anyway, he showed some Emerald, Black and Cream – which was a combo I adored about 5 years back- and he made it fresh again by a sort of wild, but classic pattern and texture. The key to this look being fresh is the texture and pattern… and NOTE the pops of red in both his look AND the interior shots.

Actually, back to J.Crew again! I know… a million high end shows and I post two J. crew looks, but I loved the way they handled this combo: Salmon and Burgundy. I remember this being popular 10 years ago, but what a chance to make it new again with ethnic prints!
