Vibrant Hues Are the Colors for 2023 Spring & Summer Weddings

September’s 2022 New York Fashion Week is over, but we are still swooning over the vibrant and colorful designs we just saw. The floral-inspired prints were gorgeous and lovely, especially in Caroline Herrara’s collection. Fashion inspired by actual flowers was inspiring and exciting and appeared on the runways of Loewe and Dion Lee. Here, dresses shaped like vibrant anthurium blooms and monstera leaves blew us away with their bold, tropical vibe. For something a little more glamorous, Schiaparelli’s collection had plenty of luxe accents paired with heavier, bolder flowers like rosy red ginger. A hint for future bridesmaids who will be wearing rich velvet dresses, a bolder, less delicate flower will look fantastic.

The dynamic and fun colors of NYFW will be everywhere in spring and summer 2023 fashion. Hues that dominated the runways were bright fuschia, tangerine orange, fluorescent green, vibrant yellow, and cobalt blue. Striking color combinations and bold hues were on display, along with more neutral tones, such as Vanilla Cream and Gray Lilac. The overall theme of these daring colors paired with familiar neutrals is one of individuality, strength, creativity, and fun.
