It’s safe to say that I’m basically nuts about coral right now. Coral lipstick? Check. Coral pants? Check. Coral Chloe bag? Cheeeeccckk! What I love even more about Coral is pairing it with a super neutral color story– crisp khaki colors, ivories, whites, shades of grey. It makes that one burst of color pop even more. My ultimate fav? Skinny khaki trousers, crisp white collared shirt, gold accessories with pop of coral lipstick. A simple but effective accessory! I’m also crushin’ on coral + animal prints. Coral meets leopard print and fur? Hi. This leads me to my next conclusion: coral also isn’t just for summer. Brights are going to be very popular this fall– especially paired with neutrals. So dust off your tweed skirt and pair it with that amazing coral cardigan you’ve been sporting all summer.

So, how can you incorporate this same coral aesthetic into your event? Start with a neutral backdrop and build in subtle coral accents like khaki bridesmaids dresses with gold jewels and coral bouquets; oyster linens with a coral napkin and simple coral floral arrangements; ivory crane with gold emboss invitations and a coral envelope. Happy planning! xx
