Peach Dresses for Bridesmaids, Proms and Parties
Peach is a flattering color that gives an outfit warmth and elegance. Choose a peach dress for a special occasion or a summer party.
Be Pretty in Peach
Peach is a gorgeous shade that is more subtle and refined than its close-cousin orange, and is just as feminine as pink without being childish.
Brides often find peach dresses are perfect for their bridesmaids, suiting a wide range of complexions and also blending well with her own dress and most wedding decor and flowers.
However, it's not just for weddings and is ideal for parties and special occasions, especially during the warmer months.
Shades that go well with peach include gold, cream, ivory, and chocolate. Turquoise creates a strong contrast with peach if you want to make a statement.

Does Peach Suit You?
One important question to ask yourself, naturally, is whether a peach dress will show you off to your best advantage.
Shades of Peach
Dress designers work in an industry where being different gets you noticed. They don't always use the color names you might use to describe a fabric.
For example, that gorgeous Mother of the Bride gown above is described as 'cinnamon'. So it's useful to know what other terms can be used to describe a dress that you or I might call peach.
This Betsey Johnson dress (top) has been described as blush.
That probably means its closer to pink than to orange tones.
Doesn't it look gorgeous with that vivid belt?
The beaded evening dress in the middle is the perfect style for a summer wedding or prom.
While I'd describe this silk dress as peach, the manufacturers describe it as mandarin.
The ball gown from Fairytailes at the bottom is officially described as salmon.
I've also spotted gorgeous dark peach dresses in the orange section though I bet most of us wouldn't look there for our peach dress.

Accessorize your beautiful peach dress with gold jewelry (it will work better than silver). Gold shoes and a gold purse will also look great.
A deep shade of coral is also a fantastic choice for accessorizing a peach outfit.
If you need an extra layer for warmth, try a dressy cardigan or jacket in cream -- peaches and cream is a classic combination and lovely for summer and for weddings!
