Silver fabric comes in many types at the kemedress store, though most people usually associate it with metallic fabric like lamé. However, you can definitely use it to get a really chic, elegant look without having to resort to a super shiny, metallic material to avoid spoiling the burnished effect. Silver fabric comes with anything from a true silver to a warmer, almost pewter shade, so there is a color to suit any shape, style, or skin tone.
True silvers tend to be cool-toned, and, as such, look best on cool complexions that favor blues, greens, and other cool colors. Some others are somewhat warmer, tending almost to a cooler version of bronze or pewter, and can still be suitable if your wedding party is chiefly medium- to dark-skinned, but you still want your girls in silver on your wedding day. For pulling off the color on a bridesmaid's dress, a shiny fabric should be chosen (think silks or satins, instead of raw silk or jersey), since silver-toned fabrics with matte finishes tend to come off closer to grey or slate blue.
