I’m trying to pick out a bridesmaid dress for my girls. Our wedding is in December and I am pretty set on Amsale dresses in Eggplant, but I’m having a hard time telling if that’s the color I want or if it’s Aubergine.
Their website says that this is chiffon shown in Eggplant: http://www.amsale.com/bridesmaids/chiffon/G588C.shtml.
This is from Nordstrom’s website, Ruffle Silk Chiffon shown in Eggplant.
Is it just me or do these seem like different shades? I got swatches and it seems like the first dress looks more like the aubergine swatch. Could it just be the lighting?
Personally, I like the first dress more, although I wonder if it looks too “maroon”.
What do you think? Are they the same color? Do you have a preference?
I’m also wondering what is a good color to compliment it? Linens? Mother of the bride/groom? I think I’m going to have the girls wear silver/metallic shoes, but I’m not sure if my mom wants to wear silver.

The first pic! The Aubergine is just lovely!

@vanessa7: They definitely look like different shades. I personally prefer the aubergine. I think it’s a really sophisticated color that will pair well with metallic and neutral shades. I think it would look lovely with blush, gold or silver, black, ivory, and/or champagne.

Ah, I think so, too!! It’s just hard to tell with Amsale’s website saying the first color is eggplant when they definitely don’t look the same!

I have a sash in aubergine and mine looks darker and redder than yours in the pic. I hate how different brnads have different shades ;|
