Still deciding what color you want your Quinceanera dress to be? Then read on to learn about Your Quinceanera Dress: What the Colors Symbolize.
Your Quinceanera dress is all-important & for a good reason: You’re saying goodbye to little girl fashion & hello to all that womanhood has to offer. Not only will you use this night to show your loved ones that you’ve grown into a woman, but you also want to show them that you’ve grown into a respectful one as well. So while style is important, taste is, too.
The oldest tradition holds that a Quince dress should be white, much like a wedding gown without the train or the veil. The only other conventional option was a light pink or a pastel—baby blue or pale yellow.
Today’s Quinceaneras often take to bolder, jewel-tone colors like red, blue, and green.
No matter what color Quinceanera dress you choose:
- Keep the look formal.
- Start with that full Cinderella skirt (but choose a removable skirt with a mini-dress option if you wish!)
- Keep the neckline modest.
- Make your personality shine through with color!

Blue: A color often associated with calmness & cleanliness, like the sky on a clear day or a calm ocean in the middle of summer.
Blue is very peaceful & may be perfect for “level-headed” girls. So if this is you, definitely go for the blue.
How to Accent a Blue Quinceanera Dress
- Add metallic gold or silver: Wear metallic jewelry or choose metallic embroidery or lace on the dress.
- Opt for a surprising color block: Pair your blue dress with red.
Tip: Blue and red are lovely together, but they can be too loud—or too patriotic—if the colors are used in balanced proportions.
- For a classy blue & red combo: Choose different hues: Pair a lighter blue with a darker shade of red or vice versa.

There’s nothing more traditional than a white Quinceanera dress!
White represents purity, gives a feeling of innocence & perfection & symbolizes a successful beginning. Not to mention, if it’s traditional in your family to wear white at your Quince, it’ll make your family happy to see you hold to something from your family history instead of going completely modern. Besides, there are plenty of ways to dress up a white gown and still look fresh, up to date, and not washed out.
How to Accent a White Quinceanera Dress
Treat a white dress like a blank canvas: You can do pretty much anything to it!
- Accent a white Quince gown with any color you want.
- Mix and match a few additional colors.
- Have fun with accessories & use them to keep a youthful, playful edge.
Go all out, over the top classic & sophisticated: Accent with just silver or gold (or a little of both).
