They’re your best friends, your family, or your soon-to-be family. You’ve invited them to participate in one of the most important events of your life. They’re obviously very important to you, which raises a crucial question: what are they going to wear at your wedding?
At this year’s bridal fashion week, the focus wasn’t just on the woman in white; beautiful
bridesmaids’ dresses also had their turn on center stage. Here is what’s trending for fall 2015:
Trend #1: Tier it Up
In both long and short hemlines, softly flowing tiers graced the runway for this fall. Light layers of chiffon or silk give a soft, elegant look. Some dresses are constructed of all loose drapes, while others have more structure and a tiered accent on the bodice or neckline.
Trend #2: Peek-a-Boo Backs
When bridesmaids walk up the aisle, their backs are on full display to the seated guests. Why not dress them up a little? Dresses feature everything from keyhole cut-outs to full bare backs. Make sure to take your bridesmaids’ bra needs into account!
Trend #3: Sheer Elegance
If you want your bridesmaids to be a little sexy but not show too much skin, this year’s sheer details will do the trick. Try sheer fabrics at the neck, shoulders, back, and even arms. It’s the perfect answer for a wedding that requires a little extra modesty without feeling frumpy.
Trend #4: Go Grey
Grey is a sophisticated choice for bridesmaids’ dressing, combining industrial simplicity with feminine details. Look for soft fabrics like chiffon or romantic details like lace.
Trend #5: Go Glam
For a formal evening wedding, choose from many designers’ fit-and-flare styles in gemstone colors. The glamour of a bygone day will add a touch of class to your special night.
