Bridesmaid dresses are having a moment: there are more options for your girls than ever, and this year’s trendy bridesmaid dresses are all about celebrating the unique personalities of everyone in your bridal party, and pulling them together into one cohesive look. Bridesmaid fashion has never been more fun, and the fashion-forward bride is going to love the runway-inspired looks of 2016. Incorporating these five trends into your bridal party will ensure your ladies are as on-trend as you are in your stunning wedding gown:
1.) Modern Metallic Bridesmaid Dresses
From the runway to down the aisle, sequin bridesmaid dresses are one of the biggest trends in bridesmaid fashion right now, and it’s perfect for adding a touch of sophisticated glamour to your wedding day. Worried the metallic look won’t mesh with your understated wedding style? Sorella Vita’s Modern Metallic line features matte sparkle for the perfect muted-yet-glam vibe. These sequin bridesmaid dresses come in several styles—perfect for mixing and matching to fit each ‘maid’s personal style!
2.) Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses
While the uniform bridal party look is timeless, 2016 is all about mismatched bridesmaid dresses. More brides than ever are choosing to let their ‘maids unique personalities shine through by changing up colors, textures, or dress styles amongst each bridesmaid. Your girls will be thrilled that they get to show off their personal style, and it makes for a showstopping entrance. One super-trendy way to mix and match: create an ombre color scheme for your girls’ dresses! Pick a variety of shades from the same color palette, and arrange the ladies from lightest to darkest for an ombre-inspired gorgeous gradient! Another fun play on the mismatch trend is all about length: Keep all your girls in the same color, but change up the style between this whimsical short dress, this elegant floor-length gown, and this trendy midi-length bridesmaid dress.
3.) One-Shoulder Bridesmaid Dresses
Halters, spaghetti straps, off-the-shoulder, cap sleeves: the options for straps are endless when it comes to bridesmaid dresses. The latest strappy trend—that we know your bridesmaids will love—is the one-shoulder bridesmaid gown. Universally flattering and completely on-trend, this strap style is making a big comeback. Draw your inspiration from old Hollywood for the perfectly glamorous bridesmaid look.
4.) The New Neutral Color Palette
Who said neutrals have to be boring? The new neutral is all about creating a classic, yet stylish look. Blush, Vintage Rose, Steel, and Coral are just some of the updated shades in our modern neutral palette. Perfectly understated, dressing your ‘maids in neutrals will ensure an effortless-yet-elegant vibe at your wedding. The best part of these sophisticated shades? Pairing them together for a chic mix-and-match color scheme.
5.) Midi Length Bridesmaid Dresses
Add hemline length to the ever-growing list of options for your bridesmaid dresses. One of the biggest trends in bridesmaid gowns right now is the very trendy midi or tea-length bridesmaid dress. Hitting along the mid-calf, the midi length bridesmaid dress is an unexpected twist on a classic gown. You’ll surprise your guests with this fashion-forward look without sacrificing the formal feel of a longer bridesmaid gown. Pair these midi gowns with a fun pair of heels for a fresh and stylish look (and some amazing photos).
