Here are some of the top nine key bridesmaid looks for 2014!
Number 1. – Lace Lace, which is popular on ready-to-wear runways and red carpets and is one of the top picks for bridesmaid dress fabrics. You’ll see all lace dresses as well as part lace gowns where the bodice or skirt is paired with a complementary fabric.
Number 2. – Purple and Blush According to bridesmaid dress designers purple still reigns supreme as the NO.1 bridesmaid dress color in shades as dark and rich as eggplant to the palest soft lavender, followed by light blush tones. While other colors seem to come and go, purple remains a trusty option.
Number 3. – Asymmetrical Neckline and Hemlines Whether it’s a one-shoulder neckline or a hi-low hemline, asymmetry is definitely in for both wedding dresses and bridesmaid styles. Great for those with toned upper arms and shoulders.
Number 4. – Illusion Necklines Illusion necklines have been huge on wedding gown runways for a while now and they’re becoming increasingly popular as bridesmaid styles. We like to think of illusion necklines as strapless with a bit more coverage, and whether it’s lace or sheer, it provides a classic and elegant look on most styles.
Number 5. – Hint of Sparkle Bridesmaid dresses are usually fairly simple, but we’re seeing more and more designers add a wee bit of glam to their bridesmaid styles. Whether it’s a small brooch or a bodice decorated in sequins, these styles are great for super-formal black-tie weddings.
Number 6. – Beach Ombre Styles If you’re having a warm-weather beach wedding then we love lightweight ombre gowns, which have proven popular all season. Whether you choose bright colors or something subtler, these styles scream “summer.”
Number 7. – Peplums Another trend that we first saw on bridesmaid runways last season – peplums! This modern detail was shown on both romantic gowns and more structured minis and is set to continue into next year. Hooray!
Number 8. – Gorgeous Back Details Designers are focusing more and more on the back view of both wedding and bridesmaid dresses, which look fab with up-do hairstyles. Similar to on-trend wedding gown styles, keyhole, illusion, and gorgeous ruffled backs, these are all hitting the bridesmaid dress scene.
Number 9. – Two-Tone Black and white is such a modern and classic color scheme, plus we love how it looks on bridesmaid dresses. It’s easy to throw on a simple blazer over a short black-and-white bridesmaid style to turn it into an office outfit. Why wouldn’t you go for this?
