From the colours of the season to the styles and necklines we’re loving, here are some of our favourite bridesmaids dresses for your bridal squad to wear this year.
We had to start off our list of bridesmaids dress trends by talking about coral, which is going to be everywhere in 2019. Especially since Pantone deemed coral (or more specifically ‘living coral’ as the colour of the year). This colour is perfect for a summer or tropical destination wedding and is a surprisingly versatile colour that can suit a range of skin tones. If you team the look with lots of glowing bronzer and a peach-tinted lip, your maids are sure to look and feel their best.
The other colour you’re going to see a lot of in 2019 is navy for bridesmaids dress trends. This shade grew in popularity during 2018, proving that the classic shade of blue is always in style. While coral is perfect for tropical summer dos, we love navy for a more traditional wedding theme.
This isn’t just a trend for 2019 wedding dresses. The halterneck style is going to be big for everyone – including bridesmaids. Of course, the style’s popularity stems from Meghan Markle and that incredible Stella McCartney dress she wore to her reception. It looked incredible on her and what’s even better is that it’s also a very flattering style on most figures. Everybody wins!
For years we’ve seen convertible bridesmaid styles. In 2019, there’s going to be a shift towards the more simple and classic wrap dress. But don’t just take our word for it – Pinterest has seen a 689% increase in searches for robe silhouettes, meaning the wrap dress in all its myriad forms, is on the up. This wrap dress offers a much-needed combination of comfort and style and is one that flatters a multitude of figures. Your maids will definitely want to wear this again.
The 90s seems to be the surprising fashion era that we just can’t get enough of. For 2019 bridesmaids dress trends, it’s all about the cowl neck. This is a subtly draped neckline that gives the illusion of a fuller bosom without giving too much away. It’s a key feature of the recently revived 90s slip dress. This neckline is a great style if you want your maids to look polished and sophisticated.
