Five Fall 2010 Bridesmaids Dress Trends
I don’t see anything wrong with always being the bridesmaid but never the bride if it means getting to wear and keep a gorgeous bridesmaids dress (if the dress is ugly, then it’s an entirely different story). Check out these fall 2010 bridesmaids dress trends fresh from the runway! I’m starting to wish my friends would hurry up and get married so I can have an excuse to dress up too.
Designers everywhere are saying so long to strapless dresses and introducing more varied necklines. One of the hottest trends is the classy bateau neck, as seen in Melissa Sweet’s collection. I’m loving the dark purple hue too.
Shades of Gray
Gray is the new brown because its neutrality complements most skin tones. Not to mention that shades of gray will always be chic no matter what the season is! Gray bridesmaids dresses are also an excellent choice if you like the timeless look of the little black dress but superstitious enough to discourage your guests from wearing black to your wedding.
Why let your bridesmaids wear one color when they can wear two? Two-toned dresses are in this season, as well as seperates-inspired dresses.
It’s very common for bridesmaids dresses to come in sleeveless styles, but you might want to consider chic sleeves for your girls – especially for the more conservative ones who want to cover up. This chiffon mini dress has sheer sleeves for flattering coverage.
A number of designers created bridesmaids dresses in shades that are very close to bridal white. Try looking for fabrics in soft khaki, vanilla, or a very pale beige – but make sure your wedding dress doesn’t blend in!
