We hand over to our Wedding contributor Tamarin, the editor from Nouba, to chat about the latest bridesmaid trends taking the wedding world by storm.
Brides often tell us that finding dresses for their favourite ladies can consume more time and energy than finding their own! Of course, if you subscribe to the idea that bridesmaid dresses should match, then you’ll have your work cut out to find one style to suit each height, body shape and personal taste. At Nouba, we’re firm believers that each of your girls should wear something they’ll adore and wear again and again.
The good news is that current bridesmaid trends really lend themselves to the mix n’ match policy. Whether you adopt an ‘anything goes’ approach, or tighten the look with a style brief, you can be pretty sure your tribe will feel their best if they can personalise their individual looks.
With this flexibility in mind, I’ve rounded up some of the current bridesmaid trends that we’re loving right now.
Can’t decide on a floral, stripe or geometric look? Go ahead and mix it up! Use a loose colour palette or consistent accessory (shoes, necklace, flower crown, etc) to complete the story.
Tonal + Colour blocking
The perfect way to work to a palette and still mix things up. Decide on a key colour and work within its tonal variations
A huge bridal trend, separates are an equally popular choice for bridesmaids. A great way to work in some colour blocking too.
All in black
Traditionally black isn’t worn to a wedding… but you know how we feel about tradition. The little black dress is iconic for a reason – so why not gift your maids an outfit they’ll look amazing in and wear again and again?
Jumpsuits & Playsuits
Another bridal trend that has filtered into the bridesmaid realm – jumpsuits and playsuits are great for your not-so-girly girls.
Because glitter is always a good idea.
Trust your tribe to nail it on heir own? Forget the brief and ask them to wear their favourite outfit. When they’re standing by your side with their bouquets, trust me, they’ll look the part!
