The Bridesmaid Trend Edit

Thankfully, the days of bad bridesmaid dresses are long gone. Nowadays, bridesmaid dresses are every bit as stylish as you’d hope with flattering silhouettes, gorgeous fabrics and complementary colours. So if you’re wondering what to dress your best friends in for the big day, here’s five key bridesmaid trends you need to know.

Bardot Necklines

Flattering and elegant, the iconic bardot dress is a chic choice that works beautifully with a variety of venues. Planning a traditional church ceremony? Look to our Maddie Maxi Dress with its lace bodice and sweeping maxi skirt for the perfect amount of romance. Or, if you’re planning a relaxed city wedding, try our Oriel Bardot Midi Dress. Short, sweet and oh-so-wearable, your best friends are sure to love wearing it and – even better – they’ll actually want to wear it again.



Dresses not quite your friends’ style? We’ve got just the thing: bridesmaid jumpsuits! Cool and contemporary but just as feminine, jumpsuits are a great alternative to a dress. Add a modern touch to your big day with our Mari Cape Sleeve Jumpsuit, or opt for the romantic Rosita Lace Jumpsuit for a new take on the classic lace bridesmaid dress.


Stylish Separates

Designed for mixing and matching, bridesmaid separates are a great way to create a unique look for each member of your bridal party. Catering for different figures and styles, they can be paired for the big day and worn separately after. For a winter wedding, we love our Tina Top teamed with our April Skirt or, for the warmer months, our Lakin Top is a pretty option.


Cold Shoulder Cuts

Effortlessly stylish, our Charley Maxi Dress is the perfect way to work the cold shoulder trend into your big day. Beautifully modern, it’s a versatile style that works with any venue from beachside ceremonies to country weddings. Plus, it’s an easy style that your friends can wear again.


Mismatched Dresses

Mix it up with different dresses, separates and jumpsuits. The perfect way to let your bridesmaids put their own stamp on your big day (and keep them happy!), it means everyone gets to choose a style they love. The key to making it all work? Choose the same base colour to unite the whole group. So, if green is your colour of choice, take a look at our styles in forest and sage, which will ensure a cohesive look.
