2017 is coming – and if you’re planning on walking down the aisle in the year to come (or you’re helping a bride select the perfect bridesmaid dress for her big day), we’ve got the forecast for the best bridesmaid dresses. Continuing on the subject of bridesmaid dresses, we’re highlighting the top 5 dresses that will be trending in the year to come. And if you haven’t already, be sure to check out our previous article on the past, present and future of what being a bridesmaid is all about. It’s chock-full of history, traditions and fun facts that you never knew – but always wanted to know – about being a bridesmaid.
While these dresses incorporate the latest fashion trends, these pieces also have a feeling of timelessness – so when you’re looking back on your photos, you won’t have to cringe over those puffy sleeves or shoulder pads! Modern and elegant, these top bridesmaid designs are all about looking gorgeous and flattering the figure – which is important if several bridesmaids will be wear the same design and may have varying body shapes and sizes. Here are our top 5 picks for the year to come.
Dress #1: Pink Cap Sleeve Crystal Embellished Bodice Chiffon Bridesmaid Dress JVN47897
This dreamy and flattering bridesmaid dress in light pink is such a complementary color tone. One of its most beautiful features is the beaded bodice, which is embellished with silver detailing. If the bride is wearing silver accessories, this is a unique way to tie the bride and bridesmaid’s outfits together. The cap sleeve design covers the shoulders – but from the back, there is a teardrop-shaped cutout. Emphasizing the waist naturally, the silhouette of this dress will also suit so many shapes and is a great choice if you’re planning on having more than one bridesmaid wearing the same look. The pretty pink color will also match up with brides who opt to wear another color other than the traditional white: it would be gorgeous side-by-side with a champagne or nude-toned wedding dress.
Dress #2: Black Chiffon Long Bridesmaid Dress JVN24413
Black can be a bit of an unconventional bridesmaid dress color, but this dress makes a good case for why it can work better than the rest. The regal beading and pearl-embellished bodice make this bridesmaid dress so elegant and classic. Meanwhile, the floaty chiffon material adds a softer edge to this look and it moves beautifully too – so it’ll look gorgeous on the dance floor. If you want to make a statement with your bridesmaid dress choice, this is one of the most fashion-forward (and boldest!) dress choices. This design also features a satin underlay for a pretty shimmer effect. The cap-sleeve design shows off the arms of the wearer beautifully, and also makes it a great choice for girls who want to stay modest. This sophisticated dress choice is beautiful and original, and the black color make it universally flattering and slimming, too.
Dress #3: Royal Blue Plunging Neckline High Slit Bridesmaid Dress JVN49580
Simplicity is key with this striking royal blue dress. If you prefer a design that is less embellished and focuses solely on an amazing cut, this is the bridesmaid dress for you. Although it appears to have a very plunging neckline, the magic of its design elements come into play. This dress actually has a sheer nude v-shaped insert, which stretches over the plunge and adds more support. This feature also makes it much easier to wear; you don’t have to worry about the dress slipping or revealing too much during the wedding day. The thigh-high leg slit is modern and sophisticated – it adds a red carpet feel to this figure-skimming design. This is one of our top bridesmaid dress choices because it’s so refined. It’s guaranteed to make the bridesmaids feel extra glamorous – and the color will be a huge hit with everyone since it’s flattering on so many different skin tones.
Dress #4: Fuchsia Embellished Silver Belt Bridesmaid Dress JVN22632
This bright fuchsia dress stands out – and not just for its vibrant pink tone. It also grabs attention because of the embellished silver belt around the waistline, which adds an eye-catching focal point. The flared skirt of this dress also contains a small pocket. It’s perfect for bridesmaids to stash a touch-up lipstick and their phone – who could ask for more?
The bodice has a plunging v-neck which drops to the waistline. Flowing over the shoulders to a concealed back, this dress is structured to show off the figure in a subtle way and places an emphasis on a beautiful shape. We also love how this pink is so vibrant – it echoes the bright fuchsia of a summer peony in bloom.
Dress #5: Purple Mikado Pleated Skirt and Side Cut-Out Long Bridesmaid Dress JVN50071
Color and silhouette make this purple mikado bridesmaid dress one of our top picks for 2017. With a flowing purple pleated ballgown skirt, this dress is so feminine and makes for an original bridesmaid dress choice. The bodice is cut out from the side and also has a plunging front that is structured to support and highlight. Both these features add visual interest to an otherwise simple dress, making it a striking choice for style-forward bridesmaids. The back also has a cutout shape that adds yet another point of interest to this full-length gown. This eye-catching effect can be amplified if the bridesmaid is wearing her hair up to show off a well-toned back. Finally, the waist band creates a flattering contour point and the pleats add flow to the ballgown skirt. This bridesmaid dress takes the best of the current dress trends to create something truly original.
