Calling All Brides! Check the Latest Summer Bridesmaid Dress Trends
Even if the pandemic had hit hard for the past months, there’s nothing stopping love from happening. And as the famous song would say, love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage.
If your big event is coming up but there are fewer Bride saloons and festivals to check out the latest news on the matter, we are here to help you get some inspiration. We know that the bridesmaid dresses are paramount to the event, the number one point of interest, so they should reflect your (and their) style and taste.
Check out below the latest bridesmaid dress trends for the occasion. As a comment, this year it’s all about individuality and uniqueness – and we are talking about the individuality of colors and uniqueness of style and luxury of fabrics.
2021 Standout Summer Bridesmaid Dress Colors
This is probably the hardest decision when talking about bridesmaid dresses, and not only for this year. As the theme is paramount for the whole puzzle, consider that these dresses are going to show up in most wedding pictures.
The hottest trends in colors for bridesmaid dress trends this year are (and you will be surprised), the neutral tones – cream, beiges, and powder pink, completing with the sorbet pastel color palette. The next in line is the classical burgundy (one of our favorite). And don’t forget to add to your list of potential color themes the Pantone for this year – namely the combination yellow and grey.
There is no surprise in this – the neutral tones make for very romantic, elegant, stylish, relaxed, and summer-ish dresses. Cream and beiges are perfect for tones of tan, as well as the glowing powder pink, truly feminine and forever-young. But the sorbet pastel colors are groundbreaking – pastels of mint green, baby blue, or violet can give the touches you want to contrast with the white wedding dress. Burgundy is the natural choice for organizers who know what they want, and, as a comment, is easy to style and accessorize. And the color-of-the-year picked by Pantone can be a challenge to work within a bridesmaid setting, but not impossible for the well-versed creators.
What Fabric to Choose for your Summer Bridesmaid Dress
While preparing for the big event, we shouldn’t neglect fabrics, and while doing that we will look a little to the 2021 famous trends for the season – satin or eco-cotton, tulle, and crepe.
Satin items make affordable bridesmaid dresses and go perfect for slip dresses as well as maxi dresses, which can be tailored for a large variety of body figures and complexions.
The eco-cotton is a more recent trend in the bridesmaid dress district and is a sensational option for a minimalist cut on monochrome tones or rather neutral ones.
The tulle is one of the classical fabrics for bridesmaid dresses and is the obvious choice for princess cuts, asymmetries, and romantic looks.
And finally, crepe is one of the most versatile fabrics there are, if not the most versatile. And this is a very inspired option for long dresses, midi ones, slit cuts, and others.
Finally – Style, All the Way
We hint that you don’t match, but mix! Leaving things to the imagination of your best friends who are to accompany the bride on her special days can result in a memorable mix of personalities and tastes.
As dress cuts, we would recommend the slip dress (preferable in satin or silk), the maxi dress – which is versatile and feminine, elegant and perfect for a black-tie city wedding, as well as for a garden wedding party and long dresses with a side slit.
And don’t forget, for 2021, the open back is a breakthrough on the catwalk, and we are seeing more and more returns to the 1990s on famous runways in the form of an ode to minimalism – even if we are, for now, seeing them digitally.
