5 Bridesmaid Dress Trends Your Gals Will Love

No matter the size of your wedding party, bridesmaid dresses are a great way to show your style. They can also be a beautiful way to flaunt your wedding colors. And the styles we’ve seen pop up for fall 2014 have been no different. We’ve put together a list of the most interesting, eye-catching trends for the season.


Back cutouts aren’t just for bridal gowns anymore. These fresh accents can bring a new spin to a classically cut dress or play up the drama of the color. This subtly sexy detail adds intrigue, but won’t make your brides- or groomsmaids feel like they’re showing too much skin. Dress by Watters, available at weddingtonway.com for $214


Asymmetrical detailing—especially one-shoulder dresses—is hot. The variety offered by this cut is almost unlimited, and lends itself to almost any wedding. Dress by Amsale, price available upon request


Belts are a flattering way to dress up a more casual look. This accessory works with both long and short dresses, making it a great touch for almost any style. Bonus: brides- or groomsmaids part with a fashionable accessory. Dress by Donna Morgan, available at Nordstrom for $189


Gunmetal gray is a great color choice for soonlyweds who want a dramatic color that’s not too dark. Choosing a chiffon, tulle and lace dress can add a softer edge to the color. Dress by Adrianna Papell, available at Nordstrom for $298


Sequins are everywhere right now. If you’re looking to add a sparkly flare to your wedding, consider a sequined accent, skirt or dress to infuse the day’s fashion with your own flare. Dress by Alfred Angelo, price upon request
