Coast Picks: 5 Bridesmaid Trends

Bridalwear

Known as the ultimate occasionwear destination, Coast knows a thing or two about wedding outfits. We teamed up with Coast to give you their insight into the bridesmaid trends you and your leading ladies will love. Whether your wedding dress code is super traditional or quirky and unconventional, you’ll be inspired by Coast’s newest bridesmaid collection. 

  1. LUXE FABRICS

Make the aisle their red carpet with show-stopping satin or silk bridesmaid dresses. A beautiful choice for a vintage-inspired wedding theme, these ultra-luxe fabrics nod to styles of the past. Flared angel sleeves and off-the-bias skirts in satin ooze Old Hollywood luxury, while silken slips will embrace their inner Gatsby girl! When it comes to the colour palette, highlight the elegant fabric with equally elegant hues. Pick our grey, burgundy or navy bridesmaid dresses for a retro glam look. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. JEWEL TONES 

It’s a fact, pastels are a wedding go-to. But for colder months, look to our gorgeous gem hues to make your leading ladies shine! Whether it’s a black-tie dress code or cocktail attire, deep jewel tones are a winner for any autumn and winter wedding. From emerald green bridesmaid dresses to amethyst purple styles, these jewelled shades flatter every skin tone to perfection. Whether you opt for one singular shade or complementary colours, your bridesmaids are set to dazzle from ceremony to dance floor.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. KEEP IT SIMPLE 

Is your wedding theme contemporary and minimal? Then say ‘I do!’ to this bridesmaid trend. Forget the frills and take a no-fuss approach to your bridesmaid styling. Proving simple is often best, our pared-back yet flattering silhouettes are designed to make everyone feel confident on the special day. Opt for blue bridesmaid dresses in super-sleek, on-trend halternecks or even classic, column-skirted styles. For a winter wedding, why not go for simple black bridesmaid dresses? It may be a little unexpected, but this hue is flattering on everyone – plus, it makes the perfect contrast against your white dress. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. SHORT DRESSES 

Bring a little fun to every aspect of your wedding – even with the bridesmaid dresses. A playful take on classic styles, our shorter bridesmaid dresses show that good things come in small packages. Up the romance factor in our pink bridesmaid dresses in elegant midi lengths, alongside minis made wedding ready with ruffles and twirl-able skirts. This super-modern trend is also the perfect way to showcase your bridesmaids’ personalities. Take advantage of shorter lengths and let them accessorise each dress with shoes of their choice! 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. MIX AND MATCH 

It can be a struggle to find a dress to suit every body type (and taste!), so the mix and match trend is just the thing to keep all of your bridesmaids happy. Going for a fun and quirky vibe? Then go with completely different styles! However, for a more cohesive look, tie together the dresses with similar lengths or colours. We love a gradient palette for a super-romantic ombré effect. And why not create textural interest with dresses in different fabrics? Bridesmaid dresses with alternate embellishment and tulle are a match ‘maid’ in heaven…
