Be it metallic or beaded, bridesmaid dresses are getting done up with belts this season. The added flair is easy to love – especially when it visually cinches the waist.

Steele Blue & Gray

It may be summer, but these colors are still front & center. The totally gray and grayish blue hues are elegant and timeless, no matter the season.

Interesting Back Details

From low back-dresses to keyhole details and strappy gowns, modern bridesmaid dresses are getting a style upgrade and showing off a bit more skin. This trend is perfect for the bridesmaids wearing their hair up!


In peek-a-boo accents or all over, lace is making it’s way into bridesmaid dresses in a big way – and we are all about it! The fabric is romantic and flattering on everyone. Plus, the added texture looks great in photographs!
