Traditionally, the role of the bridesmaid at a wedding is to assist the bride on her big day. And while bridesmaids need to look dazzling, it is important that they don't overshadow the bride herself. That being said, many designers have created exquisite bridesmaid dresses that can work with a variety of different wedding themes, bridal tastes and modern wedding styles. Read on to get a glimpse at some of the best!
For a classic look that doesn't skimp on glamour, take a look at the stunning espresso silk V-neck bridesmaid dress from Ann Taylor. This gorgeous piece is made from a stylish and breathable silk taffeta fabric and features both a V-neck front and plunging V-style back as well. The sleeveless construction works with a variety of different types of accessories, while the fitted waist flatters you in a flirty and fun way. In addition to being fitted, this dress also features fun pleats, which add flourish and style to the look. Depending on how accessorized you want to be, this dress also comes with a removable and matching grosgrain sash to be wrapped around your waist. A hidden zipper on the side provides a discreet way to zip up. Wear this with an updo and subtle jewelry for a put-together look.
When it comes to creating a classic and feminine look, try looking for bridesmaid dresses with ruffles and draped lines for an unbeatable style. The Lilyanna dress from JCPenney uses all of these elements with panache, and features a gorgeous side-gathered detail that will turn heads. Made with a comfortable and breathable polyester chiffon material, the Lilyanna uses a crisscross bodice front, where a carefully placed fold culminates in a detailed gather. Sleeveless, the Lilyanna also features a ruffled hem that hits at about the mid-thigh level. For a modern and fresh look, wear your hair down with the Lilyanna, and use fun bangles or long earrings to create an inspired yet audaciously feminine look.
When you are looking for a dramatic bridesmaid dress that comes dangerously close to stealing the spotlight from the bride, take a look at the Moonlight bridesmaid dress from Val Stefani. Featuring large ruched sweeps of fabric and delicate, subtle detailing, the Moonlight dress is a classic floor length A-line dress. Made from a comfortable and breathable chiffon fabric, the Moonlight is available in dozens of different colors, which makes matching the bridesmaids' dresses with the wedding theme a breeze. Sleeveless, the Moonlight also features ruching on the bust, as well as a V-neck that will flatter any body shape.
