Bridesmaid Dress Trends 2021

For 2020, bridesmaid dresses are more fashion-forward than ever. Popular colors range dramatically from muted nudes and pastel tones to dark shades of navy and aubergine. The most on-trend cut is no doubt the one-shoulder fitted silhouette with a mermaid dress tail end. Also popular, is the romantic off-the-shoulder look which suits many body types. Another huge trend is for brides to pick mix and match dresses for their bridesmaids. This gives each girl the chance to pick a custom dress that best suits her. Often there is only a color theme or one particular element that connects all the bridesmaid dresses. This is a great choice if all your bridesmaids have very different body types and tastes.

This pretty piece is a great option because it suits so many different body types. Its crystal-embellished belt adds just the right touch of sparkle to complete the simple, sophisticated dress design. Its light pink color is sweet and girly and is a great complement to your pristine white bridal look.

To complete your look, just add a great pair of nude or blush heels. For the beauty look, a wavy loose hairstyle and chandelier earrings. As a bonus, this is the kind of bridesmaid dress that your girls will be able to wear again and again.
