Gone are the days, when bridesmaids would find themselves cringing at the thought of being asked to be a bridesmaid at their friends wedding, because often times such a honored invitation would accompany, the bride’s excited statement of having found the “perfect dress and color” for her bridal party.
Nine times out of ten, the perfect dress would turn out to be a combination of hideous style and the worst possible color, even so out of friendship loyalties and wanting to make the bride happy, bridesmaids everywhere would endure the pain suffering task of handing over money to purchase a dress, that they on a ordinary day would never wear, and on a not so ordinary day wished they didn’t have to wear.
But thank you Bridesmaids Fashion Designers everywhere, for collectively you have all managed to replace cringes with excitement, as bridesmaids continue to enjoy the latest and most trendiest styles in bridesmaids dresses.
2011 is representative even more creative expression and flare in bridesmaids dresses, as it is in bridal wear designs, as designers use their talents to design a line of dresses that are body friendly and amazingly flattering.
From, bridesmaids, including junior bridesmaids and maternity bridesmaids, variation in style is truly the spice of life and the rainbow of colors, is the crème de la crème that pulls it all together.
Bridesmaids, petite, slender, full figured, can find styles that range from traditionally formal floor lengths to above the knee cocktail and it is all totally acceptable, as comfort, style, individuality and mixed colors, all have a place in 2011 bridesmaids fashion designs.
As with 2011 bridal wear, strapless and off the shoulder designs still remains a popular choice for style, as does asymmetrical draping. Over the shoulder removable straps, add versatile appeal, by creating a economically budget friendly one dress, two options look.
Detailing, consists of variations in ruched bodice and the use of fabric floral embellishments.
Fabrics continue to hold old on to old time favorites, of Silks, Satin, Taffeta, Chiffon, and Charmeuse.
Colors are totally beautiful and complimentary, and the metallic colors are a personal favorite. That being said, there is color for everyone, from traditional teal, Rose, blues, reds and navy, to new colors, like Shamrock, Cognac, Cornflower, Tulips and Jalapeno.
In summary I believe that 2011 Bridesmaid fashion is about to pave the way for more unusual combinations of color and style, and may even lead to some interesting three dimensional designs and embellishments, as is now seen in 2011 bridal.
