Statement Sleeves

While sleeves became the “it” trend for brides a few years ago, this look is now making its way into 2019 bridesmaid dresses, too! Balloon sleeves, bishop sleeves and even bell sleeves complement almost any type of dress style and are a great choice for bridesmaids that are in fall or winter weddings.

Nostalgia Rose Is The New Blush

Blush has been the “it” color when it comes to classic bridesmaid dresses, however this season we saw a richer hue hit the runways—Nostalgia Rose. It’s still a pink but with hints of purple and was seen in almost every 2019 bridesmaid dress collection. The deeper and darker pink is an upgrade from the soft and girly blushes we’ve seen in the past.

Velvet is Back!

Calling all '90s obsessed brides and bridesmaids, velvet is making a comeback in the fashion world and we’re digging it for 2019 bridesmaid dresses. Instead of lighter fabrics like chiffon, velvet adds a bit of drama to your wedding party look—especially for fall or winter weddings. The luxe fabric can also be worn in a variety of colors, so you can easily mix and match your bridesmaid dresses, as well.

Tied Shoulders

We’ve seen cold-shoulders be a popular choice for bridesmaid dresses, but this year we think shoulders will get extra attention—thanks to the tied shoulder trend. Tied shoulders give 2019 bridesmaid dresses a flirty look that’s perfect for outdoor ceremonies. The ties also can be adjusted, which lets ‘maids play around with different lengths and bow styles.

Wrap Dresses

We also saw comfort play a major factor for designers when it comes to 2019 bridesmaid dresses. Wrap dresses, which are known for being universally flattering, were seen in a variety of collections and were also seen in short and long dresses. These styles help fit and flatter all body types and were paired with flutter or off-the-shoulder sleeves to evoke a flirty look for this season.
