With just a few months to go until wedding season really kicks off let's take a look at the latest bridesmaids dresses to hit Coast this season.

Overall Themes

Bridesmaid's dresses this season are like little pieces of origami. Folded sections of material are turned into bows, corsages and pleats. The overall aesthetic is luxurious, creative and flattering. The colour scheme is a mixture of warm nudes and striking rich colours of purple, red and green. As usual with Coast most dress styles come in both maxi and mid lengths, however, the trend seems to be long, luscious and ethereal.

Hot Pick: Long

One of our favourite bridesmaid's dresses is the Inica Duchess Satin Maxi Dress. Elegant, sophisticated and flattering, with structured folding that shows off a slim waist.Graceful and wearable, the skirt is subtly fishtailed and exudes classic Hollywood glamour. The soft, oyster hue is right on trend this season and will perfectly complement a white or ivory wedding dress.

Hot Pick: Short

If you prefer something a little shorter then the Constance Dress is a perfect choice. Simply divine this 100% silk dress is fun, flirty, elegant and fitting. The A-line shape offers maximum flexibility in terms of body shape and will flatter bridesmaids of any age and size. The folded bow detail at the bust is a striking feature and beautifully shapes a feminine silhouette.

Top Tip

There is no one size or shape that fits all. Some bridesmaids will prefer floor length dresses whilst others will only wear shorter, knee-length styles. Take advantage of Coast's length variations and work with similar tonal hues to create a visually gorgeous aesthetic.
