I have a confession to make. I’ve never been the biggest fan of black dresses for bridesmaids. I loveeee myself a LBD, and I’ve worn many to weddings before. But, I don’t know, I just like to see some color on a bride squad. All this being said, I wore a black bridesmaid dress for my best friend’s wedding in September, and it looked pretty effing amazing. Like, as a group, we looked 👌. So, I’ve definitely come around on the idea. Took me a while to get there, but now that I’m on board with black gowns for the girls, I’ve become kind of obsessed.
The bosses in the bridal/maids world - from Jenny Yoo to Dessy, Revelry to Hayley Paige - have been showing up for this all-black party for years. And yet, they’re still turning out some of the sickest onyx ensems for the entourage. Not just on-point for Halloween, either, these black dresses are insanely wearable for every wedding season: winter, spring, summer or fall.
Plus, some other things we 🖤 about the moody mode for maids:
If you’re doing a mix and match motif with the girls, black is mixed media MAJOR. You can do all-over sequins for your MOH or dress her in solid black while the rest of the pretties wear black prints.
If you don’t want to go made-to-order for your bridesmaids, you can find some awesome black RTW fashions for them with noooo trouble at all, because black is black is black.
If you’re looking for something that’s flattering for every girl in your gang, then black is your best bet. Truly, you can’t pick a more shape-friendly shade.
