One of the latest 2017/2018 bridesmaids trends is 'high low' bridesmaids dresses. A "High Low" dress has a shorter hem in the front of a dress or skirt and a longer hem in the back. This style of dress is very versatile as the shorter hem on the front doesn't swamp smaller, petite frames yet is equally gorgeous on and popular among our taller bridesmaids. We currently stock two different styles of high low bridesmaids dresses in the boutique, both which can be styled very differently and are suited to two different styles of wedding.
The first is our gorgeous After Six 6718 style from Dessy. This bridesmaids dress features a beautiful halter neckline with full length matte satin skirt and hi-low hem detail. It also comes with a little belt which matches the skirt colour...which brings us to one of our favourite features of this dress- the wide range of colours its available in. You can opt for a two tone dress with different colour bodice and skirt or all one colour. The monochrome look featured below is particularly popular in this style. The fabric and full skirt in this dress make it suitable for a more formal, traditional themed wedding. Oh and did we mention...it has pockets...a favourite with bridesmaids!
The second High Low Bridesmaids dress we have in the boutique is this beauty from Sorella Vita. This bridesmaids dress is perfectly suited to a more casual, beachside wedding. It features a crossed-sweetheart bodice and delicate spaghetti straps. The wrapped skirt has an asymmetrical dipped hem. Again this bridesmaids dress is available in lots of colour options though, the coral and mint greens are our favourites in this gown!
We would style both these looks quite differently! With the Dessy bridesmaids dress we would keep the look very simple and elegant but with a pop of colour. We have chosen a beehive wedding hair style, matching blue shoe and flowers that complement the tones in the dress and pull everything together.
The Sorella Vita gown we would style much more casually with simple flowers, pops of colour on the nails, we particularly love mint and gold together so we would suggest gold accessories with this dress. The groomsmen suits then kept that little more casual also to reflect the bridesmaids look also!
What do you think of the high-low trend, do you love it as much as us? Both of these bridesmaids’ dresses are available to try on in our boutique in Donegal. Feel free to contact us if you would like more information!
