Sometimes being a bridesmaid isn’t all about pared down minimalist elegance. That’s not to say we should bring back the hideous bridesmaid style styles of the eighties though! A cool compromise is going for a more detailed dress in a subtle shade. This works particularly well for ‘evening colours’ such as navy, burgandy, red and deep inky green. Venus Bridal have got this trend sewn in up with a garnet coloured dress featuring a pick-up skirt (shown left) and styles with great detailing and shapes that are a little more exciting than simple plain frocks and are perfect for the coming autumn/winter months.
