The festive season is looming and it’s time to choose a party frock, but it’s also planning season in full swing for the winter brides out there. Todays city chic wedding makes me think of the most stylish maids in cocktail attire, looking and feeling fabulous, but where can you find perfect party frocks, special enough for a Bridesmaids dress, without breaking the bank?
Coast had become a little, dare I say it… predictable for Bridesmaids (and I think I’m allowed to, as my own Bridesmaids wore Coast) but a recent flick through the website left me pleasantly surprised and I just had to share some options for the chicest maids, prettiest parties and general festive flirtations 😉
Navy remains one of my all time favourite colours for bridesmaids. Perennially chic, suited to all seasons and just a general all round winner, it’s classic whilst remaining modern.
I’m particularly loving the old gold colours here with Navy, a really subtle and sophisticated pallet suited to the colder months and a hefty dose of city chic.
I’m really loving the idea of bridesmaids wearing shorter frocks these days… the short skirt revolution is nothing new, but cocktail styles and grown up maids are a match made in chic heaven…
Though most of these are well suited to a winter months affair, I can see the purple with floral details at a fun summer celebration with jewels tones and bright shoes.
Whilst black is not my favourite shade for a bridesmaid, monochrome is a totally different ball game and there are occasions and settings where it can look timeless, modern and up to date in the style stakes. Super stylish, these designs would look just as at home on a summers day as in a winter warmer of a wedding day.
Add glitzy accessories, wrist corsages and a statement clutch for modern maids in monochrome.
Want to ramp up the glamour with a bit of va va voom for your maids? Channelling a retro vintage look? Then tell me these gowns are not a vision of elegance? I’m particularly loving the central dress from the Coast Couture range… could almost be straight out of a forties movie.
I’m thinking heels, gloves, furs and hollywood hair. Simply divine Daahling… 😉
Head over to Coast to see if your party dress solution awaits…
