So, what’s new for bridesmaids in 2019?
The trend for mix and match continues apace, and Onlyway is one step ahead of the game, offering no less than 42 colours, with dresses that can be tied 15 fabulous ways. Designed and made in the UK – it’s perfectly on trend to buy British – using the finest of fabrics, Onlyway are leading the way with a huge range of styles for every size, shape and age. Here’s what our 200 boutique stockists tell us:
Easywear continues to be big news. While the complete look matters, comfort is everything. Weddings are action-packed and huge fun, but a very long day that demands an outfit to feel good from daybreak til dawn the next day (if necessary!).
While comfort is key, fashion, colour and fun are important, too. Jewel colours have banished the blush – taking over from the pretty pastels, here come sapphire, plum, wine, navy and mustard hues. Continue to mix and match for best results.
Underwear lines, and sneaky bra straps are a thing of the past when you choose Onlyway, with dresses that skim, fit and flare past every line, lump and bump, meaning that each bridesmaid can wear the underwear of her choice. Bridesmaids with baby bumps can also wear Onlyway with confidence and complete comfort.
It’s the cap sleeve comeback! 2018 was all about the halterneck, so it’s good to see some old-fashioned coverage back again.
Time for tea-length. The way dresses are tied at the top matters, but what goes on at the bottom of the dress does too. Tea-length hems are more practical than floor-skimming numbers, of course, and often more flattering for certain body shapes and younger bridesmaids. Subtle lace detail will soften the look and tie in with a vintage theme.
Mean feet – you will want your bridesmaids to hit the dancefloor and stay put, so opt for a heel height they can wear all night long, or dish out the flats to get the party started. Metallics continue to be the shoe shade of choice – silver is the most versatile of colours, the perfect complement to the ultra-versatile Onlyway dress.
