Your bridesmaids will look and feel their confident best with these fresh, flattering trends to suit all different personal styles.
Wedding shopping can (and should be!) so much fun, particularly when you have the biggest bridesmaid dress trends of 2023 to choose from.
In 2023, it’s by no means a given that all of your bridesmaids will wear the same dress. Not even the same colour. Not even the same length! It’s a coordinated free-for-all! While going for a traditional ‘same style look’, does create a cohesive overall feel, you need to be quite lucky to find that magic dress that suits everyone’s figures and personalities. It’s perfectly acceptable to have them in mismatched bridesmaid dresses, linked by a common theme.
Bridesmaid try-on sessions are simply a must, even if your sister lives in Aberdeen and your best mate lives in Marbella – set up a girls group chat and agree on your options to order. Then schedule an evening Zoom call and enjoy a fashion show of the biggest bridesmaid trends of 2023! Our forecast brings you the very best of big wedding fashion, which you can then adapt to suit your girls’ individual styles.
The Biggest Bridesmaid Dress Trends of 2023
Ruffles are going to be even bigger in 2021 – in terms of both size and popularity. If you want a romantic bridesmaid look, choose floral ruffles. For something edgier, go for a single colour, or a colour block for extra fashion points.
The sleek bridesmaid dress is set to be one of the major trends in 2023. If you want your bridesmaids to look and feel super elegant, a little sassy and be gifted a style to wear again and again – this trend is for you.
Since the pandemic, comfort has risen up the fashion agenda, and is still set to play a key part in bridesmaid dress trends for 2023. We’re not talking about maids in ‘athleisure’, this trend is all about the fabrics and how they feel against the skin. From butter-soft silks and satins to sumptuous velvet, the key word is ‘strokeable’.
The New Boho Bridesmaids
Boho is a firm wedding favourite, for both décor and outfits. It’s a multi-faceted look, bringing in elements of ’70s style, natural fabrics, flowing silhouettes and jewelled touches. For 2023, the folk element of Boho is going to be dialled up, as seen on the catwalk at Chloé. We’re talking white with bright patterns, embroidery and tassels.
Bridesmaid Biker Jackets
As seen on the Dior and Fendi catwalks, bridesmaid biker jackets are set to be big fashion news. A leather jacket is a great way to add edge to a floaty bridesmaid dress, as well as co-ordinating the overall look.
The Joy of Nature
The great outdoors will certainly be embraced next year, with people still enjoying the delights discovered in the English countryside during Covid. Expect 2023 fashion to reflect this, with a mood that celebrates all that nature brings us – think exuberant florals, fruit-based prints and juicy hues.
Fashion writers are predicting silver will be the metallic of 2023. This is good news for bridesmaids because it’s a suit-everyone hue that can look glamorous, pretty or pared-back, depending on the style you choose.
Red Bridesmaid Dresses
Next year, expect to see red mixed into different patterns and put against other hues for a soft yet still powerful look. It’s a lucky colour in many cultures, and we think it’ll bring your girls joy in 2023.
