2014 Bridesmaid Trends - NYC Market

Bridesmaid Trends from NYC Market 2014

In addition to the fabulous new bridal trends we spotted on the runway in New York City, we also witnessed several fun fashions working their way into the 2014 bridesmaid market. Many of our favorite wedding dress trends are now being incorporated into dress designs for the maids. These fashion forward options are quickly changing the bad rap bridesmaid dresses have gotten for several years. Say farewell to the ‘ugly bridesmaid dress’ stereotype and hello to these fun, flirty, and chic options for your girls!

Trendy Tulle
When I think about wedding dresses, one word in particular comes to mind: TULLE! Whether you love the princess-y feel of the fabric or you think it resembles a frosted cupcake, bridal tulle is here to stay…at least for this season. Designers like Amsale and Jenny Yoo have incorporated tulle into their bridesmaid lines. The light weight and breathable fabric takes on a whole new look when sampled in colors other than white!

Fit & Flares
Fit & Flare silhouettes are making their debut in the bridesmaid department this season. This flirty fit tends to be a favorite style for brides, allowing them to show off their figure! Amsale came out with a few fit & flare options in their new tulle fabric for bridesmaids.

Lots of Lace
If you’re a 2014 bride on the hunt for your gown and aren't very fond of lace, you’re out of luck! Just kidding… well, kind of. If you look back at pictures from your mother's wedding, or even your grandma's gown, there’s a pretty good chance the dress had some kind of lace in the design. It has gone in and out of style for many years, but lace is definitely a prevalent trend in the 2014 bridal AND bridesmaid season. LulaKate, Lynn Lugo, Dessy, Amsale, Jenny Yoo, and pretty much every other bridesmaid line out there is using some kind of lace in a variety of colors for their bridesmaid collection.

Illusion Neckline Craze
The illusion neckline provides the same bare look of a strapless gown but adds a little more coverage and support. This dainty and flattering neckline provides subtle sexiness for the fashion forward bride. Illusion necklines have been a huge hit on the bridal runways for a couple years now, and now they're becoming increasingly popular for bridesmaid styles.

A Touch of Sparkle
For the girly-girls out there who love all-things-sparkly, you will adore this fun new trend happening in bridesmaid dresses – embellished belts! Jenny Yoo added a few new bridesmaid belts to their collection this season. This is a great idea if you want to compliment maid's attire to complement the sparkle from the bride’s gown. Glam accessories are positively in this season and very fitting for a classic black-tie wedding.

One thing is for certain, wedding fashions change dramatically with every decade, so it’s no surprise the bridesmaid trends follow suit. All fashions tend to recycle in and out of style, with only the most popular styles lasting multiples seasons. We are excited to see how our Kentucky brides like the new fashions that are coming soon to our boutique. Be on the look out for these chic style options, fun fabrics, and pretty colors!
You can expect these fabulous Spring 2014 styles to arrive at Twirl towards the beginning of February. Call us for any questions about the new dresses or to set up your private appointment (859) 309-2493.

Your girls will love this flirty style with the subtle ruffled neckline. Perfect for the wedding scene or a night out on the town paired with a jean jacket and some cute wedges!

I am in love with this playful polka-dot pattern! The Keira Allegra Polka Dot is a convertible luxe chiffon knee-length dress featuring a twisted strapless bodice; the convertible panels on the skirt can create 15 different necklines!

Coco by Jenny Yoo in metallic jacquard features a strapless bodice with a soft sweetheart neckline.  This is a very elegant look with a super flattering shape. Your girls will be sure to feel like print-cesses while wearing this classy style!

Dress of the Week!

Since attending Bridal market in October, we have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new Amsale bridesmaids samples.  Last week we received the first round of our silk crinkle chiffon gowns and we fell completely in love with this new bold turquoise color by Amsale!  This new color is sampled in one of their new Peplum styles!

This season, Amsale added several new pops of color into the mix of chiffons, and we Twirl Girls couldn't be more excited!  This season is all about color and the new ones from Amsale do not disappoint!

The modified sweetheart neckline is extremely flattering, and the peplum skirt at the waist adds a flare of style that any bridesmaid will love!  This dress includes a sash that can be tied to the front or back (it can also be taken off).

Happy Monday Everyone! Have a fabulous week!

Twirl Lexington Dress of the Week 7-30-10

My favorite dress this week is Amsale G361T.  It's a strapless, floor length bridesmaid dress with a slight sweep train.  There's also crinoline under the skirt which helps the dress hold it's shape, but could be removed if desired.  This dress is for the more formal evening wedding. The dress is elegant and has a traditional feel to it without looking like the stereotypical bridesmaid dress. 

What's really great about this dress is the ruching on the bodice.  It sweeps across the body and cinches at the left side of the waist.  This will emphasize and even create the smallest part of the waist making everyone who wears it look smaller than they actually are.  The fabric is tissue taffeta which feels very smooth and rich.  Another characteristic of tissue taffeta is that it has a lot of dimension to it and light will give it a nice sheen.

The dress is available in 17 sophisticated colors.  It also comes in a short style (G704T) if you're looking for something a little easier to move around in.  You can accessorize this dress with a brooch where the ruching cinches at the waist.  Amsale also offers a wrap in the same fabric and colors for fall and winter weddings when the weather is cooler or for more conservative ladies who desire more coverage.
