Black Dresses your Bridesmaids Will Love to Wear
30 Oct 2015
With dark nights looming and Halloween just around the corner, we get into the (ghostly) spirit of things to show you some daring black bridesmaid dresses with a difference – your bridesmaids will actually want to wear them
Dark and sultry silhouettes are always a style winner, and are especially flattering for differing body shapes. With black designs, bridesmaids have the advantage of wearing their gown again for future occasions or events should they want to. The addition of black tulle, beads, lace, knots and sparkle can offer a chic, sophisticated flair to bridal affairs.
We’ve compiled an array of black gowns that are ideal for this spooky time of year, without a drop of fake blood or a zombie in sight…or even the horror of puffed sleeves…
Margot Necklace Dress
This limited edition slinky black number is a floor-length maxi made from matte jersey with a slightly forgiving stretch. The ruching and delicate back beading gives this understated glamour.
Jenny Packham Elisa Dress
For brides inspired by’50s style, this knee-length skater skirt dress reflects the era with an added touch of glitz.
Classic Two Birds Dress
If there’s one thing this London-made dress doesn’t lack, its versatility. Wrap it 15 different ways so no matter the shape of your bridesmaid, there will be a fit to suit. Our favourite is the Grecian, one- shoulder style.
Jaeger Lace Maxi Dress
A dramatic sheer black lace neckline channels grown-up glamour in this floor-length gown with a cinched waist and subtle side split.
Adrianna Papell Satin Cap Sleeve Fishtail Dress
Wearing a curvy, fishtail bridal gown? Bridesmaids can match the style with this similar silhouette with added crepe panels and sheer tulle inserts.
Ghost Hollywood Taylor Black Dress
Simple tailoring never fails. The bias cut of this Ghost gown results in a flattering skimming effect with diagonal waistline panels and a vintage edge. This dress will make each bridesmaid feel like a movie star.
True Decadence Bow Pleat Maxi
The empire line of this design means it suits women of all shapes and sizes and the price tag is an added bonus for brides on a budget.
£60, True Decadence
