It goes without saying that we see tons of bridesmaid trends here at the Shoppe. The biggest trend of the last few years has definitely been short or knee-length strapless dresses for ‘maids, but we are seeing a huge swing in favor of elegant floor-sweeping gowns, and we couldn’t be happier! We particularly love the look of a long bridesmaid gown in soft, flowy chiffon, with an interesting neckline or strap option, like a v-neck. Why? We’ll tell you! Your ladies will love wearing long v-neck bridesmaid dresses in Bari Jay Shadow! So you’re looking for a long gown with a v-neck. Have you thought about color? I’m smitten with Bari Jay Shadow, a soft bluish gray. Gray has also been a very popular trend in bridal party fashion as of late, and it’s easy to see why: it’s a versatile neutral that’s softer and often more flattering than black. Find your perfect hue and design!>> What’s so great about v-neck bridesmaid dresses? V-necks are fantastic; they elongate your torso and draw attention to your pretty neck and collarbone, giving you the perfect opportunity to show off a great necklace or some fabulous earrings. This neckline is flattering on just about any body type or bustline, and often these styles are bra-friendly (such as style 649 above). The other really cool thing about v-necks is that there are tons of different ways to vary the straps in the back of the dress: criss-cross, scoop, and keyhole, just to name a few. With so many styles, you’re sure to find the perfect long bridesmaid gown. Of course, these are just a few of the great v-neck styles available from Bari Jay—you can see the rest of the Bari Jay v-neck collection, as well as all v-neck bridesmaid gowns, at WeddingShoppeInc.com. Have a question about any of the styles you see here, or wondering about which styles would be perfect for your ‘maids? Let us know! We’d love to hear from you!
