My pick for this week is a long bridesmaids’ dress (rare for me!), but I love this one for a few different reasons. It is by Occasions, a division of JLM Couture. This company’s name may not be too familiar to you, but they are a multi-label bridal house engaged in the design of bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses. The company’s bridal gown collections are Alvina Valenta, Hayley Paige, Jim Hjelm Blush, Jim Hjelm, Lazaro, and Tara Keely. The bridesmaid collections are Alvina Valenta Bridesmaids, Jim Hjelm Occasions, and Noir by Lazaro…definitely designers most have heard of!
Anyway, back to the dress! This one is a chiffon A-line bridesmaid gown, cowl draped neckline, natural waist, and a wrap skirt with side front slit. The dress comes in thirty colors that range from brights to neutrals. The cowl neckline and front slit give this dress crafted from a traditional fabric a sexy edge. I love it paired with an amazing shoe (as pictured above)!
This simple, but elegant edgy dress also comes in white and ivory. Why do I specifically point out these hues? Because some brides are seeking a dress without the “princess” look of beading and a full skirt. For that simply sophisticated bride who craves clean lines, this dress could fit the bill!
As an added bonus, it would be way less expensive than most dresses that are designed to be “wedding gowns”.
Regardless of whether you love this exact dress, do keep this tip in mind if you are a bride in search of a simpler dress! Browse through the bridesmaid racks and catalogs and ask if your favorite dress comes in white or ivory!
