Stripes have been a major summer trend on ready-to-wear runways and now they’re appearing in bridesmaid dresses. Horizontally-striped dresses are normally associated with nautical and preppy style, and the navy Wtoo dress pictured above, right is no exception. How cute would this style for a summer yacht club wedding? But we also love the vertically-striped Bari Jay for a beach fete – the stripes are so slimming and flattering, and provide a unique ombre effect that we just adore.

Pier 92 was the hub of this season’s New York Bridal Market, full of exciting new wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and accessories. It was so much fun to check out the new collections from mainstays and brand-new design houses. Check out just a sampling of the collections that showed at Pier 92 here:
Bari Jay Bridesmaid Dresses: Love the rainbow of colors in this bridesmaid collection. Our favorites? The black lace peplum mini, the beach-worthy multicolor gown, and the on-trend chartreuse.
Berta Wedding Dresses: These wedding dresses hug the figure in all the right places. It’s definitely a sexy collection, but totally feminine at the same time.
Ivy & Aster Wedding Dresses: We loved how whimsical Ivy & Aster’s dresses are. From a textured tea-length style to a black-and-white feathered mini to a patterned romantic gown, lots of unique styles here.
Olia Zavozina Wedding Dresses: This collection features a mix of form-fitting, glam gowns, and more demure styles. We all swooned over the pink gown featured above.

The black-and-white trend has spread from wedding dresses (hello, Vera Wang!) to bridesmaid styles. We saw several styles for ‘maids that featured white bodices and black skirts – it’s such a chic and modern look. And, particularly when you choose a short black-and-white style, you can totally throw a black blazer over the dress and wear it to work!
What do you think of this trend? Would you choose a black-and-white style for your bridesmaids? To view all of the new looks from New York Bridal Market, visit our Fashion Ideas page.

We saw dozens of bridesmaid dresses during New York Bridal Market, but there were a few trends that definitely emerged. Black or dark-colored lace bridesmaid dresses were featured in most of the collections that we saw, and we must say, we love the look. It’s feminine and flirty, but still feels quite formal – and even a bit edgy. Tell us in in the comments: Would you want your ‘maids to sport this look?

This season, designers were thinking pink when it came to bridesmaid dresses. We saw many dresses in the palest shade of blush (often paired with black for a little edge), but also in shocking tropical pink as well. The pale blush shade would look fantastic at a springtime garden wedding, while we picture the bright pink at a beach wedding in the summertime.
