Black is the new black. Okay okay, so bright and bold hues were forecasted to be this year's hottest trend but don't be fooled because the absence of color is definitely back full force. This staple wardrobe color can be styled to be romantic, classic, modern, retro, or even boho. And since black flatters any figure it only makes sense to don your leading ladies with a gorgeous little black number she will definitely wear again. Pair your dresses with some strappy sandals or daring colored pumps for a splash of color. Contrasting monochromatic bouquets also look stunning next to the dark backdrop created by a simple black gown. For more daring brides, hand your girls a black color swatch with your dress length preference and let them pick their own gown. Giving your girls the freedom to pick their own dress is the perfect way to get a wedding day wardrobe that will be cohesive yet unique. To help with your hunt for the perfect little black dress, here are a few of our favorite must-have frocks.
Classic bridesmaids dresses have a simple and understated elegance to them. From timeless A-lines and simple sheaths to strapless floor length gowns, you can't go wrong with a classic little black dress. (Left to right: J.Crew, Jim Hjelm, J.Crew, Dessy)
