Trend Alert: Bridesmaid Separates!

Time for some fashion, lovelies! One of the trends that I am LOVING at the moment for bridesmaids is separates – everything from crop tops to more demure shirts and skirts, flirty tea length tulle, and maxi beauties. This was originally going to be a general bridesmaid separates inspiration post, but when I started researching it, I found that there was one label that was popping up again and again for the coming season – I always love Coast‘s bridesmaid offerings, but they’re knocking it out of the park at the moment with this look. Exhibit A: their first separates style a couple of years back, which I pinned and which has been repinned a gazillion times, but if anything, the new styles are even more fabulous. So I just had to show them off! (This post includes affiliate links. The cost to you remains the same, but SBB may receive a commission on any sales.)

Coast Bridesmaid Stylebook Autumn/Winter 2015

So, earlier this year I shared Coast‘s Spring/Summer lookbook, and it landed up being a hugely popular post – I guess, like me, you all are inspired by the pretty signature collection of laces and silks, bows and beads, tops and skirts – and a touch of sparkle of course! Now Coast have their latest lookbook online (Autumn/Winter 2015), and some of the latest lovelies already in store. The three main looks are Classic & Chic (think glamour, monochrome, pops of red, floral embroidery and luxe fabrics), Frosted Wonderland (light chiffon, sparkling embellishment, and ethereal pastel shades like pale blush, ivory and champagne), and Luxe Romance (rich jewel tones, fluid shapes, elegance and romance!) and although they have a bit more of a cold weather vibe for the chillier seasons, they could actually work for many types of weddings. Some of these dresses are seriously special – I could even see them showing up as a bride’s dress or a reception gown. So let’s get inspired! As always, click on any of the images to shop.

Coast Bridesmaid Stylebook Spring/Summer 2015

**UPDATE: You can find the latest Coast Autumn/Winter Stylebook here**

With the Oscars happening as I type this, it’s the time of the year when gorgeous red carpet fashion is on everyone’s minds. I like to think of weddings as a chance for brides and bridesmaids to have a little red carpet moment of their own – after all, it isn’t every day you get your hair and makeup done! And I couldn’t help but think, when I saw Coast‘s newest selection of wedding-worthy gowns, that they’d be well at home at a glamorous gala, especially since they incorporate all of my favourite current trends. From sparkle to cutouts, skirts and tops to sweet pastels, lace to two-tone, it’s all here. Not all the dresses in the new Coast Bridesmaid Stylebook are online just yet, but be sure to check out their website for the latest news and links. But be quick! I have a feeling these will get snapped up.Read More
