Update yourself on this Spring’s best bridesmaid dresses to source a style that you and your girls will love…
Square Neck Strap
A square neckline is a Spring staple, it’s everywhere from tees to evening gowns. This shape is actually incredibly flattering on every frame, making it amazing for a bridesmaid dress! Look for square necklines in strappy styles, just ensure that the dress’ fabric is cut from something a little luxurious such as silk or satin. This will avoid the pieces looking too casual in contrast to your wedding dress. A crisp and sharp square neck strap frock is ideal for contemporary weddings.
