Bridesmaid Dresses with Sexy Details
Everyone loves to show off a little bit of skin, whether it's a deep plunging V-neck, open back, or thigh-high slit. But what makes something even sexier is the subtlest hint of flesh, a tiny illusion here or snippet there to keep 'em wanting more. Which is why one of the biggest bridesmaid dress trends right now is peek-a-boo details.
From the cutouts that have become almost a standard in evening wear to a keyhole neckline and illusion strip at the waist, there are many tasteful, subtle, and most importantly fashion-forward ways to rock a bridesmaid's dress with peek-a-boo details. These architectural touches and understated embellishments add a ton of dimension, texture and, of course, intrigue to an otherwise simple silhouette. We think even Grandma would approve!
Designers are turning it up a notch with cutouts at the neckline, asymmetrical cutouts along the bodice, and even an additional cutout below a super-deep V. Your personal peek-a-boo doesn't have to be fully absent of fabric, though. Dresses with illusion mesh slits or stunning lace numbers without lining across sections of the silhouette offer up the same excitement as a full-fledged cutout.
