I want to make a bold claim today. I think its possible for bridesmaids to wear something as traditional and potentially risky as long navy blue dresses without looking like they’re going to prom or maybe worse….the cliched bridesmaid. To me, the secret is in picking gowns that are glamorous and draping AND not over-doing it on the hair and makeup. If you pick stiff dresses and give them stiff, too-perfect hair and too much makeup, you’re headed for dangerous waters. Instead, aim for a more effortlessly chic look that says ‘I’m totally comfortable and myself in this amazing gown.’ There’s my two cents. :)
