A Bridesmaid Look Your Girls Will Actually Wear Again (Seriously)


For a fresh spin on the traditional bridesmaids' look, outfit your attendants in a cute skirt-and-top ensemble. The less-formal two-piece outfit is perfect for more causal weddings, like a backyard celebration or a rustic wedding in a barn. Best of all, your bridesmaids are much more likely to wear the outfits again. Here are our favorite skirt-and-top combinations.

Long Skirts in the Same Color (above): Solid-color skirts look great paired with simple white tops.

Patterned Skirts: Knee-length skirts in different patterns add a dash of fun — these preppy, striped ones are perfect for a country club wedding.

Mix-and-Match Skirts: Start with a color palette and then mix and match, like these copper and cream skirts in sequins and lace.

Same Skirts, Different Tops: If you already have a skirt in mind, you could let your bridesmaids pick their own tops and blouses in the same hue.

Different Shades of a Single Color (above): Outfit your bridesmaids in floor-length skirts in complementary shades of a single color for a coordinated look.

Skirts & Cardigans: If you're having an outdoor ceremony, add a cute cardigan to their skirt-and-top ensemble so your bridesmaids can keep warm (these shades are perfect for fall!).
