Pretty muted pastel colors on these Grecian inspired bridesmaid formal dresses. I love how simple they are so it depends on the wearer on how will they give it character and style. If I were to wear one, I'd probably either make it look like I'm a guardian fairy from a forest or a highborn lady from the regency era. Basic pieces like this are indeed very versatile.
Two of my favorite materials - french lace and soft tulle, in my most favorite color - peach blush, with my most favorite neckline - sweetheart! This dress is a dream come true. I love how the open back balances out the sweet and demure look to give it a pinch of sexiness thus giving out a mature/grown-up woman impression. I would probably wear it with a petticoat though because fluff is good!
This is like a rebel-girl version of the previous dress. Shorter, binded waist, and striking color. The shade of red is strong and precise which makes the wearer seem like it too. While I find the styling in this stock photo with the model of pixie hair interesting and convincing enough, I think it would also look pretty with jet black long hair with full bangs, paired with a gothic lolita make up (smokey eyes and blood red lips) and styled with elegant gothic/victorian accessories and blood red nails! Ooohlala
This dress gives me a 50s feeling.. probably because of the bow belt and the embellishments: diamonds. The very low neckline cut makes it modern but I'd probably wear it with a very big lace neck piece to cover some skin.
Another grecian inspired dress but with a more sophisticated finish. I love the sleeves and the draping on the bodice. The matte silver color would be really nice on any skin tone. I am a super fan of showing the shoulders subtly. Mmm, kind of considering designing a lolita dress inspired by this one. What do you think?
Okay.. This is a bit too sexy for my tastes but I love the treatment in this design. Heavy lace applique on the bodice, short skirt and overlaid with layers of tulle. It's kinda a fine line between "dress up" and "dress down" especially if that over skirt is detachable.. I think that would really be cool.
