YES. A million times YES. Black bridesmaid dresses are ALWAYS a classic choice, especially in the fall and winter months. If you were a bridesmaid and the bride said, “Pick any dress you love in black”, it would be a dream come true. (You probably already even have one in your closet!) A black dress is always in style and your bridesmaids will actually wear their dress again. Black bridesmaid dresses are easy to buy off of the rack, they’re wildly affordable, and even mismatched bridesmaid dresses in black look tailored and chic. (Blue or green boast millions of shades, but black is black.) So, if you’re ready to give bridesmaids the go-ahead on The Little Black Dress (LBD, or LBBD in today’s post), read on to be inspired by some of our favorites, along with accessories she’ll love. Enjoy!
