Cashmere Bridesmaid Dresses
A cashmere bridesmaid dress is an understated color and a popular choice for brides who want a wedding theme with bright, pastel or dark colors.
The cashmere color is light, warm and similar to the pale tones of cream or white. The neutral color and the accommodating tone of cashmere bridesmaid dresses work well in most wedding settings by balancing instead of dominating other colors. In clothing, cashmere is a yarn made from the downy wool found at the roots of the Kashmir goat’s hair. [Continue reading..]
Cashmere Bridesmaid Dress Silhouette and Fabric
To ensure that bridesmaids will stand out during the wedding day, yet will not steal the spotlight away from the bride, be mindful of the silhouette and fabric for the cashmere bridesmaid dresses.
If you decide to wear a mermaid style or a ball gown on your wedding day, have your bridesmaids wear straight cut knee length shifts or sheaths. If you prefer a lace wedding gown, bridesmaids may opt for silk or chiffon.
It is best for bridesmaids to wear the same style cashmere bridesmaid dresses for uniformity. Additionally, minimal details on the dresses will help distinguish their gowns from that of the bride.
Neckline Styles and Accessories for Cashmere Bridesmaid Dresses
If your bridesmaids are able to choose the style of their cashmere bridesmaid dress, then they should be able to determine which bridesmaid dress necklines will suit best their body shape including any accessories.
The one shoulder style is regarded as a contemporary choice. The style features a single strap coming across the front from either the right or left shoulder. The one shoulder style accentuates the collarbone and best suited for bridesmaids with larger busts or pear shape.
Halter is ideal for bridesmaids with broad shoulders because the style draws attention to the center of the body. The style adds curve, flatters the broad shoulders and complements almost all body shapes, especially the hourglass type. Choosing a necklace for a halter neckline can be challenging because the style creates a narrow V neck. A necklace with narrow pendant with a sharp end will suit a halter neckline. However, if the halter neckline is styled with a spacing in the fabric or a keyhole at the bust, then it is better to not wear a necklace at all. Furthermore, a halter cashmere bridesmaid dress with full frontal coverage looks great with an ornate collar necklace.
A bateau or boat neck neckline is an ideal choice to offset wide hips because it gently follows the curve of a woman’s collarbone and creates an illusion of wide shoulders. This style looks best on bridesmaids with smaller heads, long necks and small chest, due to the effect it has on highlighting an hourglass figure since it covers the arms comfortably and so elegantly. Longer pendant necklace will help draw attention away from this wide neckline.
The crew or round neckline is a simple and versatile style as well as flexible as it suits all body types. However, this style tends to emphasize a short neck, a large bust or a double chin, making them look wider. Bridesmaids with short necks may still be able to wear a crew neckline as long as they pick a design with a deeper scoop. Enhance your cashmere bridesmaid dress with a crew neckline by wearing a long pendant necklace or one with tassels or charms dangling at the end.
