10. Fitted/ Pencil Bridesmaid Dresses with Slit or Shoulder Cape
If you’re looking for something different, make your girls wear any of the above modern bridesmaid dresses – a fitted/ pencil bridesmaid dress with shoulder cape or with a front slit.
We’re seeing bridesmaids strutting down the aisle, showing some legs in thigh-high slits. We see many brides allowing their girls to have their slit as high or as low they are comfortable with (well, not higher than will show their panties). A modest slit hurts no one and adds the right amount of punch.
Another new trend we see in the Nigerian bridesmaid fashion is the addition of cape – either shoulder cape or waist bridesmaid cape dresses. Brides who want something unusual and want to make a statement have their entourage wear bridesmaid dresses that have shoulder cape.
This style of bridesmaid dress adds some of the needed amounts of drama when the bridesmaids walk down the aisle. You can also choose to make the shoulder capes detachable to that it does not get in the way when they are dancing.
