Bridesmaid suits: Zara

They’ll make any wedding party look instantly chic.

Traditionally the bride and bridesmaids will wear dresses, and the groom and groomsmen will wear suits. However, it’s 2019 and this means anyone can wear whatever they damn well like. 

Modern brides are chucking the rule book out of the window, and many are opting to wear alternative outfits like jumpsuits, trouser suits or bright and colourful dresses instead of the traditional white dress. 

To make alternative outfit shopping easier, we’ve already made an edit of said outfits, here. Recently we told you how more and more guests are opting to wear jumpsuits for the occasion too — of course, we’ve also made a handy edit of these.

A recent bride took to Instagram to show her bridal party wearing trouser suits, and it made us want to get in on the trend. 

The bride Joy Mica Cañete chose to dress her wedding “squad” not only in trouser suits but also in white (which would never usually happen). We love the chic update on the typical bridesmaid dress looks. 

Want to try out the look? Shop some of the sharpest suits below that are guaranteed to make an impact. Best part? You’ll be able to wear them as separates after the big day too. We’re thinking a chic blazer with white jeans and trainers, or trousers with a cami top and mules for evening. 

The possibilities are endless with these styles…
