Online wedding fashion destination SilkFred reveals trends for bridesmaids

The online wedding fashion destination SilkFred reveals why a multiway bridesmaid dress is proving popular this season after the platform has reported a 225% increase in searches for 'multiway bridesmaid dress' in the last 30 days. SilkFred's head stylist Megan Watkins tells us, "One of the main pros of multiway bridesmaid dresses is their ability to be worn in various styles, meaning each of your bridesmaids can feel their best. They can experiment with different necklines, sleeve styles, and draping techniques to find the most flattering look for their unique features." Megan continues, "A huge plus to multiway dresses is their re-wearability - making them a more eco-friendly option as well. Bridesmaids can style their multiway dresses differently for future events such as parties, formal events, or even other weddings. This versatility not only adds sustainability value to the dress, but it also makes it a practical investment for bridesmaids."
