Bells and whistles? Some brides just don’t need ’em when it comes to their bridesmaids’ dresses. But there sure are a lot of sashes, bows, ruching, and patterns out there these days. What’s a basics-loving bride to do? Enter Simple Silhouettes, solving the bridesmaid frippery problem one classically chic dress at a time.
I feel like there’s not a huge amount of variation among Simple Silhouettes’ offerings, but when you get something right, why waste time trying to come up with one hundred very different incarnations of perfect? If a bride wants something else, she can go elsewhere. It’s called Simple Silhouettes for a reason, after all.
“Having sewn and designed clothes for herself since she was very young, she came to the rescue [of friends getting married] by designing some classic boat neck sheath dresses in a beautiful cashmere and wool fabric,” Christina Dalle Pezze says in her About page. “In doing so, she realized there was a real need for simple bridesmaid dresses. Determined to fill the void in the market, she designed a small line of timeless, elegant dresses, made them from fine silk fabrics, and called them bridesmaid dresses.”
I love the dresses hanging on the rack in perfect order – there’s something so inspirational about that part of the space, like you could just start planning your wedding right there on the couch with nothing more more than the beautiful colors to guide you.
