Back in the days of yore, wearing black to a wedding would be considered shocking, if not downright scandalous. But luckily for us, the times have changed! Now that we’ve discovered that black is always a chic choice, they’ve become a classic sighting at weddings. And not just for the guests.

Black bridesmaids dresses have been a hot trend of late. Why? Because black looks good on everyone and adds a dose of simple refined, elegance to any look. Better yet, they look stunning contrasting with the bride’s wedding dress, don’t you think?

Black Bridesmaid Dresses – Oh so Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Whether you want a high-glamour gown or a gorgeous cocktail dress, a black bridesmaid dress always looks stylish, never dates and can be worn again (which is a major bonus). But if you doubt black’s chic status, then just look at Audrey Hepburn. She was the queen of sophisticated style.

I think black bridesmaids dresses are perfect for channelling a little Breakfast at Tiffany’s because they captured that refined simple chic New Yorkers are famous for. Here’s the proof:

Dresses we heart (in order): PennyCharis and Vienna.

I have to say I really, really love each of these dresses but they all tickle my fancy for their own reasons:

For the Penny, I love the flattering cut and the folded skirt. It’s simple but interesting. I have to say the baby blue pumps are pretty cute too.

For the Charis, I love the little belt. It’s a sweet and ladylike design.

For the Vienna, well, who doesn’t appreciate a sweetheart neckline? Plus I love the folds on the bodice, which add a little simple detail. Totally effortless chic, am I right?
