The Style Edit, Wedding Edition: Pastels

One of the most noteworthy trends in bridesmaids’ dresses is mixing and matching design elements, whether it’s color, silhouette, accessories, or, for the adventurous bridal party—all of the above! Since spring is upon us, we’re highlighting one of the prettiest mix-and-match palette options for the bride’s best gals: pastels. Pastel dresses instantly add a soft, feminine appeal to your entire wedding motif.

Dressing the bridesmaids in various hues of pastel allows for a more individuality for each of the ladies while still creating a harmonious and cohesive look overall. It also adds more dimension and interest to your wedding photos!

Here are some useful tips to pull off a mix and match pastel look for your wedding:

Coordinate. While it’s easy to just give the girls free reign over what color of pastel they choose, make sure everyone is in communication with each other on what hues they want to wear—particularly if the group is spread out in different cities and not able to shop together. You want a good mix of pastels that look cohesive together, so giving the bridesmaids a little guidance is key.

 

A full shade apart. If you’re looking to do pastels in an ombré or gradient spectrum (soft shades of pink, for example), make sure each dress is at least a full shade away from the other. If two dresses are too similar in hue but not quite exact, it will end up looking off in pictures. Again, coordination with your bridesmaids is very important here.

 

Decide what elements to match. To keep the bridal party looking cohesive even when each girl is wearing a different shade of pastel, find elements that will stay the same across the board. Whether it’s hemline (long dresses vs short dresses), dress silhouette or fabrication, keeping a common thread will tie in the mixed pastels look together.

Of course, if you want to be more daring and bold, it’s totally fine to mismatch all elements! Anything goes!

Cruisin’- 9 Plus Size Picks for An Amazing Spring Break

It's hard to believe that spring break is about to start, as well as the height of resort and cruise season--especially when I just looked through my Facebook feed, and almost all of my friends' pictures are of snow or comparison shots of their kids or dogs next to massive piles of snow. Or just…snow. 

With my role in the Zappos Customer Loyalty Team, I get to talk to people every day who are heading for warmer climes. Florida and the Bahamas seem to be the most popular places people are heading to this year to get out of the cold.

A change in latitude can be an amazing thing for the attitude, and there is nothing that makes you feel better, and gets you ready for spring and all its new beginnings, like a new wardrobe piece that is bright, colorful, and wonderfully feminine and flirty.

Try a fabulous dress in bright colors or a great new bathing suit that accentuates your best assets and makes you feel like Hollywood royalty. Armed with spring hottest bright hues, you will be ready for that warm weather when it finally arrives- or when you arrive to your snow-free destination!

The Perfect Fit: Swimwear for Different Body Types

Let’s face it, swimsuit shopping isn’t exactly on most people’s top five list of favorite things to do. It often involves a lot of guesswork, dressing rooms with less-than-flattering lighting, and that nagging voice inside that keeps saying: “I should hit the gym more…”

But no need to have a swimsuit-season meltdown! The most important thing to keep in mind when finding the right swimsuit is FIT. Focusing on styles that work well with YOUR body type (not the Photoshopped model in the catalog!) can mean the difference between a meltdown and easy-breezy & fun swimsuit shopping!

Our swimwear buyers have handpicked a few stellar examples below of the most flattering types of swimwear for specific body types to make swimwear shopping a breeze.

Don’t forget that all of our swimwear receives FREE next business day shipping + FRRE return shipping, too! Now you can take the swimsuit shop in the comfort of your own room. Easier than you thought, huh? Let's get started:

Athletic Build: For women who don’t have too much in the curves department (i.e. no hips, broader shoulders), a two-piece bikini is generally more flattering because it breaks up the straight line of your body. A lower-waisted bottom also accentuates your widest part, while fringe and ruffles add more volume and femininity where you want it.  

TYR Crosscut Fit Workout Solid Bikini Set 

L*Space Dolly Fringe Bandeau & Novelties Hanki Panki Bitsy Bottom

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

 

Pear-Shaped: If you’ve got a fuller lower half, a fold-over bottom or something that’s cinched and adjustable on the sides gives your curves more room to move! If you’re going for a print at the bottom, make sure to balance it out with a print up top.

Vintage-style high-waisted bottoms are also great for giving a fuller backside more coverage. Plus, they’re super flirty and cute!

Badgley Mischka Maya Triangle Bra & Adjustable Brief

Seafolly Bella Rose Bandeau Bustier & High-Waisted Pant

 badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

Apple-Shaped: Ruching is your best friend when it comes to camouflaging a larger tummy. Find swimsuits that accentuate your bust and show a clear separation between your chest and your stomach. A one-shoulder suit also calls attention to your top half and away from your mid section. 

Trina Turk Zanzibar One Piece

Miraclesuit Net Work Jena Swimsuit

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

Large Bust: Find halter bikini tops with wider straps to offer the support you need. An underwire also reinforces lift and support where you need it most. Opt for an adjustable back for the perfect fit all around.

Seafolly Goddess DD Cup Halter Top & Twist Band Mini Hipster Bottom

Vix Para Bia Tube Triangle Top & Long Tie Side Full Bottom

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear 

Small Bust: To add more volume, find tops with ruching and ruffles at the bust. A bold, busy print also helps call attention to your top half.

Embrace your ability to wear smaller, sexier styles like the bandeau! Play around with fun cuts and trendy, slinky shapes that larger-chested gals couldn’t pull off. It’s all about having fun after all!
