Calling all brides and bridesmaids-to-be! It's official, Rixo is now your one-stop store for all your bridal needs. Rixo launched wedding dresses at the beginning of the year, and now it's expanding even further into the bridal market by releasing a long-awaited line of bridesmaids dresses.
Designed by co-founders Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey, the 14-piece collection features an array of styles to suit all tastes and shapes, from halter neck to V-neck, tiered skirts to A-line, long sleeves to capped.
To add a subtle sense of continuity throughout, you can find matching patterns and prints, including the new Virtues of Rosemary, and the much-loved Pen Print, across several gowns in shades of coral, green, blue and white, shades inspired by vintage lingerie and silk slips from the 1930s.
You can mix and match shades and styles, or go for the same tone throughout, the choice is yours and the possibilities are endless. And the best bit is you can rewear each style for any other occasion, on other words, the holy grail of bridesmaids dresses.
'Over the last (almost) 6 years of RIXO, we have absolutely loved seeing our ready-to-wear dresses on so many beautiful bridesmaids and bridal parties. We have used this time to really understand what makes the perfect bridesmaid dress - the style, fit and colours that our customers always come back to. Armed with this knowledge we decided to design a bridesmaid specific line that celebrates all of our findings so far and we are so excited to share it with everyone!' say Henrietta and Orlagh.
The collection is available to shop online now, and it will also be stocked in RIXO’s Bridal store in Belgravia, London (you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment).

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
