So you want a traditional bridal party but not a traditional bridesmaid dress? Consider outfitting your crew in a slinkier silhouette. When searching for sexy bridesmaid dresses, there are a few things to keep in mind: the color scheme, your wedding venue, the dress code and the comfort level of your crew (read: how much skin they're comfortable showing). Once you've answered these questions, it's time to start shopping. Pro tip: If you're opting for skimpier silhouettes, be sure to run it past your squad before you make any decisions to avoid bridesmaid dress drama—after all, you want your friends to look and feel like the best version of themselves on your day, too. A good rule of thumb? If you wouldn't wear it, don't ask your bffs to.

Below, we've rounded up our favorite sexy bridesmaid dresses from designers and brands we trust, organized by color. TLDR; there's a sexy bridesmaid dress for every wedding theme and budget.
