The full fluffy dress has made a comeback among the main trends. Of course, it had never totally disappeared but had been a bit sidelined recently. The strength radiating from these ultra-romantic dresses is both disarming and incredibly feminine. The layers and layers of frills, silk, tucks and pleats guarantee you a memorable entrance.
And these dresses are extremely photogenic, a fact not to be ignored when choosing a wedding dress!
Modesty is very trendy this year, so the whole body is covered. The Royal weddings, where modest and lowkey dresses are the basic requirement, had a big role to play in this. And the air of mystery is exactly what makes them so exciting. The high neckline, the lengthened sleeves and long dress have a turn of the century charm, but the stylized lines and use of modern materials guarantee the look is far from matronly.
3. Flash of thigh
If you enjoy more daring styles and love to show a bit of leg then this trend is for you. While some people think that the high slit should be reserved for the reception, don’t let that put you off! The secret is in the details, wear a medium heel to avoid a common effect. Choose a full-length veil to balance the high slit.
Besides the well known nude colours ginger is the latest shoo-in. This perfect shade is not brash but brings a little extra something to your appearance. It works well with both gold and silver. It is a super base colour for an ornate richly applique dress, both pearls and tulle shine beautifully on it. On the other hand, if you wouldn’t like to be dressed from head to toe in this colour, then introduce just a little in contrast to classic white.
The ever-popular bodice has less of a princess look when matched with a modern and asymmetrical skirt. Many designers use an exposed boning bodice shimmering on the sheer material for an artistic effect. This works well with tulle and lace but also has a pleasing effect with an Aline skirt.
If you are a rebel at heart add a thin belt for a daring effect!
Here there is no decadent display of feathers, beads and lace. The emphasis is purely on the shape of the dress, flowing to the floor with its perfect cut. This a great choice for those who love clear lines, architecture and puritanism. This trend is about perfect tailoring, where the minimum accessories play a maximum role. So less is definitely more!
7. Open back
This dress design is actually more sensuous than a low decollage. Designers have been using it for a long time, but the time of the low cut back has finally arrived. This is great for hot Summer weddings when it is important to allow the skin to breathe. The V-cut is the most popular, but the keyhole style has also made an appearance on the catwalk!
This special style comes into its own with pinned up hair or short hair.
Tiny ethereal feathers create the feeling of luxury, while still being very playful. You can cover your whole look with them, or if you prefer to have feathers as a detail e.g. on the hem of the skirt. Your vibes will be enchanting and feminine, mixed with a great element of drama. There is scope to play with the accessories as feathers, rhinestones and beads are great bedfellows!
