Calling all hopeless romantics! Long, billowy sleeves give a simple gown an instant vintage feel. Opt for an off-the-shoulder, sheer style for an effortlessly airy look, or go for floral lace to make a boho-chic statement.
Bring the drama with this frilly, ultra-feminine detail. Allover rufflles add dimension to a slim silhouette, while a full skirt of cascading ruffles (in pastel blue, if you’re brave) is equal parts whimsical and fashion forward.
If you’re eloping or looking for a wedding-worthy bachelorette or bridal shower ensemble, we’ve got you covered. Jumpsuits and pantsuits are comfortable, figure flattering and totally chic. A beaded number works for a night out on the town, while embroidered lace is versatile enough to rock at any time of day.
Metallic gowns gave the bridal fashion week runways a little extra sparkle. Perfect for an evening affair under the stars, gold, silver and champagne-tinted dresses are bold but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you’re rocking a gown with metallic fabric or embellishments, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.
Florals have been hot for a while, but botanical motifs (think: vines, branches, leaves) were everywhere this season. An edgier take on more traditional embroidery and appliqué, this nature-inspired trend feels romantic and contemporary all at once.
We love this look straight out of the Elizabethan era for two reasons: Structured corsets accentuate the narrowest part of your body, and they’re sexy without being too over the top. Choose a corset top with a ball gown skirt for a totally royal look, or keep it slinky and lingerie-inspired with a curve-skimming silhouette.
If veils aren’t your thing, consider a bridal cape or capelet. This ethereal add-on gives even the simplest dress a regal tilt, but still feels modern. Another plus: It’s easy to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change with this trend. Wear a cape or capelet for your ceremony, then take it off when you’re ready to dance the night away.
Flowy, lightweight dresses are just made for a tropical destination wedding or low-key outdoor affair. Flutter sleeves are flirty and feminine, while an intricate lace bodice adds a sophisticated contrast to this effortless style.
