Sometimes I think about how amazing it is that the bridal fashion industry can create hundreds designs using predominantly white and off-white as the theme. This season there are a few trends that seemed to show up quite strongly on the runways. If you are looking for that perfect, statement-making, jaw-dropping piece, one of these options might be the perfect fit.
Off the Shoulder
This look is elegance in its purest form. I love how it also has sexy undertones. Whenever I see gowns that are off the shoulder I think of a noble dancing at a ball in a royal court. It is timeless for a reason. Purchasing a dress of this style will both flatter and accentuate your natural beauty! I adore this Liancarlo gown with its tasteful lace detailing.
Bows Bows Bows!
Anyone who knows me personally can admit to the fact that I am a big sucker for bows. The bigger the better. Back in the day I took a Teen Vogue Gossip Girl Style Quiz and got Blair Waldorf. I thought to myself, “No, really?” Upon closer observation I realized that yes, really. She is one character who does sport lots of cute, elegant bows. Coincidence? I think not! My style has evolved throughout the years and is always changing but my love of bows still remains. I had originally planned to have a sash on my wedding gown 5 years ago but we lost it the morning of. If you are looking for something minimalist, elegant and feminine, a dress with clean lines and an eye catching bow like this Oscar de la Renta would be the perfect fit!
For a downright sexy look this is also an option. I think you would just have to hope it was a warm day outside or this could get a little chilly. There are so many variations of the plunging neckline on the runway — some have mesh and lace down your chest so you are not fully “baring it all.” I really love that option and would wear it to a fancy event. This gown by Isabelle Armstrong is breathtaking! I love love love it. What are your thoughts?
