Top 10 Bridal Collection Trends for Last Year
Posted February 18, 2013on:
1. PEACHY KEEN
From naughty nudes to a deep, ripe shade of peach these new hues will warm up any skin tone and transform you into the ultimate blushing bride.
2. THE WAVE
Ruffles, tiers and pleats have morphed into raw-edged, rhythmic waves of fabric.
Delight in their natural ebb and flow as they plunge to new depths of chic.
3. THE THIGH’S THE LIMIT
Designers took scissors to fabric begging an answer to the question. Just how high will you go?
4. HEAD-TO-TOE BEADING
Last season’s minimal-moment gives way to this season’s full-on, all-over beaded brides. Designers cover shimmering sheaths in sparkling sequins, captivating crystals and brilliant bugle beads. Shine like the star you are.
5. A CAPE CRUSADE
Don’t shrug off this trend. The cape forever adds mystery, drama and romance in lace, tulle or a bold flock of feathers.
6. IT’S AN ILLUSION
It’s barely there, almost undetectable. Like a whisper, the fine stretchy net hugs your arms, décolleté, shoulders and back. Delicate enough to disappear, but strong enough to hold magnificent beading, embroidery and appliques. Now you see it. Now you don’t.
7. THE CORSET
Underwear as outerwear, the lingerie look heats up once again. Designers dare you to carve out your curves. Beautify your bust. Whittle your waist. A trim torso is easy with the new bodacious bodices.
8. THE LONG & THE SHORT OF IT
It’s time to play hide n’ seek. Neither short nor long, these dresses balance the best of both worlds.
9. THE COWL
The new drape. Front and back, shallow or deep, the slinky cowl gives a fresh new look to necklines.
10. SHORT STUFF
If you’ve got em’, flaunt em’. Legs that is. Show off your gams of glory in the sharpest, shortest, chicest dresses of the season. Feathers, lace, flowers, flounces, these bridal dresses have it all. Except length, that is.
